Basic Black Pants Styled Four Ways

Guest Blogger Annie Peck Shares Great Looks with WGN Featuring North Shore Exchange Fashions


North Shore Exchange was asked to show how great their pieces are on a segment for WGN.

We took a black pant (something just about everyone owns) and paired it multiple ways to fit your lifestyle. From a casual sweater with a hood for the days you just aren’t feeling like getting too jazzy, to a business look that can take you to date night.

Layers and accessories play a fun impact in each look!
