    not so boring black

    You may have seen my post on how to make wearing all black more fun, so you know this is a topic close to my heart. Though it’s a classic look (and one that is super chic!) it can also be easy to get lost in all that dark clothing. I spent years in retail…

    Brrrr it’s cold out there! I’ve been freezing my butt off through this unusual cold snap. Sartorially, there is nothing harder than looking put together when it’s snowing. The past few weeks I have been rocking my oh-so-stylish massive men’s down jacket on the daily and definitely not looking my best. Hopefully things have taken…

    what to wear on valentine’s day

    I think Valentines was a bigger deal when I was single. Back then it was usually a night out with my other unattached friends and a few questionable choices in the name of being young, wild and free. Nowadays, it pretty much just means my boyfriend and I have an excuse to go out for…

    Mock Neck

             You know I love my turtlenecks, but there is a certain amount of fussing around that goes with them. Is the cowl folded over right? Does this look like a neck brace? That kind of thing. No such problems with a mock neck top like this! Although the last time I wore…

    knit culottes

             I think I found something more comfortable than sweats…these knitted culottes are amazing. I keep referring to them as “leg sweaters” which maybe isn’t the most flattering but is pretty accurate. They may be cropped, but since they’re made of merino wool they are still nice and cozy. My one word of advice…

    over the knee boots

                I finally found a good looking + affordable pair of over the knee boots! They aren’t anything fancy (faux suede from Forever 21) but they were a bargain and definitely do the trick. I’ve lusted after a pair like this for years but could never stomach the cost and always had…

    looking back on 2015

    What a  year it has been! January marks 1 year on pantsthatsuck, and I thought I would take this moment to look back through some of the outfits I’ve featured in that time. It’s a strange and wonderful thing to have a catalogue of pretty much everything you wore for 365 days, and to be…

          I know most of you probably have a dress picked out for tonight, but if you’re like me and still on the fence about what to wear, here’s another idea. Instead of going for a girly, glamorous look, why not create a more relaxed menswear inspired outfit to dance the night away in?…

    dressing down

          More and more I have been drawn to comfort first while I’m getting dressed. This time of year being the busiest for me at work, on days off I just want to snuggle up on the couch and my clothes need to accommodate that. I’ve been putting on a ton of cozy knits,…

    a simple look for the holidays you probably already own

     This time of year can lead to last minute invitations, multiple family events and lot of parties. It helps to have a few easy looks to fall back on for the holidays, particularly if you can create them with items you already have in your closet. Or maybe ones you got for Christmas/bought on Boxing…
