I thought that when I left my 9 to 5 office job, I would be done with work wear. Not true. Surprisingly, there have been quite a few instances in my career as a full-time blogger that called for office-appropriate dressing; meetings, presentations and interviews, just to name a few. While I'm all for looking business appropriate, I literally cannot handle my life when said work-wear is uncomfortable - it's distracting, and dampens my confidence. I've been on the search for a comfortable office-appropriate pant for years, and have finally found them in the Iconic Pants from Reitmans.
You guys know that Reitmans is my go-to when shopping for pants, since they have petite sizing. The Iconic Pant is no exception; with its stretchy fabric, it actually helps to sculpt and shape your leg! Add the fact that they're pull-on and come in petite sizes (!!) is a huge bonus for me. I wanted to add a bit of variety into my work-wear pants, so I chose a faint pinstripe and I love how this little detail can elevate the look from your basic black pant. Paired with a loose sweater with a bell sleeve, this outfit is a great option for office-casual, and something that I would feel comfortable enough in to wear all day! I'm also confident that these pants can be easily dressed up with a crisp white blouse and a blazer for a more formal setting.

Seriously though, I never thought that I would be a fan of a pinstripe pant but they are now on my wardrobe radar! I love how the subtle lines helps us short gals to look taller - especially when paired with some basic heels. It's amazing how sometimes even the simplest of details can make the biggest impact.
What do you guys think? What do you look for in work-wear? Do you work in an environment that requires business dressing? Let me know!
