Garrett requested a few picks for quality work trousers, so here we go:
Ann Taylor Curvy Tropical Wool Trouser – was $129, now $77.40
with code TRENDS40
Garrett was specifically hoping for some dressier-than-cotton options, and tropical wool is a classic. These trousers are lined, but tropical wool is lightweight and meant to work year-round. Available in sizes 00 -18, including some petite and tall sizes. (Non-curvy tropical wool options from Ann Taylor here and here.)
Eddie Bauer Slightly Curvy Wool Gabardine Trouser – was $139.95, now $129.95
Not sure why all the sale pants are some variant of a “curvy” style, but these are less so than the Ann Taylor pair. With a mid-rise and just a hint of stretch, these lined wool trousers are also a good bet for all-season wear. Available in heather brown, heather gray, and black in sizes 2 – 20 including some petite and tall sizes.
Anne Klein Tropical-Wool-Blend Bootcut Pant – was $99, now $79.20
with code BRANDS
These are a wool/polyester/stretch blend and unlined, so I’m hoping they’re a nice soft weave. If a wide, trouser leg doesn’t suit you, this slightly contoured boot cut could be a great alternative. They look black, but these pants are navy blue. Available in sizes 0 -16.
Other not-currently-on-sale resources for quality work trousers:
- Banana Republic – Although quality can vary, BR is my main source for work basics like trousers. Shop in fall and winter when fabrics are heavier.
- Talbots – With petite, plus, petite plus, tall, and standard sizes, Talbots gets the prize for best size diversity.
- Brooks Brothers – With styles from wide legged to skinny and lots of quality materials, this legacy brand is a good bet.
- And, of course, THRIFT STORES! Durable goods like lined wool trousers typically hold up to use, so they’re good bets for thrifting. (thethriftshopper.com can help you locate stores near you.)
