The saying less is more is a statement that I try to follow through all parts of my life. Whether it comes to trying to not eat a large pizza alone or attempting to do a smokey eye and it looks like I am part of the Walking Dead zombie cast.

This especially comes more into play in terms of my wardrobe. I definitely would not classify myself as a minimalist, but I do try to keep a routine of when I purchase a new dress, accessory, or shoe that means that one or more needs to filter out. Not just putting it in a bin and up to the attic it goes more like consigning them, selling on Poshmark, or donating to an amazing cause like Dress for Success. As we all know life can get in the way sometimes of this what feels like an amazing routine so I have been getting into the mode of purchasing pieces that have a unique touch, but can be paired with more than just one item in my closet.
That is where these black ankle pants from New York and Co. comes into play! What I love about this pant is that it picks up so many colors from the detail in the calf of red, white, blue, green, and pink that it can pair perfect with your basic white tee or dressed up with a red blouse like I have pictured! Even if your wardrobe has more of a neuteral color scheme and you want to turn it up a notch without going too far outside your comfort zone this is perfect for you. So I don’t think I will be taking this pant out of the rotation any time soon! Keep scrolling to check out these other pieces that I spotted online that are classic looks with a bit of unique detail for full versatility.
