Stick to the Basics


I mentioned in a previous post the importance of good basics, and I want to take a minute to share my pick for the all around best trousers.  Not only are these pants flattering on just about everyone, come in multiple colors, sizes, and inseams, but also the quality is phenomenal.  I bought my first pair of these pants, the “Editor Pant” from Express ($59.50), in 2003.  I wear them about once a week…and I still have my first pair from SIX years ago.  What’s even better is that they are currently buy one, get one 50% off (along with a lot of other great basic items).  If you don’t have a great pair of black trousers, invest now…they are a must-have staple that will take you through many seasons.

Do you have a great pair of black trousers? If so, where did you get them? Let me know in the comments, or send me an email,
