Feminine Differential - Ankle Pants

Pants / trousers have evolved from the average men's look to the comfier and classier culottes, striped pants, wide-legged pants, lace-up empire cropped pants, ruffled tie-waist peg leg pants and more. The transformation of pants from marking masculinity to embracing the feminine has been tremendous. Gone are the days that you cannot look as feminine in trousers as in dresses.

Modern-day women can definitely wear pants and look like a lady at the same time. Here’s a round-up of ideas to flaunt your femininity while wearing trousers at work. 

Tailor-Made - Wear ankle pants cut to fit your figure. A side zip is flattering as shown above.

Tops - Wear a feminine blouse in a bold color or innovate neckline. The Talbots Sabrina Gingham top is a perfect example of a feminine, even retro, neckline. 

Wear feminine shoes - Flats or heels.  Heels will play a key role in exhibiting your femininity while wearing trousers.

Accessorize - Make your outfit look feminine with the help of accessories including a statement ring, eye catching choker, chain necklace, and pearls. In addition to that, you can try cute and eye catching bags or clutches.

The stripe top is is Talbots, "STRIPE GATHERED SLEEVE TOP" and the pants above are Talbots, "CHATHAM ANKLE PANTS".  The sling back pumps are "BCBGeneration Henaya Slingback Pumps" from Macys'.  

Susan at her wonderful fashion blog, SusanAfter60, features this stripe top and talked about how good this combination works for her:

White ankle-length jeans are my first choice for much of the spring and summer. Blue and white will always be a favorite color combination.

  1. A few T friends have said that they don't do trousers as a rule. Given all the styles available, I find this an interesting style choice. Maybe it's about picking the trousers that look right and feel good on you.
