Best in Show: Our Ride or Die List of the Best Black Pants for All Occasions
BY GEORGIA ROSE
A pair of black pants, regardless of the cut or fit, is always my number one most-worn item.
09 OCT - 2022
I passionately say I love them, and am constantly trying to convince my friends into investing. Wear to work, wear to events, wear on a date night with a cute top: bingo!
The burgeoning trouser trend has been spreading widely, and thanks to TikTok pushing the capsule wardrobe, I’m finally ‘in fashion.’
Something to note is my body shape. I’m a size 12 in NZ and have a bigger bottom/thigh area, with a smaller waist. So purchasing a perfectly fitting pair of pants the first time round is no easy feat. Having tried more black pants than I can count, and subsequently returning them, I’ve pulled the crème de la crème from my wardrobe to save you the hassle.
Feele Wide Leg Pleat Pant
I first purchased these pants in brown and since purchased them in the other two colours, yes they’re that good. For this price, you usually find the fabric is cheap, and won’t wear well, but it’s completely the opposite. These Feele pants are a thick tencel fabric (without feeling heavy) and feel luxurious.
If you have a similar body type to me, you’ll find they fit nicely around the thigh and bottom area without being too tight which is a huge tick for me.

Ruby Franka Pant
Highlighting your waist area is always flattering. Ruby’s made it easier with their V cut Franka pants. The shape cuts at all the right points, emphasising the smallest part of the body and drawing the eye down. Tuck in a white T-shirt, for an immediately elevated look. I also love Ruby’s inclusive sizing!

Chosen by Tuchuzy Low Rise Suit Pant
Another epic pair of low-rise pants. Tuchuzy have launched their own label ‘Chosen’ which keeps going from strength to strength. The Low Rise Suit Pant look and feel high quality, but for a great price.
