Cigarette pants are a definite must-have for the fall season. Not only can they be accessorized in tons of different ways, but they also have a classic and flattering shape. As with most items in my wardrobe, these pants can go from work to play. Here is some style inspiration to guide you into the wonderful world of cigarette pants!!
Office Appropriate Cigarette Pants
The easiest way to wear these pants is to the office. All you have to do is literally throw on a t-shirt and blazer, and you are ready to go. Add an elegant bag and a pair of heels to the mix for a more formal affair.
Mel's Style Tip: These bottoms should be ankle length, so stay away from going too short or too long. Jane's corporate chic look is my personal favorite way to wear these pants.

Casual-Chic Cigarette Pants
You may remember Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face. If not, all you need to know is that she made fashion history in her iconic scene where she dances around in an all-black ensemble that included cigarette pants and ballet flats. For those of you who love a chic and comfortable lifestyle, this look is for you. With a little addition of black and white stripes and a fab bag, Jessie Kass is definitely channeling her inner Audrey!!

Elegant Cigarette Pants
I typically avoid wearing pants to formal occasions, but Jane sure does make it work!! Her cigarette pants make for a great base piece, while the feminine lace top and accessories provide balance for an evening out.
Mel's Style Tip: For evening, always pair these slim fit bottoms with heels and a cool clutch.
