*I have partnered with Banana Republic on this post. As always though, all opinions are my own. Read more here.*
Knowing how to dress for my size has always been a talent I am thankful to possess. If I were to tell you how much I weighed you would be shocked (hopefully). I know what to play up and I know what to camoflauge. I’m a mom of 2 and I work out daily but I’m still 35 and I have learned wearing clothing that is built well will take you further than a pair of discount pants any day.
And if you are like me and spend too much money dressing your children, leaving you behind with a less desirable fall wardrobe fund you need pieces built well and versatile. So that you can accidentally have that capsule wardrobe you have been eyeing on Pinterest.
Enter the Devon-Fit Stretch Legging from Banana Republic. They have the most amazing stretch that will last the full day as well as the next if you so choose to do so. Judgement free zone momma. They are slimming in all the right places and do such a wonderful job of smoothing just where you need it. Not to mention they go with everything and they come in bi-stretch, velvet, leather, and denim so multiple fabrics and colors available. On a side note. They do run a size too small, so I would recommend sizing up for the perfect fit.
Besides the flattering fit, the fact that they can be worn to work, date night, errands, or PTA meetings is a plus. I love clothing pieces that are versatile. Keep scrolling to see how I style these pants for different occasions.
Every now and then I like to throw the teachers for a loop and show up not looking like a hot mess. So I paired my Devon Fit with a white shirt and flats for a perfectly pulled together outfit. No ironing needed which is also plus.
Most days I’m a t-shirt and tennis shoes girl. So these were the perfect pair with my favorite tennis shoes for those casual days around town.
These pants are perfect for the office. They are tailored and professional yet still trendy. Pair them with pumps and a blazer and you will without a doubt close that deal.
After you close that deal, grab hubs and hit the town for a date night. Add some clunky heals and a cropped top you are ready to go. Yes this is about as cropped as I will ever go.
Another nice thing about these pants are that they are on the thicker side so if and when it decides to get a little cooler, you don’t have to worry about wind blowing through. These would also look amazing with knee high boots for extra warmth. Don’t forget to grab this Reversible Italian Wool-Blend Poncho it comes in 6 colors and has fringe so its a fall/winter must. I am wearing it here on the grey side and you can see the blue is peaking through.
