Insomniac Sale Picks: Petite Ponte Pants

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Susan requested a few picks for petite ponte pants, so here we go:


grey petite pant

Liz Claiborne Petite Ponte Knit Slim Leg Pant – was $49, now $31.67

No bells OR whistles on this pant, but it’s got a classic silhouette, versatile straight leg, faux pockets for a lump-free fit, and reviewers rave about it. Plus it’s machine washable! Available in this charcoal as well as brown, black, or cobalt in petite sizes 2P – 28P. Size availability varies by color. Also available in regular and plus sizes.

petite ponte trousers

Talbots Petite Compact Ponte Trouser – was $119, now $48.99

As I mention below, Talbots is always  great resource for petite sizes and generally has some ponte in stock year-round. Many ponte pant styles are slim-legged, but this trouser features a front crease and a roomy leg. Available in this navy as well as black or charcoal in petite sizes 0P – 16P, as well as regular, plus, AND petite plus sizes! Size availability varies by color. (For an even wider leg, try this J.Crew petite wide-leg ponte pant.)

petite houndstooth

J.Jill Petite Ponte Knit Houndstooth Pant – was $79, now $49.99

Can’t quite see the print in this photo, but this pant has a tiny houndstooth check that gives it a textured look. The flat-front design is comfy and works beautifully under a variety of tops, and unlike many pant offerings these days this is a full-length inseam. Available in this brown houndstooth as well as a black/gray houndstooth in petite sizes XSP – XLP. Also available in regular, plus, and tall sizes.

P.S. I was surprised to find that neither LOFT nor Ann Taylor – typical go-tos for petites – had much in the way of ponte pants. AT has this high-waist flare pair, but they’re nearly sold out.

Sustainable resources for petite ponte pants:

  1. Eileen Fisher – Again, not a lot of sustainable petites out there, but EF has a few options like this skinny ponte pant.
  2. Fair Indigo – Techically neither petite nor ponte, but this sustainable brand offers two versatile knit pant styles.
  3. eBay – Dozens of gently used options in petite sizes.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for petite ponte pants:

  1. Land’s End – Basic pant options in regular, petite, tall, and plus sizes.
  2. Talbots – A couple of work-friendly styles like this classic full-length pant.
  3. NYDJ – Best variety of petite styles, from trousers to skinnies.
