What would you pay for a perfect, magical pair of black pants? At first you might balk at the $750 price tag of Derek Lam’s flared trouser, but that is before you’ve tried them on. Let’s review what a perfect, magical pant does for you. It makes your legs look a mile long and your butt look perfect. It makes you feel tall and thin and like you are Wonder Woman in the boardroom or just at a party with your ex-boyfriend in attendance. In the perfect pair of black pants, you CAN conquer the world. I’m telling you.
So before you laugh, go ahead, try them on. I dare you not to hand over your credit card. And just when you think you are safe, your fashion stylist (that’s me) tells you they come in navy too. (Also you should add up the cost of all the pants in your closet that don’t make you feel like Wonder Woman!)
