So many women wear black (or grey or navy or brown) trousers to the office, but it can become such a uniform it becomes dull and boring. Today I thought I’d share some ideas on styling your black pants with a little more panache.
- You can create a dramatic and high contrast look with an achromatic colour scheme (yes black and white is achromatic not monochromatic).
- Create an analogous colour scheme (that’s one where the colours are next to each other – so blue, teal and green as in this picture) to add colour in a subtle but sophisticated way.
- Become inspired by the Breton stripe and create your own version of French flair with a striped tee and a navy blazer. Don’t forget the scarf for that extra spice.
You can easily take any of these inspirations and make them more or less dressy depending on your work dress code.
