Black pants are slimming, classic, fun and a fashion staple. What’s not to like? You can pair them with a blouse and be interview-ready. You can pair them with an oversized sweater and be comfortable. Or you can pair them with a white tee and a neutral cardigan like this Fashionista and look classy, professional and sophisticated all at the same time.
Could she be going on an interview? Yes. Could she be going to class? Yes. Could she be going on a date? Yes. Versatility is a beautiful thing, and this Fashionista got it just right.
What I love about this outfit is that she took three basic pieces and created a flexible and gorgeous ensemble. The tailored black pants are the staple. A basic white tee is all she needed on top, under that gorgeous tan speckled cardigan. It’s not quite “oversized,” but it also isn’t too form fitting either. After slipping on some brown Mary Jane shoes and a geometric necklace, she was set. Oh wait, don’t forget the gorgeous black tote she has on her shoulder!
Polyvore has a wide selection of tailored black pants, though I love this Fashionista’s choice to buy them in capris style. A white tee can be found anywhere, but a similar cardigan (sans speckled design) can be hunted down at your local Target (for only $20 too!). The black tote can also be found in a variety of shops, but Forever 21 has a phenomenal Buckled Camera Bag I’m currently obsessed with. Urban Outfitters offers a slue of geometric jewelry, which is peach pit popularity right now (see Thread editor’s Top 5 pick of geometric gems).
As I said before, the beauty of this outfit is that, like the eight-way camisole, it can be sported in eight (or more) scenarios and look fantastic each and every time. Buying outfits that can be worn to multiple events and venues is a wise and strategic move. It will not only save you some bucks, but it will also make you feel like you’re actually getting full use out of the clothes you buy.
This Fashionista looks confident and professional, but her outfit could lead her just about anywhere. Thanks to those gorgeous slacks, she’s sophisticated, but not overdressed. They make the outfit. Thank you to the tailored black pant, a true iconic staple.
