A denim girl through and through, I’ve always dismissed the classic pant as something suitable only for job interviews and other stuffy occasions. But this season, a few designers are overturning that notion with skillful details and flattering silhouettes.
(1) An obi-inspired tie, complimentary shades of grey, and the perfect amount of slouch erase all memory of the unflattering black dress pants in the back of my closet. Elie Tahari – Abby Pants
(2) Alexander Wang lends unexpected sex appeal to trousers, with a waistline meant to be flaunted by a coquettish crop top. Alexander Wang – Pegged Pants with Belt Detail
(3) First button-downs, and now pants: Victorialand creates suiting separates we’ll actually want to wear after 5 p.m. Victorialand – Slouch Pleated Pants
