They're free to leave your work desk, FYI!

The scenarios you most likely associate with the sombre row of black slacks hanging in your wardrobe: (1) a dreaded Monday meeting; (2) the never-ending Wednesday workload; (3) the tall stack of looming Friday deadlines you're positively dying to escape. Tough call, but forget it all. Below, an OOTD-supplied guide on how to style those trousers far, far away from the office, whether your pair is straight cut, wide-leg, or carrot-shaped.

Cool Ways to Style Black Slacks Outside the Office:

1. Liz Uy is actually wearing a sexy jumpsuit here, but you get the idea: a slinky, barely-there cami under a hot sauce-hued blazer and statement Midnight 00 mules make an ace holiday party ensemble.

2. Give your sweats a break, chides Liz. Contrary to popular belief, a trouser fares great as long haul flight wearchoose wrinkle proof fabric to ensure that you remain polished even after one transfer, a four-hour layover, and (god forbid!) a brave battle with missing luggage.

3. Leather or not, Sarah Lahbati guarantees that a simple ribbed white tank top and whisper slim strappy kitten heels are the perfect weekend off-duty accoutrements. Cop her pose, too, while you're at it!

4. A silken touch of amber satin lends you that elusively effortless boudoir feel Sarah's naturally so good at channeling. Pajama chic is, well, chic! Team with on-trend, square beaked ivory pumps peeking strategically from your hems and lots of attitude.

5. Sweet, pretty Liza Soberano has got us craving Dior threads more than ever—as if we weren't jealous enough! Her head-to-toe 'fit is equal parts casual and crisp. Never underestimate the power of a brandished logo tee, those house signature slingbacks, and, of course, the Saddle.

6. It's swing time! We love Heart Evangelista's laidback lewks these days (remember her current fave blazer-over-hoodie trick?), and this one—which consists of a fun Gucci pullover and flirty fringe trim—is high on our list. 

7. You always have the option of suiting up, should you please. No need for an occasion. Camille Co's version—loose, languid, and floor grazing—is an easy recipe to dressy comfort you can take from desk to drinks and back.

8. Truly nothing beats the timeless appeal of a turtleneck tucked loosely into mannish cropped pants. Kim Jones attests, turning the whole thing dainty via huge pearl danglers, beribboned Dior pumps, and a headturning shade of sunset orange. Spotlight: stolen.

9. Dior is proving to be this roundup's unanimous favorite, it seems! To promote her steamy latest flick, the much-discussed Just A Stranger, Anne Curtis topped off with a monogrammed bucket hat and matching utilitarian sling. Talk about getting those Ds.

10. Collegiate cute, according to Jess Wilson: A Sunnies Studios sweater, subtle stripes, PVC sandals, and retro aviator specs. What better way to spend a cozy, productive afternoon in the school library in? Study hard, ladies.

11. Janine Gutierrez is really out here making Audrey Hepburn, waif legend of Roman Holiday and Breakfast at Tiffany's fame, beyond proud. When all else fails, depend leisurely on the infallible elegance of this noir look, easily mimicked with similar pieces available at every price point.

12. Kathryn Bernardo squints in the golden sunset in relaxed separates that'd fare just as brilliantly on a lazy Sunday as they would on your daily grind. Just swap your usual sensible stilts for Kath's pristine white sneaks, and your big ol' work tote for her achingly adorable little Prada Cahier.

13. We've already announced the cardigan's grand return into the style scene, and Claudia Barretto's way ahead of the game. Here's a no-brainer route to rocking yours: Select a slouchy version with interesting buttons (tiny pearls or even crested gold will do) and toss over your slacks. Peak chill.

14. Summer follows the sunny Renee de Guzman wherever she goes. She sure knows how to dress for it, too! Fuse a myriad of seasonal touches by styling a very '90s singlet with a moss green felt beret, scrunched socks, and buckled loafers. That's a bit of autumn mixed right in.

15. We're telling you, your workwear closet can sail to the seaside for an extended vacay. Jeline Catt's bare-shouldered puffed sleeves and Riviera-ready lace-up flats are proof that you don't have to wear an exclusively bright palette to the beach.
