How to avoid looking like a chef in these pants? #3 Accessorise, accessorise!; #2 Pair with high heels only; #1 DO NOT pair with white top! While we're on the subject of tops, avoid red as well, unless you're going for a bona fide 80's look! Although black pumps are fool proof with these pants, you can try a rich emerald or royal blue suede pump as well. A black silk button down, "down" being the operative word (leave a few buttons undone on top to allow for a statement brass or antique gold necklace), tucked in, and a sequin black clutch.
