Black Pants And Statement Sweater: Festive Outfit Bonanza Look 3

Black pants with statement sweater

Hi there! I’m back with the third of my series of festive style posts and today is the turn of the ever classic black pants with a statement sweater, an easy no-brainer look.

Let’s imagine the scenario…you’re at work wearing some black pants, your comfy office shoes and a plain blouse and it’s the office party in the evening. No problem…pop on a fancy sweater, change out your shoes, add a clutch bag and you’re good to go!

You know, I realised that my black pants have never been officially featured on my blog. I’ve had them for a good while. I made them using my basic pant block pattern that was taken from some RTW ones and then refined a little. Apart from a curved 3″ deep waistband and a centre fly front, they are basically quite plain with a sleek silhouette. The fabric is a two-way stretch poly/viscose blend from Ditto Fabrics and I bought it aaaages ago.

My sweater originally featured in this post where I talk about how I designed it and how to create the double-layer ruffle. Both the plain ivory wool/acrylic blend knit and the georgette came from Truro fabrics

The next couple of photos show some sweater details. I made the neckline asymmetrical to complement the angled hemline. To finish it off in a non-bulky way I bound the edge with some of the georgette fabric and I like how delicate it looks. The ruffle/flounce is double layered and finished with a rolled hem done of the overlocker.

I feel dressy but not over the top in this and the whole outfit is extremely comfortable to wear and quite cosy too. I’ve worn this exact combination on a few occasions and love it.
