Dressing Up: Silk Track Pants

| Track Pants: Parker (on sale $45 via The Mix) | Top: ASOS c/o |
| Leather Backpack: ASOS c/o | Shades: Forever21 |


About the Look:
Let's talk about a fun trend right now: athletic inspired pieces. I tried on this pair because they were on sale ($45, originally $200), with little hope that they would work for me. I knew they would be long on me (and let's be real, who has time for alterations?) and I was concerned about the lack of structure that comes with a silk pant. I wasn't sold on these until I stepped into a pair of heels. I relaxed shape and fabric desperately needs something to anchor the look (the heels). I added a fitted blazer for additional definition. It goes to show you, that styling a piece correctly can really change how you feel in it. I didn't fall in love with these at first sight, but after I dressed them up my feelings quickly changed! Dressy track pants are a great piece for the office for something edgy, yet, professional. I selected a few great pairs in the widget above (most are budget friendly). I wouldn't recommend spending too much on the trend, but think it's one that you'll have fun wearing this fall for a sassy-chic professional look. The J.Crew pair is a solid option! Let me know what you think of this look in the comments below.  

PS- I will announce the winner of the ASOS giveaway this week. My PR contact I believe is enjoying a vacation :) right now. Just wanted to let you know I didn't forget about this.
