"How versatile can one item of Theory clothing be? For me, black pants have always been a staple in my wardrobe — the ultimate go-with-everything, appropriate-for-anything item that I reach for time and time again. As an on-the-go, career-oriented woman, I need timeless workwear pieces that work as hard as I do. The Good Wool Black Pant is perfect for any occasion, offering five days of functional yet fashionable styling. How would you wear yours?"

“Of all the outfits in the world, this one is my favorite. In it, I feel the most like myself. Very early on, when I was starting out and had very little to spend on workwear, I quickly learned the value of hard-working, go-with-anything black pants, and a crisp white shirt. Now, nearly 20 years later, this is still my uniform. The blazer is a stylish but practical addition: Battling office air conditioning.”
“The versatility of a trench is wildly underrated. It has become my go-to coat when I don’t know what else to wear. As it is fundamentally utilitarian in form, it works equally well with my black pant as it does with denim, and when you forgo the buttons and tie the belt closed, it literally saves any outfit.”
“I’m a big proponent of all-black everything, and while a black leather jacket is an investment, it is one with a very high return. There are infinite ways to style it, for work and after, but when I put it on with perfectly-fitting black pants, it instantly makes me feel much cooler than I actually am.”
“After acquiring the building blocks of pants and shirting, I love the cozy layers of long-sleeve T--shirts and cashmere sweaters. I know cashmere is an investment, but inevitably the ease of reaching for chic, cozy sweaters means they are some of the hardest-working pieces I own.”
“I never tire of wearing a dress over pants. Unfortunately, I don’t really feel that dresses suit my personality, but this option combines the polish of a dress with the ease and comfort of a classic black pant that works perfectly with flats — the best of all worlds.”
