All things Pants…that is the current fashion headline and I am loving the options! A reader asked me on Monday where I purchase my slim legs-ankle- length pants. First, I want you to know that one of my wardrobe goals for the past six months has been to upgrade my pants.
My old selections were too big, baggy, and frumpy and they literally put a cramp in my style! So, with the goal in mind of a new more stylish me, I have tried on pants everywhere I have been. Some have worked, some have not…some have worked in the budget, and some have not. The operative phrase here is that I “tried them on.” I highly recommend a visit to a variety of stores and try on a lot of pants…great way to work off calories. Fit is so important, but differs from store to store and label to label. I really am glad I tried on skinny pants, because otherwise I would have just assumed they are for skinny girls.
Not all skinny pants are the same in that great fashion universe. But, I can wear some with success. The same for leggings. I love the ankle length, but I am trying not to do a capri… (Though, I guarantee I will be seen in my old capris this summer). I also purchased the ones with a little stretch in them, but I read a lot of reviews to find out which stretch pants hold their shape.
This is a long winded answer to a simple question…where do you buy your slim- leg- ankle- length pants? You can see today that I purchased these MNG by Mango pants at JCP for about $22 last weekend. I have new pants from Talbots, Coldwater Creek, and Lane Bryant. My Lane Bryant pants are Genius Fit Ankle Jeans and they are an amazing fit.
All three of these retailers run sales and coupons. I highly recommend signing up for their emails, because often that is where I am informed of sales and specials. Currently, Coldwater Creek has a great special on pants and they have an exciting spring line of prints and colors.
So, ladies where do you buy YOUR pants??
Have a wonderful Wednesday!!
