Insomniac Sale Picks: Mid-rise Slim 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?*

Sue requested a few picks for slim or skinny office appropriate pants with a mid-rise, so here we go:

jcrew wool pants

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

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

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.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for slim or skinny office appropriate trousers with a mid-rise:

  1. Jones New York – Classic office-friendly brand does mainly mid-rise and high-rise styles. Petite and plus sizes available, too.
  2. Macy’s – Unfortunately, the site’s search function is useless, but mainline brands like Style & Co, Alfani, and INC do mid-rise almost exclusively. Petite and plus sizes available, too.
  3. Banana Republic – Mentioned this above, but the Martin fit is a mid-rise and generally available in slim and trouser styles.

Insomniac Sale Picks: Colorful Petite Tunics

*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?*

Sarah requested a few picks for colorful petite tunics, so here we go:

_9682211

Petite  Halogen Wool & Cashmere Tunic Sweater – was $109, now $69.90

Why such a bargain? Only 10% cashmere. But still, a classic cozy shape, elegant neckline, and ideal tunic length. Add a colorful printed scarf and jeans for a chic, casual weekend outfit. Available in petite sizes XSP – XLP in this purple as well as pink, mint green, navy, pale lavender, white, black, or charcoal. Size availability varies by color. Also in regular and plus sizes. Prefer 100% cashmere? This v-neck tunic comes in seven gorgeous colors in petite, regular, and plus sizes.

Land’s End Petite Bracelet Sleeve Silk Tunic – was $89, now $49.99

If you’re looking for more of a shirt-style tunic, this silk option is fantastic. It looks classic and lovely on its own, but will also layer beautifully with long jackets and boyfriend cardigans. Love the shoulder shirring detail. Available in this green as well as cobalt, blush, or white in petite sizes 2 -18. Also available in regular and plus sizes. Land’s End also has this petite terry tunic for only $19.99, but reviewers seem to loathe the pockets …

marled sweater tunic

Style&co. Petite Marled Ribbed-Knit Sweater Tunic – was $49.50, now $23.99
with code MERRRY

I own this very tunic – Macy’s must’ve made it last year since I got mine used – and it is both comfy and cute. I love the pockets and asymmetric neckline. And the fact that it’s machine washable. Available in petite sizes PXS – PXL in this red as well as teal, purple, oatmeal, or black marl. Also in regular sizes and similar in plus sizes. Want a simpler sweater tunic? This cotton-blend v-neck sweater tunic comes in six rich colors in petite, tall, plus, and regular sizes for $29.99.

Honorable mentions:

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for colorful petite tunics:

  1. Nordstrom – Dozens of gorgeous options in addition to the one above, including this cashmere one in orchid or turquoise, and this v-neck blouse tunic in 15 gorgeous colors.
  2. J.Jill – A great resource for tunics year-round in all sizes. (Talls and plus sizes, too.)
  3. Land’s End – Turtleneck, button-front, and pullover tunics in petite sizes.
  4. Boden – In fourth place because petites are only carried in sizes 2 – 10, but if you’re in that range you can nab darling tunics like this printed one.

Insomniac Sale Picks: Flat Ankle Boots

*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?*

Several people requested a few picks for flat ankle boots, so here we go:

softwalk_rocklin

Softwalk Rocklin Chelsea Boot – was $145, now $86.96 – $145.00
additional 20% off with code 20OFFSHOE

Truly flat ankle boots are extremely rare, but this one has a 1.5″ heel and slight platform, so should still be extremely comfortable and walkable. Such a classic style and shape. Available in this black with light sole, rust suede, sand suede, black suede, dark brown leather, and gray suede in U.S. sizes 5 – 12, including 2A and CD widths. Size availability varies by color.

miz mooz martin

Miz Mooz Martin – was $111.30, now $70.95
additional 20% off with code 20OFFSHOE

Slightly flatter with a 1″ heel, and a slightly higher shaft for more of a moto look. Miz Mooz is a great brand that makes lovely, comfortable shoes and these little suede booties look like winners to me. Lined with striped cotton, too! Available in this tan, as well as a greenish gray suede or denim blue suede in Euro sizes 36 – 41. Reviewers say they’re running a bit small, so if you’re between sizes, size up.

nine west orion

Nine West Orion – was $119, now $95.99 -$99
additional 20% off with code 20OFFSHOE

The dual texture won’t be for everyone, but there’s no denying this is a very sleek ankle boot that will work well for office outfits. With a 0.75″ heel it’s pretty darned close to flat, and gets very high marks from reviewers. Available in this black as well as a dark brown leather/suede combo in U.S. sizes 5 – 11. This style lacks the two-tone, but is a similar shape and available in wide widths.

mjus demaris

MJUS Demaris – was $274.98, now $$164.96 – $206.24
additional 20% off with code 20OFFSHOE

Spendy, yes, but oh my goodness so very gorgeous. With a 1.25″ heel and classic moto styling, these will be great for casual, rocker-ish outfits. Or pair them with a flirty dress for juxtaposition. Available in this taupe-y gray, black, brown and TEAL in Euro sizes 36 – 42. This boot is suede but similar style and less expensive. And these guys are similar and come in in wide widths.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for flat ankle boots:

  1. Zappos – Obvious, I know, but there were virtually zero brands who offered multiple, flat bootie options that I liked. Zappos has 220 pairs.
  2. Nordstrom – Lots of great options, but none on sale! These Munros are classic, and these burnished Franco Sartos are amazing.
  3. Nine West – One of the only brands with a good selection, but a little lacking in size variety.
