Fun with suspenders and Theory pants straight off the rack!
A classic black and white ensemble can be reminiscent of Chanel but with a gray scale palette you run the risk of looking like a waitress.
Distinguish yourself from a hostess or waitress by adding an unexpected accessory like suspenders and a pair of heels with a pop of color. The cut* of these pants are perfect for showcasing shoes, so I chose my green suede shoes since I have been waiting for the fall to pop them out again.
Prefer black shoes? I suggest pointed or peep toe heels with red polish and red lips (not for work):
Anne Fontaine suspenders, Anne Fontaine blouse, Theory Pants,
Louboutin heels (decolette and no prive)
Do you own suspenders?
I like suspenders on women and men (think Ed Westwick as Chuck Bass on "Gossip Girl"--not Larry King). Most of my friends hate them. These suspenders are of great quality and are fully adjustable but they are quite pricey. You can replicate the look of the feminine flower detailing by using pins or broaches on any suspenders.

* These ibbey pants (graduation fabric) have a cropped cut so they fit me with no hemming required.
