My friends would know: I really, really like tote bags. There is a kind of innocence to them which somehow reminds me of my much younger days when I was still a school girl. And I have decided to include one of them in this outfit just to offset the sense of formality that is so often associated with a pair of plain black work slacks.
About the latter, I have recently learned that it is not necessarily unflattering as long as it has the right cut and fit. As I am not quite tall, my first choice is naturally slacks with a high waist so as to visually lengthen my frame. And I would certainly recommend one that is tapered and slim (not tight!) with cuffs that graze the ankles which will give its wearer a silhouette that is more modern.
