Yes, I had to (☺).

A pair of black dress pants (or trousers) screams practicality and professionalism on one hand, and pizzazz and party on the other. Either way, the right pair styled properly can depict power, boldness, sophistication, edginess and sexiness, all at the same time. A pair of pants is an example of one of the perfect wardrobe staples that transitions from day to night, work to outing.

As a practicing lawyer, I’m all about transitional pieces and a pair of black pants is a key investment, as you can recreate various outfits to suit your occasion. Imagine you have a dinner, tête-à-tête, gallery viewing, or even drinks after work and you can’t or don’t want to have to dash home to change… a pair of black dress pants (trousers) is the ideal wardrobe choice.

The key styling tip is to use accessories to glamourize your outfit as accessories help to elevate your look from basic to chic.

Can you tell that I really like lace? 😊

Rose gold and black are a perfect match.

This look works as the ideal transitional look because it balances the aesthetics of ‘The Suit vs. Accessories’.

Simply add a jacket, swap the dressy sandals for a pair Mary Jane pumps, wear subtle jewelry and voila – you’re ready for work!

The effect of a pantsuit directly transforms you into a ‘boss lady’, it’s inevitable. Even I felt the ‘power of the suit’ during my shoot.

This look seamlessly blends the ‘sine qua non’ for day at the office, when I don’t have to appear in court (trousers are forbidden 😲) and night-glamour, for social events.
