Insomniac Sale Picks: Office-appropriate Ankle 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?*

Jessica requested a few picks for office-appropriate ankle pants, so here we go:


Boden Bistro Crop Trouser – was $138, now $59.84 – $117.30
with code H4F4

Boden has been doing this crop for several years running, and each season brings a new batch of colors and patterns. This fall, we’ve got a couple of plaids, polka dots, a floral, dark leopard print, five solids, and this subtle metallic jacquard. Fiber content varies by color, so do peek at the “Details” tab. Available in sizes 2 – 18, including some long lengths. Also in petite 2P -10P. JCPenney has a variety of colors and prints in sizes 16W – 24W.

Nic + Zoe Silvia Perfect Pant – was $118, now $29.99 – $36.99

Jessica specifically mentioned that skin-tight ankle pants are right out, and this pair features more of a straight-leg style. They’re a rayon/cotton blend, so hopefully fairly wrinkle-resistant. And I love the clean front, pocketless styling. Available in this red as well as tan, khaki, black, and mint green in sizes 2 – 16. Size availability varies by color. For another straight-leg option, this Charter Club pair comes in ivory and navy. This style is a little slimmer but comes in a similar array of colors in sizes 14W – 26W.

ck ankle pant Calvin Klein Women’s Slim-Fit Suit Pant– was $89, now $59.93

This shape is my favorite: Not too skinny, but a little slimmer than a straight- leg. This is a poly/rayon blend, so not wool suiting, but should have some give to it and a nice hand. And another pocketless front for a smooth fit. Available in sizes 2 – 14. This similar pair is available in 14W – 24W.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for office-appropriate ankle pants:

  1. J.Crew – The vast majority of styles offered are cropped or ankle length. The cult-favorite Minnie is probably a bit tight for more conservative offices, but the slim styles offer a looser fit.
  2. Loft – Prints and solids in regular, petite, and tall lengths. This plaid pair comes in three cuts so you can pick a style that works with your curves.
  3. Piperlime – Check the “trouser” section for cropped pants in slim, wide, pleated, and flat styles. I’m very tempted by these slouchy stretch wool ankle pants.

        I saw some beauts last season, but didn’t know the name for what I was seeing until the Lucky “affordable coats” slideshow the other day. Sadly, the peplum coat in the slideshow was a bit garish… I’m looking for something more classic.
