Or the conference attendees will get a bit of a show.
You see, I'm bottom-less.
So off to the mall I go.
Banana Republic Slim ankle pant (already gone from the site, but another slim fit ankle pant here), Gap Perfect Khaki pants in lava orange, Gap Slim cropped refined pants in citron, T Tahari Roberta Pants, Lauren Ralph Lauren Nicklaus Cotton Twill Sailor Pants, Rachel Zoe Pants Hutton Flare, Sonia Rykiel Pants Color Block, The Limited Drew Sleek Ankle Pant in pink
So there isn't anything particularly crazy in here, but these choices are all unexpected enough in either color, cut, or detail to satisfy this I-Refuse-to-March-to-Anyone-Else's-Drum Girl. Whether cropped or ankle, on-trend orange, buttoned, or bright, each of these pants (and I must say, I'm really always drawn to skirts first) has a Leetle Something. Not all of them are affordable, but some of them certainly are, and they're interesting enough to add to my closet and I can happily get substantial wear out of them.
Admittedly, this post covers Bottoms. It's specifically for those of you (and me!) who have to wear some prescribed top to an Official Function. What to Wear to a Conference still has lots of answers. There are business casual conferences, business dress conferences, and even, well, there's Comic-Con. For some other tips on conference wear, head over to these friendly bloggers for their takes:
- Vyque of Fasshonaburu asked three local bloggers to put together some conference-worthy looks, here.
- Alison of Wardrobe Oxygen authored some basic conference fashion rules, then breaks it down into a few different types of conferences, here.
- Naina of Style'N shared her fashion conference look, which I think you could definitely take to another, not-as-conservative-but-still-businessy conference, here.
- Emily of Capital Style dissects the current boys' shirt trend and puts together a look (and some options) I think perfect for a conference attendee who's both professional and stylish, here.
