FIVE WAYS TO WEAR … CROPPED BLACK PANTS

 An essential in any wardrobe,  classic black pants are your passport to effortless chic

EVERY woman should have a pair of smart black dress pants in her wardrobe. If not black, then maybe in navy or grey.

I have several pairs in a variety of styles and fabrics ... a couple are longer and reserved specifically for heels, there's wide-legged, high-waisted, relaxed-style, tuxedo-style dinner pants (which are part of a suit) and others are cropped. Fabrics include silk, stretch wool, linen and mechanical stretch.

The pants here are a classic flat-front, stretch cotton sateen from Country Road. I've had them for a couple of seasons and wear them regularly.
