The Black Pants You Need

The one item customers are always looking to update any time of the year is a black pant. Maybe it is time for a new casual pair, or something dressier. Whatever it may be, black pants are the foundation of every wardrobe. How many times do I walk into my closet bleary eyed with 10 minutes to get ready and grab any black pant I can find quickly? The answer is way too often.

We of course have our all-time most popular pant — the Scuba pant by Veronica Beard. I have seen them paired casual with sneakers and a button down untucked, to paired for evening with a sequin shirt and pointy heel. This year we added the Vince legging to our collection; it’s just as comfortable but made of an Italian ponte that has great stretch and is just so flattering!

Tibi and Veronica Beard have great dress pants for work, Nili Lotan does casual best with the cropped military cargo and the longer French military pant. Then of course we all need black denim. Rag & Bone has a sleek coated version and the Mother mid rise Dazzler ankle is perfect to show off all your bootie game this fall.

Whatever you need, we have the update for your fall wardrobe.

I spent the first part of my career as a copy-writer who helped elected officials brag about their support for entrepreneurs. Then I decided to get off the printed page and do it myself. The Shoe Hive made a splash on the fashion scene in Washington, and was named the region’s best shoe store in its first year. Fourteen years later, I have tripled the store’s size and also opened a sister store, The Hive. At The Hive, we offer clothing lines that are sophisticated and approachable like Rag & Bone, Tibi, Raquel Allegra, Ulla Johnson and Veronica Beard. We have tried to fill our racks with clothing you will want to wear all the time, elevated basics that are worth the investment.

Heard the buzz? The Shoe Hive & The Hive are a pair of luxury boutiques in Old Town Alexandria. Featuring both big name designers like Rag & Bone and Stuart Weitzman and smaller brands like AGL and L'Agence, our unique selection and impeccable service are what set us apart.
