Pants are BIG this season, literally. They are wide, spacious (read comfortable) rich in fabric, texture and/or color. All you need is a good pair to make it a great outfit.
If you ask me, get two pairs: one simple, basic color and cut that goes with anything for an office day look and one luxurious, rich in texture and color for an evening look. Pair it with some basic, fine sweaters, not too tight, I prefer mens. It will look and feel great.
Here is some inspiration:
Celine and Stella McCartney for a smart office look. Add some color if you like, it’s mood lifting
Richard Chai Love – bohemian, poetic, love it; great for evening look also
Luxurious, love the color
And something really affordable and really good looking from Mango
As for sizes, it’s better to go with bigger than too tight in this case, well, in any case, I would say. Here, with more fabric and volume it will look more elegant and refined.
