Jennifer G. requested a few picks for casual pants that aren’t jeans, so here we go:
Gap Skinny Moto Pants – was $69.95, now $44.99
PLUS an extra 25% off sale items with code GAPJOY
The “skinny cargo” trend generally perplexes me, but this particular iteration looks far sleeker and chicer than most I’ve seen. The pocket placement is nice and high on the pant, the curved zips at the ankle lend a tough-but feminine look, AND they’ve got a nice, high rise! Natural waist! Eesh, I think I’d better nab a pair for myself … smaller sizes sold out in some colors, but available in US 2 through 20, and in petite and tall sizes.
Not Your Daughter’s Jeans Desiree Ponte Wide-Leg Pants – was $104, now $72
I sing the praises of ponte knit almost constantly, but allow me a refrain: This soft-but-structured fabric is fabulously comfortable, yet looks far more polished than jersey. I’m yet to try the NYDJ line, but hear great things about their wares and love the look of this elegant pair of ponte wide legs. They’re on the dressy side of casual, to be sure, but still make a great, comfy alternative to jeans and khakis. Available through US size 16. (Through 18 on Zappos for $77.99.) These pants have a 33″ inseam.
Eddie Bauer Modern Fit Cords – was $59.95, now $29.97
Corduroy is a fabulous alternative to denim and khaki, and there are just about as many colors, cuts, and fits available right now as your casual-pant-seeking mind could imagine. These EB ones have a mid rise and straight leg fit, and come in this brick red as well as navy, olive, pale blue, and stone. Available to US size 20, and in petite and long lengths.
Other not-currently-on-sale resources for casual pants that aren’t jeans:
- J.Crew – Again, although full-priced items may seem outrageous, this retailer has stellar sales. My favorite pair of skinny cords was purchased at J.Crew. Definitely hit the sale racks in January – amazing clearance deals. Always.
- ModCloth – Be sure to read reviews and measurements carefully, as there can be a lot of variation. But wow, this online shop has a fabulous selection of printed, bright, and fun casual pants.
- And, of course, THRIFT STORES! The great thing about thrifting pants is that they’ve been worn and washed several times, so what you see/feel is what you get. Cords, khakis, and prints abound, so do take a peek. (thethriftshopper.com can help you locate stores near you.)
