Sue requested a few picks for slim or skinny office appropriate pants with a mid-rise, so here we go:
J.Crew Maddie Pant in Bi-stretch Wool – was $120, now $84
with code JINGLE
J.Crew tends to do low rise almost exclusively, but this style hits above the hip for a mid-rise fit. The leg is slim and tapered but not skinny. Not a fan of this bright red? This style is also available in purple, navy, black, brown, or heather gray. In sizes 00 -16, including petite and tall sizes.Size availability varies by color. These navy wool pants are a slimmer fit, but also ankle length and available in 14W – 22W. Want a full-length option instead? Banana Republic’s Martin straight-leg is available in black wool.
Kut from the Kloth Diana – was $69.50, now $45.90
Cords won’t work for all office environments, but dressed up with heels and a cashmere sweater they’ll definitely pass muster in creative and business casual workplaces. Kut from the Kloth does mid-rise almost exclusively, and although this style is listed as a skinny reviewers have pointed out that the leg isn’t skin-tight. Also this style will stretch with wear, so consider ordering down. Available in this olive as well as charcoal, brown, khaki, black, navy, pink, teal, or magenta in sizes 0 – 14 including petite sizes. Size availability varies by color. Also love this style in crosshatch print. This mid-rise cord is available in five fun colors in sizes 14W – 26W.
Anne Klein Slim Pant – was $89, now $54.22
These poly-blend pants will be a great year-round option if wool and corduroy feel too seasonal to you, and relatively wrinkle-free. If you prefer to tuck your shirts and that little gold logo will drive you bananas (as it would me), I’m betting it can be clipped off with wire cutters. Just sayin’. Available in sizes 6 – 16 in black and 2 – 16 in brown. Available in black in sizes 16W – 24W, and petite 4P – 14P. Use code 30CLOTHING to get an additional 30% off the brown versions.

- Banana Republic – Mentioned this above, but the Martin fit is a mid-rise and generally available in slim and trouser styles.
