The New Perfect Pants for Work
Ann Taylor pants
The perfect pair of black or khaki pants is an office essential. But the two colors can be even better together: These pants feature slimming, tuxedo-like side stripes and fun, contrasting waistbands. Pairing them with a crisp white button-down is a chic no-brainer; try a jewel-toned top for an unexpected twist.
