Work Wear Staple: The Black Trouser

There is nothing more ubiquitous in corporate fashion than the black trouser.  It’s a closet staple and the easy answer for any 9-to-5 look (and then some).  I’m always on the hunt for a comfortable pair that has FRONT POCKETS.  Just because we carry purses, doesn’t mean that women have no use for pockets.  Give me the pockets!

Ok. Rant over.  Sorry.

I immediately fell in love with this pair from & Other Stories.  I love the classic but contemporary feel – little high waisted, straight cut with a cropped length.  For this look, I tucked in a flutter-sleeved floral blouse for a touch of femininity against the fairly structured trouser.  Pairing it with with gray suede pumps, instead of the more obvious black, picks up on the subtle gray lines in the blouse and lightens the overall look for spring.  To top it off, I wore a streamlined statement earring, that’s perfect for work.

Seriously though, go.  Get those pants.
