The Best Wool Flannel Pants for Women to Wear to Work

The Best Wool Flannel Pants for Women

2017 Update: We still think these are some awesome wool flannel pants for women — but sadly most are sold out at this point! Check out our latest roundup of the best warm women’s dress pants for the office

Sure, we all know what basics professional women are supposed to have in their closets, but if you’re buying one for the first time or replacing one you’ve worn into the ground, it can be a pain to find exactly the right incarnation in stores. In “The Hunt,” we search the stores for a basic item that every woman should have.

We haven’t talked about wool trousers for years, so I thought we’d discuss winter weight wool pants. Have you bought any lately? Which brands do you love best (for warmth and fit)? Do you prefer pants with linings, or do you often wear silk long johns or a full leg shaper (e.g., Spanx) beneath, negating the importance of the lining? [Read more…]

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Open-Front Cardigan

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

BCBGMAXAZRIA Open-Front CardiganI really like the way this cardigan straddles the line between a sweater and a jacket. The strong shoulders and lapels, as well as the curved hem and fitted details in the back are lovely and blazer-ish, but it’s got the comfort and warmth of wool, as well as an interesting variation in the width of the knit (particularly on the back) that you just wouldn’t get with a suiting material. Even better, it’s 50% off — was $228, now $114 on sale at Lord & Taylor, which is in the midst of its Anniversary Sale. Available in black and gray in all sizes as of this AM.

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Milly Les Halles SweaterThe ascot/bow seems to be coming back in a big way, and this cashmere and wool sweater shows it off in a really classic way. Love the ribbed panels and slim fit, and love the details — the slight pouf to the shoulders, the ribbed trimming — fabulous. It’s $245 at Neiman Marcus.  Les Halles Sweater

Elie Tahari - Montana Jacket (Spring Navy) - Apparel 6pm.com has a number of blazers and fall jackets on sale right now, including this simple wool pinstriped blazer from Elie Tahari. Love that they’ve styled it with black, showing that yes, you can wear navy with black — and it looks to be an all-around classic blazer. Oh — and even though the color is called “Spring Navy,” we’re going to walk on the wild side and say you can wear navy year-round. The blazer was $398, now marked 40% off to $238.80 at 6pm.com.

Tuesday’s TPS Report: Super 120s banquette dress

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Super 120s banquette dressOK: Let’s all agree to ignore the styling (unless you have something really witty to say, in which case, bring it on).  Still:  this is a fabulous dress.  Love the sleeves, the darts in the “fitted bodice,” the slight A-line to the skirt — and the fact that it comes in this lovely blue, as well as two different colors of gray, black, and even a navy pinstripe.  Fabulous.  It’s $178 at JCrew.com ($188 for the pinstripe), in regulars and petites.  Super 120s banquette dress
