Sorry for the delay in updating that bad link for the white sweater; I was in a hotel last night that had… shall we say “limited” internet service? Thanks for letting me know that it was broken, and for being so patient while I hastened to fix it!
This is actually a post in support of the usefulness of the Weekly Timeless Wardrobe! Once a heroine has those neutral pieces in hand, adding something fun like these pants is much more practical; she will have a ton of ways to wear them immediately.
What makes these pants work? A neutral background (I prefer the dark neutral here, but in hot weather a light neutral background makes sense too), the 2nd neutral included in the print, as well as one of her accent colors…
I feel like the white tee shirt (or other white top) needs something other than black for shoes, in order to balance the look of everything. You may not agree…
This is an outfit I would wear every week:
I really love this red watch…
If our heroine wants to tone things down, she doesn’t need to include a ton of red in her outfit. She really doesn’t need to include any!
Depending on the weather, the weight of the fabric in the pants, and how comfortable our heroine is with this idea, these pants can be worn well into cooler weather. Opaque tights under them will be both warm and give her a nice long line down to the tips of her toes!
Sometimes you have to break out the floral shoes!
A scoop-neck sweater with the sleeves pushed up to mid-forearm can be worn much of the year – especially cool evenings…
If your pants aren’t flimsy and gauzy, you could wear them well into the autumn! Who says florals are only for spring and summer? Cold weather is when we need to see flowers!
This sweater/blazer is SO tempting… I could see it worn all kinds of ways, all winter long…
The floral pants bring some life, and whimsy, to an otherwise very classic outfit:
And yes, heroines don’t only wear black!
I have a pair of dotted pants that are a nice weight to wear on mild autumn (or even winter) days; I must remember to pull them off the rack more often!
Would you dare wear printed pants in cold weather?
p.s. 4 years ago, the wardrobe of the day was built around a gorgeous floral scarf!
