Work Wear Wednesday: The Perfect Black Dress Pants for Work

This post contains affiliate links + gifted items.

Black dress pants are a wardrobe staple. If you only have two pairs of pants in your closet, one pair should be a good pair of jeans and the other pair should be a smart pair of black dress pants. This is the perfect pair of black dress pants for work.

When looking for black dress pants, you’re looking for the Goldilocks pair–you know, not too long, not too short. You want a pair that hits right at the ankles. This means you may need to order a petite or tall size for it to hit where you need it to. And they should be skinny or straight legged. This pair of black dress pants from Loft is perfect! The fabric is crisp and the silhouette is nice.

I paired it with a button-up and pretty sweater. I now need all of my sweaters with a scallop hem, okay? Thanks. This look allows you to stay warm yet look professional, and the blush color says that winter isn’t here to stay (as does the straw bag).

The mules are from Bearpaw. They come in 3 colors, and are warm and comfortable. They have a sherpa lining:) You can grab them for under $30 when you use my Bearpaw promo code TIFFANY20 for 20% off (U.S. only).
