GOING GRAY

February 16, 2015


Good morning, Everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! 

I wanted to take this opportunity to say hello and share a few images of the cutest Editor pants I picked up at Express over the weekend. I've actually been shopping for a gray pant suit for some time now, but haven't been able to find exactly what I was looking for. Well, that changed very quickly once I tried this one on:) Aside from the fact that I absolutely adore this shade of gray, the suit jacket is a perfect combination of tailoring and the nonchalant slouchiness I am very fond of. But, I think one of the biggest reasons I fell in love with this suit is the fit of the pants. As I have mentioned before, when it comes to dress pants, I prefer a slightly less tapered fit and longer length. This particular fit insures I can dress them up with heels and a cute clutch or down, paired with flats and a tee. And as far as length is concerned, these ones happen to be just perfect! Long enough so that I can wear them with heels, yet not so long that my shoes are completely covered ( I mean what is the point of wearing cute shoes if no one can see them ). I also really like the way this length works with flats. I am a bit obsessed with cuffing my pants at the moment, as you may have noticed, and I find that rolling the edge twice tends to look the best. Any more than that sometimes looks a bit bulky and less just doesn't create the desired effect. 








Finally, since I am more than a little bit addicted to dress pants and wear them quite a bit, I find that a little stretch can go a long way:) Aside from the fact that it helps to create a more flattering fit, it also ensures that the pants retain their shape throughout the day. In other words, no stretchy knees or other parts which tend to stretch out after sitting down :) 

What about you guys, what do you look for in dress pants?
