There is something so sexy about an all-brown ensemble in the fall. Idk why, but it just feels…right.

Earth tones are so grounding and comforting, yet it’s so easy to make them look sophisticated and elegant, depending on the material, cut and design of the garment.

Perfect for a business meeting or a night out, earth tone outfits are always a great choice.

In this third and final installment of Shop The Look #4, we’ll be focusing on the power and pizazz of a pair of well-tailored brown dress pants.

Why I Recommend These Pants

Is it just me, or do these pants scream POWER??

Well-designed and tailored, I like how these pants are loose-fitting and relaxed but still appear structured and professional. There is room for your legs to breathe, which makes these a great choice for an outdoor business event on a warm day.

I also like the way the pleats lie. They aren’t overdone or distracting, which I appreciate. Less is more when it comes to pleats, for me. Too many pleats can quickly look bunchy and wrinkled. No bueno.

I like how the clasp cinches her waistline. When it comes to pants, I tend to prefer clasps over buttons because I think they offer a cleaner look.

And the belt loops are the perfect touch. It’s always nice to have the option of adding extra support if, for whatever reason, you aren’t able to take a trip to your tailor before wearing the pants. It’s a plus that the belt loops are designed in a way that make the pants look great, with or without the belt.

The Faux Leather Straight Leg Pant

Why I Recommend These Pants

It’s a fact: faux leather is sexy.

*When manufactured well* it tends to always look good and rarely loses its shape, regardless of how you move or what you do.

It’s easy to keep clean (yes, it is safe to machine wash faux leather, so you get to save money by skipping the dry cleaners!) And faux leather has a decent shelf life of 2 to 5 years, depending on the quality of the material and how well you care for your clothing. (*See FAQs for details on how to care for faux leather clothing.)

In regards to these pants in particular, I like how they hug her frame. They accentuate her figure in a way that is attractive but not excessive. That makes these safe to wear to an office event and just as perfect for a night out on the town.

The straight leg cut is always a nice clean look to me. Regardless of your height or body type, you can never go wrong with a straight leg pant!

The Billowy Satin Cargo Pant

Why I Recommend These Pants

I think these are so COOL! 

Satin cargo pants? Sign me up!

I’m all about mixing comfort and glamour to create a great look, and these pants definitely fit the bill.

The flowy fit frees you from all restrictions, allowing you to move how you want and even eat what you want! The cargo pockets are adorable, though I probably wouldn’t put anything in them to prevent lumpy looking legs. The slit at the ankle gives a sexy little peekaboo moment while showcasing your shoe. And the drawstring waistband can be easily adjusted for comfort.

The only downside to pants like these is that 1.) if you tend to get sweaty, these pants will show it. If you’re nervous, these pants will snitch on you, so beware! lol and 2.) satin usually gets wrinkled really quickly. 

But not these pants! These pants are made with thick satin, which makes them wrinkle resistant. Sit, squat, and jump as much as you want. This material can handle it!

But that doesn’t solve the issue of sweat marks, specifically butt sweat marks. So I recommend you wear a pair of sweat-resistant underwear to help you avoid embarrassing moments.

All in all, I love that these pants look good AND feel good.

The Pleated Wide Leg Pant

Why I Recommend These Pants

I’ve already discussed how I feel about pleated pants, and here’s another example of how wonderful they can look.

There are more pleats in this pair, which makes them seem a bit busier to me, but I still like them regardless. I love how the wide pant cuff billows. I can imagine them blowing in the wind with every step, and I think that sounds like a scene out of a beautiful movie!
