5 Ways to Wear Black Cigarette Pants: Girls’ Lunch Out

Happy Thursday, friends! This is the 4th look in my series on 5 Ways to Wear Black Cigarette Pants, and this time I have a look I might wear to meet a friend to lunch.

The denim jacket takes it down a level from my typical “date night” look, but the boots and silky tank are dressier than what I usually wear to run errands around town.

I actually think I’d like this look better with a more casual shoe — maybe a pointy toe ballet flat or my loafer mules.

But anyway! Since I am wearing these boots, I will sing their praises once again.

These boots are sooo comfortable.

They have a padded footbed, and the neoprene is soft and stretchy against the top of the foot, so you get the flattering shape of the pointy toe without any discomfort. Plus, the 3 1/2″ heel is stable and very walkable.

It thought the red tank was a nice pop of color with the black and denim — a nice change from the neutrals I usually gravitate towards.

Unfortunately this tank has sold out in the exact color I have, but it comes in other colors, some are on sale! It’s a really good layering piece if you’re looking for something that is bra-friendly, and I love the raw edge details.

I added a chunky mixed metal necklace and hoop earrings — both by Lucky Brand. They have a casual vibe that plays well off the denim jacket.

I’ve had so much fun styling these pants different ways. It’s a nice break from denim!

Of course, I did manage to slip some denim into this series with this jacket. It’s been my go-to denim jacket for several years. It has such a good versatile wash, and I love how stretchy and comfortable it is.

Here’s another way I’ve styled these pants with this denim jacket, and all four of my outfits from this series.

I’ll be back next week with my final post in the series, and it includes two spring work wear looks with the 1901 ankle skinny pants.
