Having a fantastic fitting pant is a game changer, life changer, wardrobe enhancer. You name it, it means greatness. Without further adieu, here are the best fitting pants right now…
Kobi Halperin ‘Alexandra’ Slim Leg Pants
I am beyond pleased to have this stretchy navy goodie on this ‘best fitting pants’ list. The Kobi Halperin slim pant is basically a skinny ponte pant, but in navy blue. It runs a teensy bit small, so because I am between a size 4 and size 6, I went with a size 6. The whole pant stretches amazingly, but you will need that size up on the waist band.
How To Wear: You can wear it with flats, heels and boots. It can go from work to play depending on your shoes and top. When choosing your top, you may want to go longer and skip the not-so-tight tops as it almost functions like a legging.
J.Crew’s Sunday Slim Chino
The comfort of this J.Crew Sunday Slim Chino is amazing. Everyone I put into it, loves the look, fit, and comfort. My clients are so delighted I finally found a baggier pant I can put my stamp of approval on. One note though, it stretches out, so make sure it is pretty snug when you buy it. Nothing a warm wash won’t fix, but people have complained about it stretching out. If you buy it too big it can go from a ‘boyfriend’ pant to a ‘grandpa’ pant.
How To Wear: I adore this pant for casual wear as well as dressing it up with heels. I often pair the golden brandy color with gold pointy toe 2-inch heels. For casual wear, I wear ballet flats, but you could also do a slim sneaker as long as you don’t wear socks. Generally, you want to tuck your shirt in with this one, or pair it with shorter tops and sweaters.
This stretchy, yet structured ankle pant from Classiques is fantastic for women with straighter hips and less defined waists. (Aka not great for hourglass figures.) I adore the flattering fit, the stretchy, yet thick fabric and high quality construction.
How To Wear: You can wear it with flats and heels and will work well for work and play. You will probably like it best with slightly longer tops and not-so-tight tops as it almost functions like a legging.
My ultimate favorite black ponte pants were by Burberry. There is a deep sadness among my clients and I that we can no longer find this pant. Sigh. There are still other options out there. This Two by Vince Camuto pant will not be as amazing as our Burberry friend, but they do the job we need a black ponte pant to do.
How To Wear: You can wear it with flats, heels and boots. It can go from work to play depending on your shoes and top. You may still like a longer top with these pants because it is such a skinny pant, but I often pair them with tall boots and tuck in a breezy silk blouse.
