My Mom is in town visiting, so today is my Friday, I’ll see you ladies on Monday.

Banana Republic Martin Fit Pant ($79)

I love white cotton pants with simple blouses and sweaters for casual Mondays or semi-casual dinners with friends.  Unfortunately, it’s difficult to find lined white pants these days, but if I wear a smooth, flesh-toned thong (Hanky Panky Bare are my favorite), I don’t have a problem.

Gap also offers a white cotton pant with a tab front, but it has a wider leg for a beachy, relaxed feel.  If you prefer a skinny pant, Michael Kors makes his skinny trousers in white sateen.  Ann Taylor makes a lovely pair of cotton trousers, and also a pair of ankle-length skinny pants (also in petite). Lastly, J.Crew makes their popular stretch cotton pants in white.

If you need a lined pair of white trousers, Lafayette 148 makes a lined trouser in all the basic colors.  If you need something under-$100, Anne Klein makes a lined white pant (also in petite).

Plus-size? The lined Anne Klein trouser comes in plus-size, as do these Jones New York trousers.  Tall?  Banana Republic makes a white trouser in tall lengths.

    I love the Martin pant! Great if you have an hourglass figure, they fit a small waist nicely, and of course love a lined trouser.

    Nice selection! I’ll be in the market for some new pants very soon, and I like the skinny ankle length variety.

The Find: An Affordable Work Dress
