The thought process behind this outfit:
First off, I want to thank you guys for your comments on my previous post. They were so helpful and insightful and actually inspired this outfit! I’ve been thinking about the month long remix challenge a lot this week and what you guys wrote got me thinking about basing outfits around more classic pieces, case in point, these slim black pants. As much as I love my slouchy boyfriend jeans, I know that most people can’t wear them to work and mostly just wear them around the house or on the weekend. So that said, I decided to pull my favorite black cigarette pants out of my closet and create an outfit around them.
I could have chosen to put on a silky shirt and a blazer, but it felt a bit too buttoned up for me on this particular day, so instead I grabbed my trusty chambray button down, which helped bring a slightly more casual feel to the look, and my new favorite scarf. I played off the colors in the scarf to help me decide on which jacket, hat and bag to wear and before I knew it, I was full dressed!
What do you guys think, do you like this look?
How do you style your black pants?
Hat: Rag & Bone / Sunglasses: Karen Walker / Scarf: Aldo (also LOVE this one) / Jacket: IRO (mine isn’t available anymore, but here is a similar, super affordable one on sale at ASOS) / Shirt: J.Crew / Pants: Zara (mine are old, but here is a similiar pair) / Heels: Schutz (mine are sold out, but here is a darker grey version) / Bag: Proenza Schouler
P.S. To be honest with you, I didn’t actually wear these shoes out in this crazy weather. I actually wore these short little UGG boots, but these heels are what I would wear if there wasn’t ice and snow on the ground. :)
