Recently, I’ve been lusting over these pants. I tried them on in Bloomingdale’s last week, but the size didn’t work. The fit was a bit slimmer than usual, so I had to order up a size. Then, I stumbled across these babies. At $30 a pop (50% off sale), this version was a no-brainer.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m all for quality. I notice when fabrics are less substantial, patterns don’t match up, and when seams aren’t straight and neat. I partly blame my mother for pointing out all of these details to me as a child, however my perfectionist Type A personality probably doesn’t help either. This save version is good for budget minded people. Theory makes a wool version with a matching jacket. The quality of Theory is always on point.
I paired my budget plaid pants with a navy cashmere sweater, statement pearl necklace, and bright blue suede pumps.
