A good pair of black pants is essential to a wardrobe. Surprisingly I have not owned a pair in many years…..until now. I have black jeans, tight black pants and faux black leather leggings. All suitable for different occasions but I really needed a standard classic pair of black pants that I could wear to work, weekend functions and dress up or down if needed. This pair of Vince wool pants fits the bill perfectly. They are slim but not too tight, ankle length but not too short for heels and made out of a wool blend so they wrinkle less and fall nicely. I decided to wear them with my new Rag & Bone sweater that I scooped up on sale recently and when paired with my classic J.Crew pumps – it was the perfect casual yet work appropriate outfit. I have not had a chance to wear my Sophie Hulme purse since the summer and thought this outfit was the perfect excuse to bring it back. There is nothing like a bright, vibrant bag to help break up a sea of gray and black. And because this sweater is so insanely warm, I was able to leave my big puffer coat at home and just go with a lighter wool coat. Any chance I have to move away from the puffer I take it. A step away from the puffer is one step closer to summer. (The lies I tell myself.)
