What to Wear With Black Pants

We all know the color black goes with everything, but the key to making black sing is how you wear it. We teamed up with our Head Stylist Jackie Groffman to give you an easy breakdown of what to wear with black pants for men and women.

Dress Them Up or Down

If you’re wondering how to wear black pants — let’s start with the basics. Black is possibly the easiest of all the colors to wear. Why? Because you don’t have to worry about matching, you can layer it with anything, it works for every season and it never looks out of place.

Jackie recommends dressing up a black Easy Khaki with our Washed Poplin Shirt. Or you can keep things ultra-comfy by pairing a Comfort Knit Chino with the Original Crewneck Sweatshirt. And we've got plenty of other men’s tops and shirts that look great with black.

Take Them Everywhere

The great thing about black pants is how easy it is to go totally neutral or pair them with some bright color. And our women’s tops aren’t just designed to go where the day takes you — they all look good with black.

“Our black pants are super versatile. Not only does black always look great around the office, but it can take you wherever your day goes next – from happy hour to events to dinner with loved ones.”

Wearing Your Black Pants

“Since black in theory goes with any and all colors, it easily leans into a wide range of wearing occasions. When you start with a versatile base color, the rest of the outfit can be built for anything.” 

The best part about wearing black pants is that whether you’re wearing cargos, khakis or chinos, they’ll never go out of style. They’re not only here to stay — we make them better than ever and in ways that reduce our impact. 

When It Comes to Shoes

“Material, color, and tonality make a big difference. Stick to neutral colors, like whites, grays, and blacks – small pops of color work too, but anchor everything in neutrals.”

Chances are you already own shoes that look great with black, but if you’re itching for more, we have plenty of men's shoes that get the job done.
