Life, liberty, and the pursuit of the perfect pants

In the spirit of Independence Day, we celebrate a wardrobe that fits and flatters our bodies—a wardrobe not chock full of fads and trends, but of well-constructed garments designed to test the fashionable sands of time. Let freedom ring in our Shannon classic black pants—a quintessential, feminine-cut pair that will give your little black dress a run for its money.

At the office: Pair the Shannon pants with our Leanne classic white shirt and pumps of your choice. The look is crisp, clean, and uncluttered. Or, layer our Candy bustier underneath the Contemporain jacket for style that's slightly more contemporary (and that will easily take you from the corner office to cocktails with a quick swipe of lipstick and exchange of accessories).

For date night, or girls' night out: Swap the Candy bustier for a silky tank (turn up the heat with a cami-style tank, if you please), and pumps for peep-toes. Or, keep Candy and add a thin metallic belt atop the waistband of the pants for a hint of pop that won't steal the limelight. This look would also look appropriate at a wedding; just add a light silk or cashmere wrap atop the bustier (delicate, dangling earrings would look so pretty!).

Cool, girl: Try the pants with our Cheri cable sweater. A black-on-black monotone look is especially slimming, and paves the way to add color wherever you'd like—try a nude patent shoe, richly-hued scarf or brighter shade of lip color than you'd normally wear. The sweater layers easily over our Gigi striped shirt, too, for cooler days (and nights).

Of course, the best way to have any pair of pants look their best is to have the fit customized with the help of a trusted tailor (ask our style team about who we recommend).

Now, you wear the pants: tell us what you love about your favorite pair in the comments below.
