Over the past few months, many of you have expressed that you love to see work wear on The Teacher Diva. And while I am no longer in an office per se, I do appreciate a good pair of “work pants”.
After teaching for several years, I have accumulated a few styles that I consider my “go-to” pants. My co workers and I would joke about how hard it is to find a pair of pants that are 1. flattering and 2. easy to move in while chasing a classroom of 6 year olds. Though I’m in a much different environment now, I still have opportunities where a good pair of black pants come in handy.
This pair is the Avery Tailored Crop Pant from Banana Republic. I have always shopped at Banana for both work wear and casual weekend pieces, and find myself pursuring their “new arrivals” almost daily (I guess signing up for the Gap card was worth it, ha!). What I like most about the Avery Style, is the slim, straight fit. They aren’t your typical “skinny fit” but they are slimming and I found them to be flattering in both heels or flats. Think of them as a modern update to the cropped pant. Seriously, a year round staple!
If you’re looking for a traditional “skinny pant” you need to try the Sloan Slim Ankle Pant. I also have this style and love the tighter fit around the ankle. This style looks great with an oversized sweater, tall boots or flats.
I leave for Fashion Week on Friday, and I can’t wait to share with you all the newest collection from Banana Republic. I will be at their presentation, so be sure to follow along via snapchat [the teacher diva] and Instagram to see behind the scenes and my favorite looks for Fall 2016.
Thanks for reading! xx
