I made the error of purchasing an expensive pair of black dress slacks. Honestly, when purchasing them I couldn't distinguish between navy blue and the black pair, so I figured it was safe.
I paired the black slacks with a blue and green shirt with block patterns and some black lace up shoes. On the surface the color's looked fine, the outfit wasn't out of place or anything. I was at a restaurant/lounge and after finishing my meal I was standing in front of the entrance. A few patrons started showing me their ID as if I worked at the place.
I like the fit of the slacks, but now I find myself hesitant to ever wear them again. Is there any good pairing to wear with black dress pants that don't make you look like a hostess, waiter or parking attendant?
