Basics Week: The Perfect Navy Pants

Apr 27, 2021

When I’m working at the Legislature, running to the dry cleaner is not something that I have time to do.  And while I can use Dryel to dry clean clothes at home, I would rather just wash everything.  (I accidentally washed a suit jacket last week, and it feels like a crisis averted.)  So when I spotted these sleek navy pants and saw they were machine washable, I was sold.

 

These Meraki wide leg pants are perfect for work or work from home.  They’re comfortable and easy to wear.  They also have a great drape to them, which helps them look dressier than their price point would suggest.  They also come in black.

Meraki also makes several styles of pants, all of which are machine washable.  Their flare leg pants have a tab front, so you won’t get that weird bump in your shirt from the snap when you wear them.  Their ankle-length slim-leg trousers are also worth a look.

Also, if you’re a person who prefers dresses to pants, Meraki’s basic wrap dress has great style and is totally machine washable.  It’s perfect for work travel.

    Hi- Any thoughts on the fit? Amazon says they run small, and I’m in between sizes. Thanks!

  2. TheLOOP says:

    Same question on fit. Did you find them tight in the waist like the reviews say?

      Because of the high waisted-ness, I sized up. The size up was not as loose as anticipated, so I’m glad I did.

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]

How I Combat Stink (and Stress Sweat)

It’s happened to all of us: You’re walking into a meeting and you catch a whiff of something. A slight odor. A bad smell. And you wonder, “Is that me?” You want to surreptitiously check that that unsavory aroma isn’t you, but you can’t do that here. So you just keep your arms at your […]

The Range: Lounge/Travel Sets

If the pandemic did one thing for women, it brought back sweatpants as acceptable attire. But then, fashion decided that we couldn’t wear regular sweat pants, we needed to wear fancy sweat pants. And while it would be easy to disparage the ideal of luxury sweatpants made for chic, casual wear…have you felt how soft […]
