The 9-to-5 Staple
As a fit model (designers test and perfect clothes on her body), Helen Powers, 54, knows her inseams, and these trousers (Alice + Olivia, $253) aced her comfort test. Instead of allover fullness (fattening!), legs strategically widen below the knee. Jacket, CH Carolina Herrera, $620. Shirt, Moschino Cheap and Chic, $395. Necklace and pendant, Irene Neuwirth. Briefcase, Coach.
