I found the perfect slimming black pant! I went to Nordstrom on the very last day of the Anniversary Sale, and just my luck it was completely picked over. I didn’t get my act together this year. But having lugged Rex all the way there, and since he was in great spirits, I took the opportunity to shop a little for fall. I live in denim by day but when I have an event or important meeting I often felt like I was missing the perfect skinny black pant in my wardrobe. Enter this sleek silhouette from Rag & Bone. Sometimes a tight pant like this can be hit or miss on me but these are so flattering–and super comfy! I like that they don’t have pockets and zips up in the black for that streamlined, clean look. Perfect for styling in so many ways and pairing back to your favorite blouses and sweaters. They’re also a great wrinkle free option and have a nice amount of give which makes them ideal for sitting behind a desk all day, perfect for commuters, or a great travel pant.
Sizing Tip | Runs true to size. I would take your normal Rag & Bone jean size (I did) or size down if you’re in-between sizes / wanting a tighter look.
As part of my third semi-professional look of the week (you can see the first look here, second here)–I paired this pant with a fun ruffled blouse that’s still conservative and totally what I would wear to the office. When I worked at an ultra-conservative investment firm I would keep my looks professional but add some touch of personality and style with the cuts and silhouettes. Top with a cargo jacket for evening or those cooler mornings. Loving the pocket detailing on this one (also high on my wish-list is this one in linen).
Additional blouse styles that won’t break the bank…
Thank you to Nordstrom for collaborating on this post.
