Skinnies for work

Ok. I love my skinny jeans, but jeans are a no-no at my job (unless it’s a casual Friday and I just happen to be in my office, which never happens since I’m always working out at my clients’ sites). But I figure I can make skinnies work wear as long as they are trousers not jeans, right? So I did a little search for some great cigarette pants that I can sport 9 to 5 (or 8 to 5....or 8 to 10 for that matter, lol. We accountants work some long hours!).

First up to bat: I’m dying over these Catherine Malandrino cigarette pants shown above. Gorgeous! But just in case those aren't quite perfect for you, I’ve come up with a few alternatives here.

Elie Tahari Trudy Pants, $134 @ Zappos

And drum roll for one of my favorite options (I think these are the perfect length!):

Oh and PS. Please wear these with some sky-high heels or booties!! Reserve your flats for Friday ladies; these cigarette pants need the extra oomph for a killer look! But beware, this is the fashionable alternative to a “power suit” so you may feel the desire to do some serious butt-kicking in this outfit. :)

  3. ooo cute! I wear some "denim like" skinny from BCBG a few months ago... they were on sale too. Going to your next post, I pair them with an oversized blazer (for some off the body volume) and my chunky necklaces :)
