We love dressing down a good pair of formal pants. A plain tee shirt or tank top tucked into a pair of dressy trousers or silk slacks is always an unexpected look that’s appropriate for the business casual office, brunch with friends or after work drinks with coworkers.
This spring, our pant of choice is the updated tuxedo trouser. While our man-friends have been rocking these to black tie events for years, ladies haven’t gotten much of a chance to show what we can do with a good pair. Fortunately, they are universally flattering (the stripe down the side helps elongate the leg) so tuxedo pants will soon become your favorite go-to when you want to get a little fancier than denim. With designers such as Tibi, Halston Heritage, DVF and Elizabeth & James, as well as lower priced options from Club Monaco, J.Crew, and even Forever 21 jumping on board the trend, you’ll have plenty to choose from.
