The blogger at StyleBee introduced me to these amazing Elizabeth Suzann “work pants” that I asked for on my birthday. These pants are really great! I’m so glad they fit well because the process was truly slow. Each pair of pants are made to order by hand in the USA. Mine took 8 weeks for them to sew up and ship. It came with a handwritten letter and wrapped in the most beautiful marble wrapping paper I’ve ever seen. All seams on these pants are sewn with intent to last a lifetime and the fabrics are selected to get better with age. I love that it is high waisted enough to wear with crop tops but fitted enough to drape longer shirts over the belly area.
These pants do convey an unconventional silhouette in that you must feel comfortable with accentuating curves and that means maybe looking larger than your actual size. I do this all time with oversized shift dresses and boxy tomboy shirts and find this aesthetic far more interesting than the typical body con / wrap dress silhouettes that you find everywhere. Stylish does not have to be “sexy”. There’s an interesting debate about this topic on Gretchen’s Closet here, but anyway… I digress.
My favorite detail on these pants is the large moon shaped side pockets! They are roomy enough to fit my pager, cell phone, pens, and a notepad — everything I need during a long work day.
