When I first started working at Macy’s (and learned that jeans weren’t in dress code), I realized that I needed a pair of basic work pants. I wasn’t into slacks or loose polyester bottoms, so I headed to J.Crew and Old Navy. J.Crew is known for their classic professional clothing, but their pants had a weird fit that didn’t suit my body type. Instead of purchasing $100 pants that I didn’t love, I went to Old Navy and found the most amazing pair in the form of their Pixie Mid-Rise Ankle Pants (petite size of course). The petite pants hit right at my ankle and are the softest, most comfortable pair of stretchy bottoms. I love how they come in multiple colors and patterns that rotate throughout the seasons. After I purchased my polka dot and navy pants, I bought a pair of black ones and khakis. One of my jobs required I wear khaki pants with our issued polo shirts and I knew that the Pixies would be perfect. I love styling them with loose blouses for work and camis or basic tank tops for school.
