Your Pants Need a Spring Refresh

Switching up your trousers can rework your whole wardrobe

It's time to make your pants a little more interesting. We're not saying get rid of your favorite jeans or anything. We're simply reminding you that as we transition into a new season, it's the perfect time to think of fresh ways of looking good. And right now that means getting dressed in the morning by anchoring your outfit with some pants that pack a bit of a punch. They don't have to be loud, but they should be impactful. The kind of trousers that make people notice you for all the right reasons—something that can pay off if you're heading into work or on a date. Herewith, three solid suggestions to get you started along with our favorite pairs to pull on right now.


Pick a Pattern

You've got plain khaki chinos and navy dress pants. Spice things up for the spring with some prints or patterns. They can be classic checks and plaids, bold camo or more subtle yet graphic texture.
