Much like the skinny jean, the skinny trouser is versatile and can take you from casual to corporate with a simple shoe swap. Skinny trousers generally come in ankle length or shorter; those that don't go higher than the widest part of your calf are best for the office (no pedal pushers, please). A flat front, straight fit pant looks the cleanest for the office, although Cubicle Chic does a great job with some relaxed fit trousers.
While these certainly aren't your traditional work pant, I did find some options online in a variety of prices.
This last pair I really like because of the color and how the sateen can transition for a night out on the town (a great alternative to a dress on freezing winter nights). I can totally picture myself in the j.crew pair with a pair of classic peep-toes and a feminine ruffled blouse.
Do you rock skinny trousers? How do you (or would you) style them for the office?
