The warmer weather makes me want to add color to everything! So, for today’s post, I am styling an orange silk top with flared ankle pants. This bright orange color and ankle pants are both trending right now, and as basic pieces, these will still be wearable as trends change.
My flared ankle pants are from Old Navy so were VERY inexpensive. I wanted to try this style out before investing a lot of money in it. I’m not sure how they look on my shorter frame, but they are cool and comfortable and I will be able to wear them on warm spring days. What do you think of this trend?
I’ve had the top for some time and have worn it under suit jackets, with casual blazers and by itself. I love the double-tiered front and the drape of the silk. And I especially love the bright orange color!
I added this beautiful square silk scarf. When I saw it at Nordstroms recently, I just had to have it. The many colors can be worn with so many things! Here I am styling it tied simply in a square knot.
I wanted to try the tassel earrings that are so popular right now. I’ve seen other bloggers styling them and thought they looked cute and fun. I picked this pair with the tan color up from Nordstroms–they are by a designer named gorjana and they are called Phoenix. I really like them! I like the way the gold pops above the neutral silk tassels.
Finally, I added espadrilles and my cropped jean jacket; pieces you’ve seen before. The two-tone tan shades in the espadrilles tie the outfit together, don’t you think?
Tomorrow I will be styling a jean skirt–another “trend” that has been around for a long time!
