I have a lot of clothes, but like many of you, I only wear a fraction of them. It's taught me about the pieces I really love and which I only sorta like. And the pants I wear most often? Kate Middleton was just spotted in them.

Aside from 7 For All Mankind and DL1961 jeans, I repeatedly wear sleek black trousers, of which I own various silhouettes. Classic trousers, whether skinny, straight, or of the wide-leg variety, pair well with everything, from sweaters and turtlenecks to blouses and crop tops, not to mention they're appropriate for nearly every occasion. Middleton styled her black trousers with a fuchsia turtleneck and a coordinating jacket for a pre-Thanksgiving outing, rounding out the ensemble with black heels, some dazzling jewels, and the perfect blowout. Now I want a fuchsia turtleneck and matching coat — I guess that's the Middleton effect.

Trusty black trousers are like that really good friend that is always there for you and will never, ever let you down. I honestly don't think you can have enough of them, which is why you should definitely scoop them up while they're on sale for Black Friday.
