Go-To Week in Review

Our fifth POW (Piece of the Week) is the cabi Spring 2016 Go-To Trouser. With this practical, modern, and chic take on the classic black trouser, we learned about black and white style, preppy & professional nautical style, a simple date night look, classic and simple special occasion dressing, dressing down for casual fun, versatile blackout looks, and styling denim on top. While clearly professional, the  Go-To Trouser can be styled for a huge variety of events.

Without further ado, let’s review this classic week! Which is your favorite?
