With its classic cut and monotone color, office slacks get a bad reputation for appearing plain and boring, but they're a lot more versatile than you think. Here, we show you the little ways you can style this workwear staple:


1. Update your hip-hugging slacks with a high-waisted pair. 

This simple update can make a big difference.

2. Match the color of your inner top with your shoes for a stylishly coordinated look. 

3. Accessorize with leather! 

A pointed pair of leather flats will quickly add a sleek edge to your corporate look.

FN Tip: Try wearing a black belt with a gold buckle (instead of silver hardware) to add a luxe touch to your day-to-day outfit.

4. If you often wear black slacks, consider getting it in another office-appropriate color like beige, white, or navy blue to switch things up. 

5. Take the no-fail route to looking chic: Dress in one color. 

6. If the dress code permits, reach for a pair of shoes in an interesting hue.

Try jewel tones like mustard and emerald green that won't appear too loud against your black-and-white office outfits. 

7. Add texture! 

Instead of a plain white button-down shirt, why not wear a shiny satin top?
