So, first I was going to title this "cheap pants, 3 ways" but I changed my mind. However, that's what this is. I picked this pants up at Old Navy for less than $15 bucks! They are all cotton, washable, and comfy. In addition, this style is "trend-right". They will not only be wearable for more than one summer, they can also be paired with boots for a cooler time.
The photo on the left is a look I would wear on a cooler evening for dinner with friends or perhaps a meeting with a client. As a side-note, though this is not meant to be a story of budget but I must tell you the shoes cost more than the outfit but are one of my favs. The middle outfit is something I would wear today. The temperature is set to be in the mid-80's today but as I have mentioned, I am not one to go for shorts first. The scarf as a belt softens the outfit a bit as do the shoes (another of my favs). You could easily change this out with a cloth belt and sneakers for a more casual look. The outfit on the right is perfect for date night in the summer on a cooler night. I love the way that just changing to heels and adding a casual jacket you really can change the look of an outfit. One final note, it is the final touches of each outfit (blazer, jewelry, and shoes) is where my money is ... versatile, high-quality, classic pieces.
