Yesterday, I attempted to buy a pair of black pants. I have been without this wardrobe staple for almost 4 years. The question is: what kind of style do I go with? The whole flare or bootleg cut is not for me. I'm much to adjusted to my straight and skinny jeans to try something new. So there I was, in the fitting room of The Gap, with a straight, a slim, and slim cropped style surrounding me. And here's my problem: while they all fit and looked great, I couldn't help but thinking they looked too much like black jeans or leggings. So is there anyway someone could confuse my tight slim black pants as leggings or should I just stick to wearing skirts and dresses to work?
