Black Pant Suit Fashion Tips:
What Color Blouse to Wear with a Black Pant Suit
Some pant suits come with a coordinating blouse, while others are designed to be worn just as two pieces. But there are also some pant suits that are designed to be worn with your own blouse (the blouse is not included with the suit).
Luckily, when you are trying to find a coordinating blouse to wear with a black pant suit, just about every color works well. Just pick a color that is appropriate for the occasion. For example, if you are wearing a business pant suit, a white or creamed colored blouse is a good choice.
Dressy Black Pant Suit
A dressy black pant suit, like a dressy black dress, is appropriate to wear to a wide range of occasions. Since you are dressing up, make sure the pant suit you wear looks dressy and not like one that you would wear to the office.
Look for black pant suits in soft material (such as chiffon). A sheer flowing jacket can be quite dressy. Very dressy black pant suits can be appropriate for formal occasions. A formal black pant suit may have embellishments such as beading or sequins.
Many people feel that black is not an appropriate color to wear to a wedding, so you may want to wear a formal pant suit in a different color if you are attending one.
Black Pant Suit Separates
Putting together a black pant suit outfit can be tricky if your purchase the pants and jacket separately. Just because both items are black doesn’t necessarily mean they will match. In fact, they could clash.
When trying to see if the separates look right together, check the color of the fabrics in various different kinds of light (i.e. daylight, indoor light, etc.). You may find it easier to coordinate a jacket that isn’t completely black (for example, it is patterned) with a pair of black slacks.
What Color Shoes to Wear with a Womens Black Pant Suit
Black is an obvious color option for the shoes that you choose to wear with your black pant suit. Another idea is to wear shoes that match the color of the blouse that you are wearing with your pant suit.
