Wardrobe Essential: Black Dress Pants

Why you need them: Black dress pants are so versatile and will match practically everything in your wardrobe.

How to Wear: The right pair of pants can be dressed up or down, depending on what you pair with them.

  • For a professional look, wear your dress pants with a matching blazer and crisp white blouse; the perfect look for a corporate interview.
  • Go casual by wearing a shirt and cardigan; great for a casual day at the office or lunch with friends.
  • Dress up with a trendy blouse, strappy sandals, and stylish accessories for an evening out with friends.

Purchasing Tips: If you want a pair of pants that you can wear with many items you already have in your closet, it is best to buy black. Brown or navy are also good colors and will match many things.

When buying dress pants, be sure they are comfortable and you are able to freely move around without having them feel tight. For a comfortable fit, buy trousers with stretch. The built-in stretch will make the fabric move with you.

Be sure to walk around, sit, and bend down to see how they feel. Make sure they don’t feel tight or pull at the knees when you kneel down.
