Photographed by Geordy Pearson, Designed by Ly Ngo.As a blogger and social-media editor, Amy Marietta of Viviere Bella is always on-the-go. Naturally, her outfits reflect just that — printed pants that go from day to night, crop tops that work for happy hour with clients, and as always, perfectly broken-in kicks. But just because the 21-year-old California native isn't chained to an office for the 9-to-5 grind that doesn't mean she can't rock a work-appropriate look like the best of 'em. In fact, it's quite the opposite.
While traditional trousers are usually ill-fitting and only relegated to the office, LOFT's new pants are completely different. From design tricks that create longer legs and thinner-looking thighs to a tummy-flattening waistband, the pants are serious game-changers. Of course, you'd have to see it to believe it, and that's why our friends at LOFT tasked Marietta to style its new and improved pant three different ways for work, play, and everything in between. Naturally, we expected nothing less than stellar from the style guru, but what we didn't expect was, well, you'll see.
Read on to find out how Marietta remixed one pair of cobalt pants three different ways — trust, you'll definitely want to steal these looks.

So, tell us about these three looks.
"For the work look, I went very classic-chic with the cream button-down blouse and statement necklace. The look is simple, but the color combination makes it pop in a sophisticated manner. The night look was very bohemian and fun. Do you have any idea how many compliments you would receive for wearing this scarf around your head as a headband? Just trust me on this one. I like to keep my staple pieces simple, but then accessorize them with really fun items. You don’t want to have too much going on, so this black silk top was perfect to pair with the pop of bright-blue pants. And, for the [weekend outfit], I decided to funk up the look with some Chucks. Let’s be honest, Chucks with trousers look awesome."

Most women try to avoid bright colors, but you gravitate toward them. What made you pick this cobalt shade?
"This color blue is absolutely perfect, because you can wear it day to night, and it’s just a beautiful color in general. I wouldn’t mind painting one of my walls this color actually…Yeah, I wouldn’t mind staring at it every single day. The pants are obviously a very vibrant color, so they tend to steal the show, but it is easy to dress them down as well to make them casual."

We love that these pants work so well for three different occasions, what do you love most about them?
"I tended to steer clear of these pants before, because they seemed too formal and only appropriate for work. But when you create the perfect fit and have a selection of vibrant colors, it’s a whole new ball game. If we’re being completely honest, I love the butt. Most trousers make your butt look flat in them but these fit perfectly and keep your butt looking perky. The overall fit is exceptionally figure-flattering."
