Spring has finally arrived and it has brought along sunshine to melt away the snow and the dark colors from our wardrobes to reveal the fresh hues of the new and light season! While most days a bright sweater or a light colored blouse are a definite go to, there are still those days when I find myself wanting a  darker silhouette. In the Winter months I would opt for an all black attire, but with the sun shining, I reach for something navy to satisfy this style desire. A pair of fitted navy pants, such as the J.Crew “Any Day Pant”, are perfect for Spring days when you want to keep a sleek look. Navy is the perfect dark neutral for Spring due to its lighter undertone. Paired with a poppy red sweaterpoppy red sweater, velvet ballet flats, and topped with a timeless trench coat, your look will be as fresh for Spring as the lovely daisies blooming at your feet!

J.Crew’s “Any Day Pant” is by far one of the greatest purchases I have made for my wardrobe! These pants are light weight for a warm day but also thick enough to keep you cozy on those chilly and rain days Spring ever so lovingly gives us. They feel and stretch like a high quality pair of leggings but look like tailored pants to give you a classic look without taking away your comfort. J.Crew offers these in both regular and petite, making it easy to find a pair to fit, but I still had the waist taken in a bit at my local seamstress as I always do for a perfect fit. (Read here on why I always tailor my clothes and you should too!)

 You can style these pants with a casual t-shirt and a pair of Keds for when you are in a hurry or dress it up a bit like I chose to with a fitted sweater and little ballet flats. Brunch with your girl friends or a day of classes will never be more fashionable and comfortable than with these chic pants. I always find myself reaching for them and finding new fun ways to style this classic Spring piece! Button downs, sweaters, t-shirts, trench coats, sneakers, or ballet flats, the combinations of casual and dressy are endless with the J.Crew “Any Day Pant” so let your creative side shine and style these pants for whatever your Spring day has in store for you.
