Why You Need to Invest in a Staple Black Pant

Black pants are definitely our go-to for every occasion, so here are five reasons why you need to invest ASAP.

1. Pair easily with any top
There's always days when we can’t think of what to wear. We think starting out with a black pant can instantly simplify the outfit pairing process. We find ourselves coupling black pants with either a basic tee, button up shirt or a flattering wrap top. We're all about making an outfit look as effortless as possible, and the black pant doesn’t require much effort at all.

2. Extra styles add variety
We know once you find that perfect black pant it can be hard to stray away, unless of course it’s adopting another style into your wardrobe. Having an additional style can ensure for outfit versatility. Our current favourites are a wide leg pant for a loose and breathable fit, or a sophisticated slim trouser for a classic and refined look.

3. Suitable for Any Occasion 

Ultimately we think it's the versatility of a black pant that makes them a wardrobe must have. We're always reaching for them in any occasion, as there’s no rules on how or where to wear them. There was once a view that black pants fall under the stereotypical 'workwear' uniform, but this view has well and truly shifted as we’ve seen black pants become a staple for both weekend and occasional wear. Find your perfect cami top layered with a blazer and you're good to go anywhere.

4. The easiest colour to work with

Even though we are strong believers in a minimalists colour pallet of black, white and grey, we are known for adding more neutral tones such as navy, khaki and rust. However, we’re big fans of the black with black look - and we always say there's no such thing as too much black.

5. Enhanced with subtle details
One element to a good black pant can be extra detailing. Think fabrics such as silk, leather, contrasting stitching, additional flares and drawstring ties. We find by wearing pants with extra detailing can help elevate a basic staple to an outfit necessity.
