I’ve been searching for the perfect black pants for the last 5 years. Something comfortable that keeps its shape and isn’t denim. Any suggestions?

 

Hi Michelle! Finding the perfect black pants is a struggle I think we’ve all been through, but don’t fret – there are lots of options out there to suit your needs! To balance comfort and structure, you’ll want to focus on finding a fabrication that works best for you. Check out a few of these examples!

The paperbag style pant is an effortless option for a casual workday that easily transitions to weekends. With a high linen content in these pants, they’ll be lightweight enough for the Houston humidity. Although linen can wrinkle easily, these are created from a linen / rayon blend that’s common in hot-weather wear and resists creases so you can keep a comfy and polished look, all day long. 

 

Another excellent option is our Rafaella trousers – a personal fave in my own workday wardrobe. Don’t fear the polyester in the pants, it’s blended with rayon and nylon so it will keep its shape, wick moisture, and remain perfectly professional.

 

Pro Tip: Linen/rayon blends resist creases so you can keep a comfy polished look all day long.
