Insomniac Sale Picks: Colorful Plus-size Dress 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?*

Jessica requested a few picks for plus-size dress pants in colors other than black, brown, gray, or navy, so here we go:

roamans chloe pant

Roamans Chloe Pant – was $53.93, now $22.93

A simple, classic trouser but done up in rich, non-traditional colors. Love this rosy burgundy, but you can also grab this pair in purple or marine blue as well as basic black. These sit at the natural waist and have a slight boot cut in the leg. Available in sizes 12W – 24W. New York & Company is a great source for colorful pants in regular sizes.

lena pant lane bryant

Lena Straight Leg Pant – was $69.95, now $39.99

LOVE these. Why aren’t there more teal pants on the market? Such a great alternative to navy, especially for anyone whose wardrobe relies on the jewel tone family. And such a great classic cut with top-entry pockets that won’t wing out. Available in sizes 14 – 24, including a few petite lengths/sizes. This slouchy pair comes in teal in sizes XS – XL. Prefer a skinnier cut? This skinny Lane Bryant pair comes in teal sateen.

eloquii kady ankle pant

Eloquii Kady Fit Ankle Pant – was $78, now $46.80
with code MOTO

I will admit that the mere thought of wearing ankle pants right now gives me shivers, but not everyone lives on the tundra. And at this price, these could be a save-for-spring purchase. This fun rusty orange is one of the more subdued colors for the Kady. You can choose from hot pink, white, red, cobalt, green, or purple as well as traditional black, navy, or khaki. Available in sizes 14 – 24. Size availability varies by color. This similar style is available in sizes 00 – 16.

woman within ponte pant

Woman Within Ponte Knit Pant – was $35, now $29.77 – $34.77

Ponte may be too casual for some offices, but in this wide-leg cut and worn with a dressy, untucked top they’ll pass muster in many. They’re available in this purple as well as teal, black, charcoal, and brown in sizes 14W – 36W. If you’re looking for casual, colorful pants instead, this similar style comes in a whopping 22 colors. Love the purple but want a dressier fiber? These Pendleton worsted wool trousers have a very wide leg, but come in a gorgeous royal purple in 14W – 24W.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for colorful plus-size dress pants:

  1. Woman Within – Not all will be work-appropriate, but they’ve certainly got lots of colorful pant options in addition to the one above.
  2. Lane Bryant – More fun options on the site, including these straight-leg pants in burgundy or eggplant.
  3. Eloquii – The colorful pant jackpot. These ankle pants come in five great colors besides neutrals, including red, green, and cobalt.

Insomniac Sale Picks: Dark Florals

*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?*

Cindy requested a few picks for dark floral print items, so here we go:

dark floral pencil skirt

Bisou Bisou Floral Scuba Knit Pencil Skirt – was $44, now $24.99

I’m not much into florals myself these days but dang, that’s a pretty skirt. Most of the dark florals you’ll see on the market are all-over prints, but I love the bold asymmetry of this one. Available in sizes XS – XL. This dark floral slim skirt comes in sizes 14- 28, and this one is on a white background but has a similar print style in sizes 14W – 22W.

dark floral long sleeve dress

Nally & Millie Floral Dress – was $98, now $59.99

Depending on your height and leg length, “dress” might be a bit of a misnomer. But this would still make a great tunic, worn over skinnies or leggings. And if you prefer more subdued prints, this low-contrast dark floral will be right up your alley. Available in sizes XS – XL. This dress is more fitted and higher contrast, but gorgeous and in sizes 14W – 24W.

dark floral print top

Miraclebody Jeans BFF Floral Still Life Top – was $82, now $49.99

This brand has some built-in shapewear stuff going on, but honestly I just love this colorful but dark, slightly abstract floral print. And the top shape is a great one; Slight high-low hem, flared around the hips, scoop neckline. Available in sizes S -L. This similar top is available in sizes 0X – 5X.

dark floral dress

eShakti Vibrant Blooms Dress – was $89.95, now $53.95

The cut of this dress may feel a little Boho, which means it will be a fun choice for spring and summer. But if you’d like to make it more classic or conservative – and winter-friendly – add black tights, boots, and a sleek jacket or blazer. Available in sizes 0 -36W. Sleeve type and hem length can be customized. This print also available in a palazzo pant for $41.95. Looking for less Boho in your dark floral dress? I also love this fit-and-flare style for only $30.99, and this similar style in 14W – 24W.

 

Honorable mentions:

 

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for dark florals:

  1. ASOS – Definitely where I’d start. Love this sleek jacket and this plus-sized pencil dress.
  2. Modcloth – Loads of fun options, including some plus sizes. How cute is this long-sleeved fit-and-flare dress?
  3. Nordstrom – Especially great in the plus-size department with picks like this floaty floral blouse.

Insomniac Sale Picks: Petite Classic Blazers

*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?*

Kendra requested a few picks for petite classic blazers so here we go:

ann klein blazer

Anne Klein Petite Single-Button Tropical-Wool Blazer – was $129, now $89.99
plus an additional 10% off on 1/8 with code SALE

Tropical wool is such a fabulous fiber, and I love the simple, shaped cut of this blazer. Plus charcoal gray is a versatile shade that will work year-round. (If you prefer black, this one is similar in shape.) This style is shorter in the length overall, and may work better with skirts and dresses than pants. Available in petite sizes 0P – 14P. Also in regular sizes 0 -16. This seasonless wool blazer is a two-button style, but comes in charcoal in sizes 12W petite to 22W petite.

banana republic petite blazer

Banana Republic Lightweight Wool Two-Button Suit Blazer – was $198, now $138.60
with code BRBLUE

If you prefer a two-button style, this slightly longer blazer is a chic, modern option. I know some folks shy away from navy since it has preppy connotations, but it pairs beautifully with jewel tones, olive green, charcoal, and cognac leather accents. Available in petite sizes 00 -14. Also in regular and tall. For a shorter, slimmer fit in navy, try this Inset Waist Suit Jacket. This two-button style is available in navy as well as charcoal, black, or tan in sizes 12W petite – 22W petite.

kasper petite pinstripe blazer

Kasper Petite Dot Pinstripe Suit Jacket – was $99, now $54.14

This style is a polyester blend, which makes it a good option for those who find wool itchy. The color looks a bit blue here, but is listed as black with khaki pinstripes. Classic cut, but fun details. Available in petite sizes 2 – 14. This similar style is available in 00P – 16P, though not currently on sale.

black petite blazer

Kasper Petite Peak Collar Crepe Suit Jacket – was $99, now $64.99

Another non-wool option, this one with a slightly higher stance and single-button closure. Fully lined with a shaped design. Available in petite sizes 2 – 16. I just couldn’t find any one-button petite plus blazers, but this style is closure-less and available in black in sizes 12W petite – 22W petite.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for petite classic blazers:

  1. Ann Taylor – Check the suiting section for classic cuts like this all-season stretch two-button blazer. AT carries 00 – 16.
  2. J.Crew – Just a handful of styles, but lots of fabulous colors. This stand-collar style comes in red and turquoise in addition to more subdued shades.
  3. Talbots – Great blazer options in petite and petite plus sizes.
