Different Black Pants

As I was scrolling through my Instagram recently, I noticed I wear A LOT of black jeans. This is mostly because I can’t wear regular “jean” jeans to work and colored jeans, AKA black jeans, are considered “slacks.” So, when I was getting dressed this morning I thought I’d try something different. I bought these track pant-esque slacks from H&M in late January. I thought they were perfect because they aren’t tight, but are still form fitting, and  they are comfortable enough to sit on the floor in. I like to look nice at work, but since I teach 6 years old, I don’t like to feel stuffy or over dressed. To dress these down some, I threw on an basic white t-shirt and some flat sandals. To re-wear this look later I can switch it up with a graphic tee or slightly looser fitting tank top to stay casual and cool in the warmer temps to come.

***These slim, but loose fitting pants really streamline your leg and the stripe down the side makes your legs appear narrower!

If your office is not as casual as mine LOL you can dress these pants up with a light material oxford and some open toed (or close toed) heels. I have my shirt sloppy tucked, but it works fine to do a full front tuck also.

***I WOULD suggest wearing some kind of heel or height with these pants to make your legs look longer. I tried rocking them with sneakers or vans at first and ended up feeling frumpy.
