There’s no questioning my obsession with oversized and tailored clothing, but there comes a time when I’m utterly in love with a good statement piece. These Tory Burch color block pants are my current statement obsession. The bold and funky pattern doesn’t come off very approachable at a glance, but they look better on than you think. If you need a few quick tips on how to style statement pieces like the pants I’m wearing, you’re in the right place.
Pair it with basics
With stripes, a bold block of yellow, and intricate patchwork positioning, these pants are the definition of a statement piece. If you have a similar item whether it’s an intricate shirt or a cool jacket, the best way to style it is by creating unity and balance with basics. This white button down takes down the boldness of the pants a small notch and allows it to pop out.
Aim for structure
Structured pieces such as a poplin top or a classic heel know how to tie a look together no matter what you might be wearing. I have always loved a mishmash of everything tailored and undone, so the heels and pants were a perfect match. The dramatic and rebellious print combined with structure is what makes the pants an impeccable masterpiece.
Pick the right accessories
I’m not a crazy accessories junkie because I know that having a few of the right pieces is all that matters. That’s always a pair of sunglasses, an understated bag, and a great attitude. I also keep my jewelry minimal and layered because I never want them to take away from my outfit. So what you see here is my model example for accessorizing right.
