Ask The Edit: In Need of Pants for Summer
May 31, 2017
My office has a strict no jeans policy and I need pants to wear on casual Friday. I went shopping but got overwhelmed by all the options, good and bad. Dresses aren’t an option because my office is kept at 58-degrees in the summer. (The supervisors spent their holiday bonuses on better A/C units last year. It’s great being the only woman engineer in the place.) Could you do one of those roundups you do? I feel like I just need 5 or 6 good options to look at.

Chilly offices are definitely a thing, I just didn’t realize there were men so dedicated to being cold that they would give up bonuses to work Arctic-like conditions. Regardless, there are a lot of great summer pant options out there, so let’s narrow it down a bit. Here are the styles that caught my eye.
Great color selection. The comments are very complementary of the fit and style.
A bit more structure than above. Love the color. They claim they’re wrinkle free and washable.
Unsure if these are lined. They come in nine colors.
They’re not jeans; they’re chambray. Also, Banana was the clear winner for pants selection.
A bolder choice, to be sure. Wear them with a structured white blouse and a green flat.
