Black Pants From Work To Play

I’ve had quite a few requests to style a workwear look, so today is all about THE perfect black trousers you can wear from work to play. When I think of brands that offer beautiful workwear that makes you feel feminine and gorgeous, Banana Republic is at the top of the list. They carry such an array of options, from workwear to casual weekend styles, and always top-notch quality. You can never go wrong reaching for a textured top, go-to black pants (these are SO flattering) and a fabulous pair of strappy heels, so today I am thrilled to partner with Banana Republic and spill the details on this chic, ready-for-the-office look!

Psst…Banana Republic is running a major 40% off sale right now! Yep, that means my entire look is on MAJOR markdown. Use code BRSURPRISE at checkout, yay!

Incredibly flattering/slimming and super comfortable, too (I’m all about pants with some stretch!). They look great dressed up with a pretty bow-front blouse (gah, this one is darling! Wearing size XS) or dressed down with an off shoulder ruffled top (same textured fabric as the one I have on in this post…how cute is this?!). The Sloan-Fit pants run big, so order a full size down than your regular size!

Don’t forget, Banana Republic is having a major sale right now, so you can score a TON of new pieces for 40% off! Use code BRSURPRISE at checkout – happy shopping! XO

**Special shoutout to my Pops for snapping these photos! He was a gem and through the rain/shine/heat/humidity (no really…Austin weather is completely crazy this week) he stuck with me. Thanks, Dad! 🙂

    I love these pants and that blouse! Definitely thinking I need to add both of these to my work wardrobe. And thanks for sharing the sizing! Super helpful!

    xo, Shelby

  • Love the outfit, very cute. Looks very comfortable as well. You can never go wrong with a pair of cute black pants. I also love those sunglasses you were wearing, went well with the outfit. The pictures came out great!!! Thank you for sharing!!!

    I have this weird office where it’s very casual. Still not somewhere you’re going to wear shorts or a romper or anything ripped but most sneakers are pretty acceptable as are blue jeans. On the flip side dress pants like this – which I own a few pairs of from previous jobs – are seen as far too dressy. It’s hard to style looks that are office appropriate but still casual for the environment. Do you have any suggestions?

  • Amanda says:

    Gorgeous look! I love the style of black pant and it’s super comfy. They are the most comfortable pants I have ever owned. These are the best outfits to make a perfect combination for work and casual day out. Thanks for sharing.
