Update: Plus sizes of these reader-favorite pants are marked to $209 (50% off!) in the 2020 Nordstrom Thanksgiving Sale.
Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
I don’t often feature a lot of pants here (beyond our roundups of washable pants and the like) because — honestly — they all look kind of lousy on the screen. These pants are no different, again if I’m being honest — but they are super, super highly rated at Nordstrom.
In fact, there are a TON of Lafayette New York pants that are highly rated in petite, plus, tall and regular sizes. Numerous customers sing the praises of their durability, comfort, and wrinkle resistant properties, as well as their form-fitting shape, and — hold the phone — a waist that fits properly. Nice.
The pictured pants are available in four colors, size 0-18, regular and petites, for $238. Lafayette 148 New York ‘Irving’ Stretch Wool Pants
