Plaid Pixie

I hate work-pants-shopping as much as I hate shopping for jeans (for pretty much all the same reasons). However, there are a couple of stores where I’m able to find nicely-fitting pants – Anne Taylor and Banana Republic – without having to throw cash around. Plus, they carry petite sizes, which really helps. I recently tried on the Pixie line of pants at Old Navy and I have to say, I actually really like them (!)

While some people may not think “Old Navy”, when shopping for nice, work clothes. I’ve actually found quite a few staple items from there, that I’ve worn multiple times and have lasted. I do like their Rockstar line for jeans and now these Pixie pants are also a favorite. The pants fit great, look nicely-tailored and don’t break my bank. They carry them in quite a few different colors and styles, see here.

Some of the styles are sold in petite or ankle-length. However, I bought these on sale a couple of weeks back and ended up having to tuck the cuff in once, so that it would be a more flattering length on me. If you do end up with a regular size, you may not have to sew or hem it because the cuff will actually stay tucked in. I paired the pants with a light gray cable-knit sweater (from Old Navy as well), for a simple office look.
