OOTD: Cropped Dress Pants Winter Edition

When it comes to work attire, I can't get enough of black and white. Hand me something super basic with clean lines and high-quality fabric and I guarantee I'll love it. I would describe my personal style as very simply. I like to dress comfortably with minimal accessories--a hint of sparkle here, a pop of colour there. As I'm adapting to a more professional lifestyle, I am beginning to treat every new clothing purchase as an investment. I'm building a wardrobe nest-egg if you will--full of timeless pieces that my Nana would describe as the ones, "You can't afford not to buy." I don't mind spending more on items that I know I will wear and adore for years to come. They are the items that will time and time again be spared at my semi-annual Goodwill inspection and will remain staples in my closet. When I saw these Aritzia black cropped dress pants I knew I had to have them, despite the hefty price tag. I tried them on my first time in New York, fell in love, and asked pretty pretty please to receive them as a birthday present during my second visit to the city. They are a dream pant--the perfect length for a short girl like me and they hug your hips in just the right places. Normally I would wear cropped pants with strappy heels or pumps, but it's still so freezing cold in Canada that wearing open-toed shoes is downright unfathomable. I opted for my black suede booties that I bought at The Bay. March 5 - Cohen pants My top is also from Aritzia. The statement necklace is from The Bay. The gold bracelet was a gift; it's made by Nine West. March 5 - Pantsuit This blazer... oh-my-goodness, I just adore it. I picked it up at LOFT in NYC. I found searching through their Petite section. I love the asymmetrical zipper across the front and the fact that it's cropped and super fitting throughout my shoulders. March 5 - Pink Shirt Oh and look... it seems as though I've deviated from my go-to black and white. This flowy magenta blouse from Aritzia is another keeper. It's perfect for work or to throw on over black skinnies for a date night. So there you have it: Cropped pants in the winter! I simply can't wait to put together new ensembles for Spring, Summer, and Fall. These are a pant for all seasons.
