cigarette pants {neon}

Pants, Top, Cardigan & Ring- Thrifted; Shoes- Priceless UK; Bracelet- Boutique in Montreal; Scarf- Boutique in UK; Nail Polish- Pink a Boo by Essie & Gold Digger by Aldo

If I had to choose my favourite style of pants it would have to be cigarette pants. Slim fitting & cropped with a slight flare at the base, they remind me of something Audrey Hepburn would wear with a flowy blouse and head scarf while driving in a sassy convertible (or masculine black Audi in my case). Here are two ways I've worn these pants to work recently, the first look was for a casual Friday and the second for a volunteer recruitment session. 



{Today is neon day, a trend I am slowly but surely introducing into my closet, one lime green scarf at a time!}

  1. This is very Audrey Hepburn like, especially with the scarves! I like the look! I'm not sure what my favorite style of pants is, I like anything that looks good on me I guess!

    Your briefcase is also very cute!

  2. Very beautiful looks! Both of them! I love the colored heels in both. Love the brooch on the second look too.

  3. Perfect way to pull neon into a look (print and scarf). My fav pants are zoot-suit style ones - wide legs with suspenders. However I usually stick to just the wide-leg, but only because I've yet to buy suspenders. One of these days.

  7. I'm a huge fan of skinny jeans just because I find them comfortable, but I do love your cigarette pants - they're my favourite more-"professional" pant to wear :)

  8. Cigarette pants are a fantastic choice as a favorite, I'm very partial to colorful skinny jeans. I love the way your styled these pants with the printed top and lime scarf. Those red shoes are amazing! I also love that cape and super fun purple briefcase!

  9. I am a big fan of the cigarette pant, but finding them seems impossible. If they're the right leg style for what I want (not quite skinny, but not quite flare), the waist is huge. I'm hoping to hit up a thrift store, find a pair that works in the waist, and then make the legs work. But I love how they just look so much more elegant and polished than a regular dress pant!

  10. I adore your neon polka-dot top! It's so cute. And the added neon scarf is fabulous!

  11. I adore these pants! They are so classic and versatile. Pretty sure we should each have a pair (or two, or three) in our closets. Love that you added the bright top and shoes in the first outfit. And the neutrals with a fun pop of color from those green shoes in the second look is so much fun. Love them both!

  12. I think I don't have one favourite style of pants but I definitely like skinnies and shorts. when it comes to your two looks my fave is the first one because the usage of colours is just awesome! though I'm pretty much in love with that special blue briefcase!

  14. I like that style too--they're so versatile! And I love that bright printed top, especially with that fun lime green scarf!

  15. Recently I have "discovered" this style too, and have been wearing some ants like those a lot! I loved the first pair of shoes, and the second too (well, you know I love shoes!) The second jacket is fabulous and the brooch is amaaaazing! Great nails too!

  16. Gotta say I love wide legs for me...I am short and curvy...so I always get them high-waisted to give myself some height and the flowy legs hide my thighs :P But my second fav is skinnies/cigarette pants like these. I've been wanting some in hot pink!

One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
