5 Ways to Style Black Pants for Work

When it comes to work wear you can never go wrong with a classic black pant! While I love to mix color into a work wardrobe, you can also have fun with a classic piece like a black pant. In order to make your black pants feel a little more summery for work, opt for a cropped, wide-leg option! This look shows a little more ankle, while still maintaining a very professional feel. To show you just how versatile a piece like this can be, below you’ll find 5 ways to style black pants for work!

The first option is to keep it simple and pair your cropped wide leg black pants with a fun top. I personally love this flutter sleeve option because it’s playful and fun! The color adds a nice pop that makes the whole look feel like summer. I’m wearing a size extra small in the top and extra small, petite in the pants. The pants have a natural oversized feel to them, so if you’re in between you can size down.

If you have a big meeting or are going for a more professional look, this neutral outfit would be perfect. Here I’ve paired the sweater tank with a white linen blazer and added my favorite braided heels. This is one of those looks that could easily go from work to weekend by trading out the black pants for distressed mom jeans. Check out this look for inspiration.

This next look would be perfect for all my teacher friends! You can easily swap the heels for flats if you’re going to be on your feet all day. If you need to cover your shoulders, add the white blazer from above or a great neutral cardigan like THIS ONE fro Target!

If you’re wanting to add a fun pop of color to your work look, I highly recommend this blazer. I’ve worn this one a few different ways since picking it up and have received so many compliments. I love that it’s light weight for summer, but also keeps its structure. You could easily throw this same blazer over a dress or pair with shorts and a tank for a girls night out.

TOP | PANTS | HEELS | HANDBAG (look for less)

For our last way to style black pants for work, I’ve paired a classic button down and added a quilted handbag to round out the look! This black bag is a vintage designer find. I’ve linked a similar, budget friendly option above! This way you can achieve the Loverly Grey look for less.

In case you are a home decor fan and are loving the background of these pictures, you can shop Loverly Grey’s foyer HERE. I recently updated this space and I’m so happy I did. This console is beautiful and provides a little more storage. It fills the space nicely while also providing function. I finally found a mirror that was large enough and was able to pull together a few items from around the house to make it feel put together.
