One new work basic that I have been enjoying is J.Crew’s Kate Straight-Leg Pant in Four-Season Stretch, which is available in nine colors, and classic, petite, and tall “fits.” The material (64% polyester/31% viscose/5% elastane) has just enough stretch to both be comfortable to wear and maintain its shape. While the straight-leg silhouette might not seem appealing to those with athletic builds or curves, the stretch in the material helps improve the fit. And the high-waist and ankle-length are especially short-legs friendly.
While this pant is technically machine washable, with the amount of viscose in the material I have only been hand-washing and air-drying to avoid shrinkage and fading.
