Hey hey,

I've seen plenty of instances of charcoal/gray pants with a black sweater, but what about a charcoal sweater with black pants?

woah, lots of newb posts tonight
I try to stay away from black pants and would go with dark navy if possible. No real problem with that combo though

Thanks. I don't have all my clothes here at school and need to dress up a little bit (which where I go to school doesn't take more than wearing something other than sweats...KILL ME) for an event.

Care to elaborate on the new post comment?

I tried on the black pants, (which I really have nothing else to wear with) and that charcoal sweater just sort of looked out of place. Wanted to double check.

Ah! My apologies. I figured you were taking a crack at something I said.

Not at all, welcome to the forum and you might also want to search for this topic aswell. There are a few threads on pant color/shirt/sweater combo's. Also, it's always best to post pics to get the best understanding of what you are proposing

As long as you like black pants (many posters here don't), I can't imagine why a charcoal sweater would be an objectionable pairing.

Not a particulary bad combo but I would maybe go with a different sweater to give the outfit a little more color.
