If there’s anything I know how to do, it’s taking the rules and twisting them in my favor. Sophomore year, first semester, we were given a list of appropriate things to wear for our field observations. The first day I wore a pencil skirt and heels.. WORST. DECISION. EVER. I soon realized that hellooooo, I can literally wear whatever I want as long as it’s a.) done tastefully and b.) not jeans. Therefore, I live for different types of pants. Corduroys, skinny trousers, skinny khakis, chinos — they’re all better than dress pants and they’re definitely better than pencil skirts. I have a pair of grey cords from J.Crew that I got on sale for some ridiculously cheap price and they are my FAVORITE. Fitted sweaters or blouses topped with a blazer are the perfect pairing when it comes to these modern dress pants.
