My go-to color for dress pants has been black ever since I graduated from college and started working back in 2008. After three years of wearing the somber color I have finally stopped wearing black dress pants to the office.

I have replaced them with two pairs of navy blue and a pair of grey trousers. All three have a tailored fit and are flat front. For the grey one I opted to add 1⅝ inch cuffs. They all sit right on top of the shoe to avoid fabric bunching up and to show off the shoes I wear. And the butterscotch shoes I purchased a few weeks back look great with both colors.

That’s another new year’s resolution gladly accomplished.
