I think ponte is my favorite workwear material. It’s comfortable and breathable, and even when it’s low priced it still disguises well as high quality. Usually I’ll find it in a blazer or a dress, but these pants seem to be a real jackpot. They have a lot of elements that I really like in pants — high waist, elastic band (woo!), cropped length, and of course, black. I also am completely in love with pintucked creases. They lengthen the leg and add interest but don’t need ironing. At $168 at Shopbop, these are a little pricier than what I usually allow myself, but for all of the listed reasons, I think I need to own them. Ponte Pintucked Pants
A plus-size option is from NYDJ at Zappos.
