+ Look for Less

10th Commandment: August 29

A reader asked for some recommendations for ponte pants.  They’re a great alternative to leggings if you want something with more structure to wear under long tops or sweater dresses.

Also, I’m in Montana enjoying the last of the summer, so today will be the blog’s Friday.  We will also be off Monday for Labor Day, back Tuesday.  Have a fun and safe weekend!

    do you think ponte pants are work appropriate? I want to be able to wear skinnier pants at work if possible but with structure like ponte

    Just a heads up, the links for both the plus-size and petite pant go to the NYDJ Jodie Pant.

    Belle, are you (shockingly) not a fan of J.Crew’s pixie pant? While I appreciate that it comes in short lengths and multiple neutrals, I can’t ever get it sized right to work on me and had always blamed my short, leg-muscley, pear shaped frame.
