Ask Belle: Mid-Price Winter-Weight Trousers
Oct 23, 2014
Typically – like you, a predictable patty in the winter with opaque tights with dresses/ skirts. But thinking about venturing into pants more this season. I like these, but not their price point. Would prefer to be $150 (if the pair is quality) or below. Any ideas for camel colors or other go to trousers for work?
It was so cold last year, I’m thinking about buying more trousers for this season as well. There comes a point where you have to ask if the skirt is worth the shivering. Here are a few suggestions for trousers in your price range:
My favorite winter trousers come in herringbone and tweed. They look great with sleek sweaters or silky blouses, and they are definitely warm. These trousers from Dillard’s are a good place to start. If you like a really wide pant, these tweed palazzo pants from Mango are for you. These Liz Claiborne trousers are an affordable option.
I only found one pair of trousers in a camel color that were affordable and heavier weight, these WHBM trousers. (Don’t worry, the gold belt is removable.) If it’s just the color you’re after, I also found these Jones New York straight leg trousers and these bootcut trousers from The Limited.
Another question that readers ask a lot is where to find trousers that are fully-lined. The Pendleton trousers in basic black are lined, as are these black Jones New York trousers. WHBM also lines some of their pants, including these chic charcoal trousers.
Lastly, if you’re looking to spend a bit on a good quality trouser, Lafayette 148 has the best selection of basics.
