WIW: Black pants outfit based on #1

Based on Angies blog ideas of ways to wear black pants for business, I tried this one (#1) casually with black jeans. I used a black and white dotty scarf for the blouse, snake booties and clutch bag. Maybe not for business, but does this work?

    I think it would work for business :) The jeans look more like trousers to me, and I'd be happy to see snake boots in the office for a change!

    Suntiger, the jeans are a black Ponte fabric in a jean style, so not denim. I enjoyed wearing these booties with the black outfit and pattern mix with the scarf.

    Nicely done, Joy! The snake boots really freshen this look, and they bookend with your hair.

    Katerina, thank you. Most of my life I could not wear black but the grey/white hair makes the color possible
    Thank you , Taylor and Bonnie. The dotty scarf is a favorite and gets lots of wear.
    Angie, I am thrilled that you approve this outfit.
    Firecracker, these boots are a favorite and go with about everything in my wardrobe..

    I think it works and the metallic boots are delicious. I’d love to see a lighter top under the scarf for a bit more contrast.

  • kellygirl replied 2 days ago

    Très chic, Joy! This looks fab!

  • Joy replied 2 days ago

    Thank you, Opaline, Brooklyn and kellygirl. A lighter scarf would bring more light and contrast to the outfit. At first I grabbed a scarf that is white with black dots but the one I am wearing was chosen because it reminded me more of the polkadot blouse in Angie's example. I suspect my best scarf here would be a white/ black/ grey chiffon It is lighter overall but would still pattern mix with the shoes.
