I'm fairly new to Europe. This time I'm going to seek advice before wearing something to an important work event...

Will I look like a bumblebee if I wear yellow trousers with a black shirt and black pants tomorrow?

Thanks for any advice!

Are trousers and pants not the same thing?

Depends on your waist.

if you're on the bigger side you might resemble a bumblebee, if you're rather slinky you might get away with a wasp.

dI'd you mean black pumps/court shoe?

I never wear black and yellow for this reason. Navy and yellow works better I find.

ItsLikeRainOnYourWeddingDay: yes they are! I meant to write "shoes."

ChardonnayKnickertonSmythe: I do have a bit of a belly.

Well, it looks like I should think of something else. Great advice about navy, HelsBels3000, but I don't have a navy top that's OK for work.

So when I got the yellow trousers on sale, I also got dusky rose pink ones. I would usually never buy pink intentionally, but the expense of returning them was not worth it. Is it OK to wear pink trousers to work with a black shirt and black shoes? Not too childish?

I think we need mirror photos of the two outfits.

I cant really give my proper advice unless I see both outfits together. Would you be able to provide pictures so we can advise you best?
