OXFORDS & STRIPES

February 10, 2016


Finding a great-fitting pair of dress pants sounds easy enough, but in reality, or at least in my experience, the right fit is not always easy to find. Sure, there is an abundance of dress pants out there, yet up until I found the Columnist ankle pant from Express, I've always struggled to find a pair that fits right. You see, I like a slim-fitting pant that sits a little lower on the waist and hits just above the ankle, so I can wear it with heels, flats and boots. Polished and modern, reason why I like this fit so much, besides the fact that it works with every style of shoe imaginable is because I can easily dress it up or down. For today's look, I paired it with a simple white Portofino shirt and a striped trench coat from Express, a pair of black and white oxfords and a bright red scarf do add a pop of color to this classic office-ready outfit. Yet, I could have easily worn these pants with a turtleneck, a leather jacket and some fun sneakers for a more casual look. Basically, I've worn these pants to dinner parties and business meetings, and they never missed a mark. And knowing how I feel about versatility, you know how much I love that! :)

I've been looking for a classic ankle length black trouser and prefer the lower rise. Did you get the trousers in Longs? 5'9" here and often ankle length trousers don't fall nicely when I stand up because they hit higher up my calf when I sit and then don't drop when I stand. Drives me crazy. Love the outfit!

You are so right, finding the right pair of trousers can be quite a challenge, especially for shorter girls with bottoms like me. :) So far I had to alter most of mine. Love your outfit very much - elegant, but fresh and modern. x

Party Dress said...

A gathering dress is a dress worn particularly for a gathering. Diverse sorts of gathering, for example, kids' gathering, mixed drink party, garden gathering and ensemble gathering would have a tendency to require distinctive styles of dress.One great style of gathering dress for ladies in advanced society is the minimal dark dress.
