I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: It’s the greatest feeling when you find a pair of pants that actually fits, and you buy them in every color, because you don’t know when you’ll come across the same fit again.
It happens to me quite frequently when I shop J.Crew. Seriously, each pair of pants I’ve purchased fits precisely how I want it to.
Take J.Crew’s stretch wool élan trouser, for example. You’d think at first look that pleats would be a. unflattering, b. unflattering, and c. ill-fitting, but really, these trousers are the exact opposite. They’ve got an easy-chic fit, that’s fitted at the hip, more full through the thigh, and both cropped and skinny-esque at the bottom. The hems are cuffed.
These stretchy wool pants feature slant pockets on the front – almost hidden, completely flattering – and welt pockets in the back. They’re completely comfy, which is great for both office dress and after-work play. Worn with a loose silk tank, boyfriend blazer, and some sky high-heels, and you’ve got a look that you can wear anywhere.
