I am definitely a sucker for a good pair of printed skinnies. These (from Zara), are among my favorite because they are so fun to add a pop of color to. Not only were they super affordable, the black and off-white print is not quite ikat and not quite baroque/brocade like most of the patterns we’ve been seeing so much of this season. Just a touch different, and I appreciate that. On top of all this, they are extremely comfortable, yet still good to throw on with a good heel for a night out almost anywhere. I chose red as my pop of color, in honor of some good friends who are packing up for an adventure and moving to Spain for a few years. These pants are comfortable because of the amount of stretch, which is why I would also recommend sizing down if possible. These guys stretched out so much after the first couple of wears that I can now take them off without unzipping or unbuttoning them. Talented, I know…I threw on my most comfortable pair of trusty red heels, and a small, tasseled bag to match, and had a great time catching up with people before sending them off to Spain. ¡Ole!
