Today’s black pants look is a little bit of a cheat – they have a gold brocade print that definitely separates them from basic black pants.
When I bought these pants, I knew that I wanted to think of ways to wear them for day as well as evening. As much as I love evening fashion, realistically, I spend much more of my life in work and casual clothes. To get more use value out of these pants, I have been brainstorming some ideas of how to make these pants work-appropriate.

This outfit is different than looks I would normally pick, and I admit
it was a little outside of my comfort zone. I don’t wear a ton of
sweaters, and pairing the preppier top half with the brocade pants was a
pairing I wouldn’t normally consider.

In the end though, I loved this outfit and felt great in it all day. The crew neck sweater in a pretty color layered over the button down shirt gives the pants a much more casual feel, while the classic black pumps keep the outfit professional.
All in all, I was quite happy with this look.
