I’m not usually the type of person to wear black, let alone all black! But these side stripe trousers from Zara fit so well I had to buy them. What followed this spontaneous purchase was a period of several months in which I searched for the perfect top to pair them with. These pants could so quickly turn into a professional look and since that’s not the vibe I was going for, I needed a more casual way to wear them. Cue this black lace top from & Other Stories. No one could call this combination professional, unless see-through tops are the trend at your office. The overall look is feminine, sporty, and smart, which is a lot for one outfit to do.
