Let's discuss the LBP, also known as the little black pants.
Ladies, you all know what we're talking about. Every woman has a pair, or five. Whether its wide-legged or straight, mid-rise or high-waisted, pockets or lack thereof, you'll always find a reason to justify buying just. one. more. Through the years, the LBP has become an iconic women's staple, especially in the office. They're slimming, comfortable, and let's face it, goes with just about any top - super easy when you're already late for a morning meeting and the R train is running late...again.
Keep in mind, despite the long winter we just experienced (bet Punxsutawney Phil didn't see that coming), it is Spring afterall. So while the little black pants works in your favor year-round, try swapping the dark tops and blazers with some lights and vibrant hues. Here, we balanced the LBP with a simple white cotton tee (yet another staple that we all have), and completed the look with our "Sable" Starfish Silk Scarf in Caribbean Blue styled as casual side drape. Didn't think you could be chic AND comfortable in the office with so little effort, did you?
For that extra pop of color, grab a candy-hued handbag like we did here with a structured orange tote. While this look is simple and effortless, the subtle color coordination between the bag and accessories will make for quite the ensemble! Not to mention the added color and pattern-play will undoubtedly change your mood for the better! Top it all off with a fedora for laid-back office settings and those Sunday brunches!

P.S. Sorry New Yorkers, but the R has been ranked as one of the most unreliable subway lines, right next to the C, the L, the 6, the Z, the F...shall we continue?
