I clearly remember when I worked in an office the struggle of deciding what to wear each morning. Outfit planning for the week on Sunday night made it better, but I didn’t always make time to do that. And the struggle is real to find a decent pair of quality, well-fitting pants! Pants were the go-to because you could wear them with almost anything, dress them up for meetings or down for a more casual look.
Being petite presents its own set of challenges, so I used to shop LOFT’s
petite section for pants
and wouldn’t have to alter the length (they also come in regular and tall). The ‘Marisa’ trousers
were perfect because they have a straight leg silhouette, with a comfortable mid-rise, narrow at the hips and thigh.
EXPRESS was also good (the Editor & Columnist), but they were on the thinner side (order “short” for petite frames). But, I always loved my work pants from Banana Republic because I always found their quality to be better and those pants lasted a long time.
I was on the hunt again for a good pant I could run around in when I was tired of jeans or dress up for dinners and school functions, and came across the Sloat-Fit Skinny Pants
. They are a mid-rise, ankle length pant that’s fitted through the hip and thigh- which is why I call them the “Skinny Pants”. They come is so many fun colors and patterns now too.
FIT: I ordered a red pair in size 2P and a black pair in 0P. When they arrived, I couldn’t even get the black 0P on, but the 2P in the red fit perfectly! I’m 5’1, about 108 pounds
I’m assuming the 2P would fit the same in black, so I’m going to exchange them, but for today I’m showing you the red pair. And now I’m tempted to get the fuschia for Spring or a fun printed pair.
For winter, you can’t go wrong with black and white with red, and this 3/4 slouchy turtleneck tee is soft with perfect stripes!
It makes getting ready and facing the workday that much better when you have a cute outfit to wear! Am I right ladies?! Since I don’t work in a traditional office anymore, these pants are great for weekends or school functions when I want something as comfy as jeans, but I want it to seem like I put a little more effort into my outfit.
