Today, we are excited to bring you 5 black pant outfits to try this week at the office. Each look can likely be styled with chic pieces you already have in your closet, too!
With some of us heading back to the office soon, today we wanted to share with you all a few ways to style a classic pair of black pants this week and beyond.
For these 5 black pant outfits, we wanted to choose pieces you likely already have in your closet for ease. Not only are these looks versatile and classic, but also 5 cute outfit ideas that will last all season.
There are so many different ways to style a great pair of black dress pants, but we also wanted to share with you all a number of outfit ideas with black pants that can be styled casually and more formally for the office.
All of the looks below are styled with a more skinny black pant or trouser we purcahsed from Margaret M Canada. However, we think these looks would also be great paired with a more wide or straight leg trouser, as well. Because we are also petite, below, we are sharing out favorite places to buy black pants and trousers.
What we love about these Margaret M trousers is they are made with a heavier stretch material that makes them fitting for cute outfit for the weekend, but also nice enough for a business casual look for the office. We have worn them all over town – from running errands on the weekend to traveling to Bali. They are incredibly comfortable and versatile.
We would love to know which black pant outfit is your favorite!
BLACK PANTS LOOK 1: A PATTERNED BLAZER
If you’re looking for great business casual black pants outfit, pair your trousers with a classic patterened blazer. I purcahsed this blazer last year from Zara and have worn it a number of different ways. I love the black and white tweed style with gold buttons. There are a ton of great options available that will take your black pants outfit well into Fall and Winter.

BLACK PANTS LOOK 2: A WHITE TOP & STATEMENT HEELS
If you have been following the blog or on Instagram you know how much we love these red statement heels. They tie every cute outfit together and really make black trousers or a skirt pop. And, who can resist a little extra bling?
If you’d like to pair your black trousers with a classic white top, I recommend an option with a bit more detail. I love the white top with a bow below! So cute for Spring and Summer!
If you’d prefer a more causual look, I might suggest a classic white t-shirt with a denim jacket and white sneakers. Paired with black pants, you now have yourself a cute, causal look for Friday at the office or brunch with the girls.

BLACK PANTS LOOK 2: A LONG CARDIGAN
When we shared these 5 black pant outfits on Instagram, this look was one of your favorites. And, I couldn’t agree more. I wore these black pants with this long cardigan for a casual New Years Eve outfit this past winter and got a number of compliments.
And, while this look is more fitting for the cooler months, you can easily pull off this cute outfit together with a long cardigan and sandals for a look more appropriate for the warmer months, too. I would recommend a light linen cardigan and cute flip flops or short heeled sandals.
These black pants can easilly be coordianted for a business casual look or a cute casual look.

BLACK PANTS LOOK 2: A BLACK BLAZER & BLOUSE
While I am not normally one to style an all-black look (or mostly black anyways), styling these black pants with an oversized black blazer, colorblock heels and a statement blouse is one of my favorites.
While we’re on the subject of black blazers, if you have not yet in vested in one, do that before anything else. A classic black blazer is a closet staple you will not want to go without much longer. I personally love the look of an oversized blazer such as this one from Zara.

WHERE TO BUY THE BEST BLACK PANTS
If you’re unsure where to start shopping for black pants and trousers, here are just a few of my favorites.
- ATHLETA – shopping Athleta for a great pair of black pants may been like an interesting option, but hear me out. I have been an avid shopper at Athleta for some time now. Their collection offers a wide selection of black pants that are fitting for both the office and weekend. I can take my Athleta pants from caual office looks to a casual weekend look quickly and easily.
- BANANA REPUBLIC – What I love about shopping Banana Republic for a pair of black pants or trousers is they offer shapes and styles that are fitting for some many body types. They offer a selection of wide leg pants, cropped, curvy styles, petite, tall and misses fits. From a sizing perspective, I typically purchase a 2P in a curvy fit.
- J.CREW – Similar to Banana Republic, I love J.Crew for the fit of their pants and because they offer a petite options. For sizing, I normally buy a 2P from J.Crew.
