Insomniac Sale Picks: Petite Office-friendly Pants with Pockets

*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 petite office-appropriate pants with pockets, so here we go:

petite navy trousers

Eddie Bauer Petite Curvy Stretch Twill Trouser – was $70, now $49

This is what Sarah is truly searching for: A petite work pant with top-entry pockets. I have to assume that most brands choose side-entry styles because they’re easier to manufacture, but dang, they suck if you’ve got hips! This is a mid-rise style designed for a figure with larger hips and a smaller waistline, but EB also offers a “slightly curvy” version that has less of a differential. The style shown above is available in this navy as well as mushroom, stone, or black in petite sizes 2- 20, some sizes on backorder. Size availability varies by color. Also available in regular, tall, and plus sizes.

petite ankle pant

J.Crew Petite Martie Pant – was $89.50, now $69.99
with code SCORE

In case you’re in the market for a slimmer pant, an ankle pant, or a pant that comes in fun colors, this mid- to low-rise crop is a J.Crew favorite. And it’s machine washable! Available in this turquoise as well as coral, ivory, pale gray, periwinkle, navy, black, seafoam, or poppy in petite sizes 000 – 12. Size availability varies by color. Also available in regular and tall sizes. This similar style is available in nearly as many colors in plus sizes.

high waist petite pant

Land’s End Petite 7 Day Trouser – was $39, now $27.30
with code RAINBOOT and PIN 4519

High waist fans, this one’s for you. Also machine washable, this cotton/poly blend pant gets high marks for comfort. Sounds like sizing can be a little wonky, though. Available in this black as well as tan, khaki, or navy in petite sizes 2 – 18. Size availability varies by color. Also available in regular, tall, plus, AND petite plus sizes.

cropped petite pant

Banana Republic Petite Straight Soft Pant – was $98, now $35
discount taken in cart

So we’ve got two traditional picks, and I wanted to include an equal number of trendy options, so here’s a soft, slouchy pant. It’s got a very subtle check pattern, and would be so chic for spring and summer wear. Available in petite sizes 00 -14. Here’s a similar style in regular and tall sizes, and another in plus sizes.

    Having trouble getting the $35 price for those very nice BR pants, even at checkout. Any advice? Thanks-
    EDITED: I called their # and the answer-er said that the discount was no longer in effect as of noon today, but she extended it to me if I placed the order with her. Done!
