Okay… So I’m going to be as transparent as any style blogger could possibly be in this moment, and let you in on a little secrete of mine… The first time I put these BCBG fitted knit pants on, the only thing I could hear in my head was the beat dropping to Nicki Minaj’s song “Anaconda”, and the phrase, “Oh my gosh, look at her butt”. LOL! Now, clearly I do not have a rear end like Miss Nicki Minaj, but, it is kind of fun to feel like it every now and then!
I like having a fun pair of pants that are easy to throw in a bag for a last minute trip, and this pair certainly fits that mold. They’re comfortable, they travel well, and they can go from casual to dressy depending on how they are styled. With the right accessories, these pants can easily transition from day to night.
I wanted to keep the Nicki Minaj inspiration going, so to complete the look I opted for leather and fringe, which I love so much. It was also an opportune time to break out my oldie but goody ‘Joy Collection’ Gucci Bag. This bag is very special to me because, it was the first designer bag I ever purchased for myself, while living in Los Angeles. This classic monogrammed tote is still to this day one of my favorite bags. The pewter detail looks great with looks that have lots of black and metallic detail like this look does.
And speaking of details, I am a sucker for embellished tops and edgy accessories. This look really came full circle, because every piece had its own unique and subtle detail of metallic that played off of each other effortlessly. Not to mention the fringe belt that screams take my look to the next level. It’s always a good idea to have accessories in your wardrobe that can do just that. Everything doesn’t have to be over the top, just a few key pieces that subtly take that look from cute to fierce!
It’s pretty safe to say, you’ll be seeing more of me in these pants this season… I am in love. If you’re anything like me, you need all of your clothes to be functional, and I feel like I hit the jackpot with these knit beauties. Not only do I get the function, and a great print, but I get a fabulous fit and great quality! Not to mention being 5’1″, and finding pants that fit perfectly is a win win! I cannot wait to wear these beauties every chance I get this season and show off the booty I didn’t even have to go to the gym for!
