Hello Fashionistas! Dress slacks are a modern-day staple of the working woman's closet. Paired with a sweater, a matching jacket, or a fitted blouse, dress slacks provide a professional, no fuss look.
Here are some tips to keep in mind when shopping for the perfect pair of slacks.
Tip# 1: Pleated slacks are rarely flattering, so opt for flat-front slacks. Dress slacks should have pockets that are on the seam to create a streamlined look. Pockets on the back should be small and unobtrusive.
Tip #2: Opt for a wide leg versus a tapered one, as they are more versatile and will be timeless from season to season. The wide-leg pant will help create height and hide a myriad figure issues.
Tip #3: Be sure that they are the right length-near the floor with your average work heels on. The wrong length will make your legs look choppy and make the pants look cheap.
Tip #4: Purchase the best dress slacks you can afford. Lightweight wool is three-season. Heavier wool or flannel keeps you warm in the winter.
Tip #5: Think dark colors to avoid having to dry clean as often. Plus a good pair of dark, well fitting dress slacks will be the perfect staple piece to add color and texture.
