Pinspired: Slim Black Celine-Inspired Pants

Tuesday, March 18, 2014 • Permalink • 

I’ve been “pinspired.” This new-to-me Pinterest pin featuring a super chic Celine look has renewed my desire to find the perfect pair of slim black pants.

Paired with a slouchy grey cashmere sweater and this season's hotter-than-hot slip on skater sneakers, a pair of slim fitting black trousers come off as cool and sporty with a chic downtown vibe. I've got to find a pair to call my own.

I’m hunting for a slightly cropped, and therefore slightly boyish look – really, the more affordable version of Celine. It can’t be that hard, right? I think I’m close. One of these five pair is the slim black pant of my dreams. Which one is your favorite?

These 3.1 Phillip Lim Pencil Trousers feel appropriately posh, though substantially less expensive than the real deal. The cotton/ nylon/ elastane fabric should wear well.

These stretch twill pants fall on the super affordable end of the spectrum, thanks to a great sale price. The skinny fit looks very close to the fit of the Celine version and will look great paired with oversized chunky knits.

While these J.Crew trousers don’t have the skinny fit of my inspiration, I do love the stretch wool construction. These will be appropriate for a wider variety of workplaces, making them much more useful for the average woman’s wardrobe.

If you are loving the slim look, but aren’t so sure about the skinnier silhouette, these pants are for you. They offer the same modern minimalist vibe as all of the other pants featured here, but with a much more forgiving fit.
