We love the new ways designers are using polka dots, like J.Crew's navy and ivory silk 'Melancholy' pants. They have a wide-leg silhouette that slightly pools over your shoes and loops, should you wish to wear a belt.
To say that we're obsessed with color is an understatement, says J.Crew - the brand even has a dedicated 'Color Librarian' who names each new shade when inspiration strikes. Dyed 'Wildflower' pink, these pants are cut from silk crepe de chine and slightly pool at the floor. Tuck in your top to highlight the elegant tie belt.
J.Crew's pants are traced with plush velvet along the sides and wide-leg cuffs – we think it plays up their retro feel. Tailored from wool in the brand's signature navy, they sit high on the waist and have pressed creases through the front. Try yours with contrasting pumps.
Designed to sit flatteringly high on the waist, J.Crew's 'Kent' pants are made from crisp army-green cotton and are cut in a cropped wide-leg silhouette. Wear them with a striped tee and sneakers or take note from the brand's styling team, who think a mustard or marigold shirt is this pair's perfect partner.
