The Perfect Black Pant

Happy Tuesday ladies! I am always on the lookout for the perfect black pant, and I think I have found them. While I don’t work outside the home, I do need dress pants.

Black pants are a staple piece in my wardrobe, so I will spend a little more money on them. These don’t go out of style, and if they’re a quality piece, they should last for years.

The Perfect Black Pant

These are JCrew black pants, and I purchased them from Nordstrom. They’re stylish and flattering for every season. They’re cropped (and not too skinny), higher-waisted, and have perfectly positioned pockets.

The Perfect Black PantI’m a huge fan of Sam Edelman shoes, and these nude pumps have the perfect heel height with a scalloped strap. If you don’t want to spend this much on a heel, Target has some adorable heels and a better price point. These are a great option.

The Perfect Black PantThis time of year I like to pop a lot of colors. After a cold, dreary winter (and spring), I need color people! This blouse also comes in plus size.

The Perfect Black Pant My earrings are 40% off, and I wear these all the time, have you noticed?

  1. I think you’re right Cyndi. Black pants are the go-to for so many women especially for dressing up if they don’t wear skirts anymore. Since I grew up with a mom who wore dresses & skirts all the time (and still does even in her 80’s), I don’t wear these as much, but of course I have a pair, just in case!!!
    That color of top looks gorgeous on you!!
    And kindness is what everyone should choose–it makes the world a better place!!

  2. Beautiful outfit! I loved all the colors in your spring series. Thank you for reviewing the best basics, too – I’m looking for dress pants!

  3. Super cute outfit! I love a good pair of black pants for any season.
    Congrats on the upcoming move – we are moving into a new home at the end of the month and are super excited!!
    Happy Packing-

  4. I’m craving color, too, Cyndi! I saw that neons are making a comeback this Spring! Neon green is one of my favorites. I have about 5 different gel polishes that I rotate— and they are all various shades of nude! That way , I dont have to change my nail color when I change outfits. Lol..

  5. the scripture today is great. i am always curious about what was going on at the time Paul wrote some of these letters…
    is there a good black pant that is all of this BUT not cropped ? my height is all in long legs and i am always battling the “high-water” syndrome.

    thank you

  6. Well shoot, I just wore a brand new pair of Julie fit black pants from Loft or I would try these. Pedicures with Courtney will be fun! I took my daughter over spring break and we got our fingers done. Cyndi, have you tried the dipped (SNS) polish yet? I went in back in October to get gel on my nails before our trip to Hawaii. The girl talked me into trying the dipped and I LOVE IT! According to her it’s better for your nails AND it DOES NOT PEEL the way gel will. I think she typically does just 2 coats on most people but I get 3 because I was cracking them with 2. I go a month in between manicures. (granted they really need to be done after 3 weeks, but I stretch it). Anyway, you might really like it. Enjoy your day! XO

  7. Love the color top and I have just started to get used to wearing black pants as I don’t work outside the home and have very little use for them but I am finding out they are a true staple to have for certain occasions … Congratulations on your new home so excited for you both… enjoy your pedicure 😀

  8. Love the entire post today,Cyndi. The outfit is classy, fun, and looks wonderful. And the BFH was awesome. It’s amazing what a kind gesture or well chosen words can to do to minister to anhurting heart. Thank you! Enjoy Les Miz… hope you post a pic or two. 👍🏻😉And praying for Courtney.My sweet daughter in law is due July 10. LOVE those grand babies!!

  9. Love this look! Classic black pants with that pretty pop of pink! Gonna have to get that top!

    Have fun getting your manicures.

  10. My colleagues and I (all teachers) joke about our “uniform” of black pants. It’s just too easy to pair them with any top and go. My favorite combination is black with royal blue. I have a friend who looks beautiful in black and pink. I look forward to your devotional each day. God bless.

  11. This is a great work outfit! I love Sam Edleman shoes too! They are a little more but they really last and I’d rather buy 1 really good pair that is comfortable like Sam’s are than 2 pr that hurt my feet and fall apart. When my feet hurt, everything hurts! I’d love to see you talk about colors! I am very fair skinned so the shade of pink matters for me (and peach is pretty much out!). The Hot pink definitely suits you!

  12. Everything about this outfit is perfect! That top is lovely with the nipped in waist. The cropped black pants, the nude heels all come together beautifully.
    You mentioned packing. Did you find a house?

  13. Love the pop of color in the top. We all need some cheering up this winter/ spring. Have fun getting pedicures with your daughter. Good luck packing and moving. God bless. 😃

  14. Great outfit. I have a go to black pair of pants also and couldn’t imagine not having them in my closet to go to when I’m not sure what to wear. Can pair them with almost any top. Love the bright pink color you pair yours with.

    Congrats on the new home and the move soon. I moved into my dream retirement home about 6 years ago and still love it. Will be here forever.

  15. Great outfit Cyndi – love the pop of color and you look so good in pink! Good luck with your move – hope everything goes well.

  16. Very pretty outfit. I’m really liking your spring looks! That Boden shirt a few days ago looked especially good too 🙂

    And kindness . . . good reminder

  17. Love this outfit Cyndi. Perfect for work and church. I didn’t know you could wear nude shoes with black pants. I am super excited about learning this. I’ve always thought I had to wear dark shoes with dark bottoms. Thanks!

  18. Hey – I love this look! Pink and black are one of my favorite combinations in any season. By the way, the pink and gray outfit you posted last week would be perfect for work- at least for me. I bought the pink pants but the gray tops were already out by the time I got around to ordering the next day . I plan to order this hot pink top and I bought the pink earrings over the weekend . 😉

  19. Cyndi, I love this top! I’m just not sure if I should order a small or x small. I wear a size 6. My but is a 36c. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks, Tammy

  20. Sorry, I’m just opening my mail,
    I love the combo colors you chose.
    They look great together and I’m
    with you, we need color this time of year!!!!!!

  21. Love your posts – you are an inspiration to me and many other women, no longer in our twenties! This whole look is fabulous! Which bracelet and watch are you wearing ? It really completes your super style!!!

  22. I love gel polish too! I hear that you should give you nails a break from the gel after a few manicures. Do you wear gel polish all the time? Do you wear it on your toes too?
