Work pants can sometimes be hard to find for females. If you've ever tried on a pair of thick, starchy, itchy polyester pants in an attempt to find your take on business casual you know what I mean. They can't be too tight, but no one wants pants that leave them without any sort of shape. A couple of years ago I figured out that Banana Republic is a place that I can always count on when I need to find a new pair of pants for the office. The first pair I purchased were sky blue. Since then I've added a pair of gray slacks, and now these to my wardrobe. I really need some khaki pants, but the lavender looked so much like spring that I couldn't resist. Banana Republic's pants are categorized by cut (Ryan, Avery, Logan...). I like the Ryan or Avery pants best because the length is shorter (this means I don't have to wear heels).
For these photos I paired my lavender pants with an Opening Ceremony top that I got on sale from Saks Fifth Avenue. This pink top is no longer on sale at Saks, but I was able to find it on sale for less than $100 at a couple other retailers. It's also available in white. I like the Peter Pan collar and the peplum hem.
I’m really loving pink and white tops right now, so here are some other options for work that are just as adorable.
