Is there anything in the world better than a good pair of statement pants?
If you answered yes, you are correct! If you answered no, get out (but please actually don’t).
For those of you who might have not guessed already, I am a serious pants addict. I love pants of any shape, size, color, and material. There is something about them that just make me feel so powerful and like I can accomplish anything when I am rocking a pair.
That is why when I laid my eyes on these fun crane culottes, my world stood still. They were one of those holy grail Forever 21 finds, where they were the only pair left hidden within one of the nightmare-inducing “orphan” racks. When I stood in the dressing room and zipped these bad boys up, I heard angels sing. The fit made me feel great and the pattern really spoke to me. Let’s be honest here, It was a magic, meant-to-be moment.
Ok, maybe I should try to be less dramatic, I just REALLY love these pants!
Statement pants are my genuine go-to outfit staple because they can be styled so effortlessly, yet they always make you look so chic and put together.
I know you are thinking that there is no way styling something like crane culottes can be simple but assure you it is! In this case, I paired them with a white Topshop wrap top and my hot pink Sam Edelman pumps. My goal was to keep the look fairly simple and daytime appropriate.
Are you unsure of how to style your statement pants? Here are a few of my favorite ways to dress them up:
Looking for something to wear to brunch or when you are out-and-about? Keep things simple by dressing your pants down with a basic t-shirt/top and a pair of sneakers. Looks like this ooze major street style vibes, which makes you look effortless and chic.

Whenever I go out, I always seem to gravitate towards the same old bodycon dress or bandage skirt. Yawn. I started spicing up my night out looks by rocking statement trousers paired with an equally bold blouse or crop top and strappy heels.
