I’ve been looking for dress pants for quite some time, and both J.Crew and Banana Republic have failed me. The petite J.Crew suiting in size 0 was WAY too big, and the Banana Republic Martin Fit in petite 00 was not only too big, but the fit was so bad that my tailor deemed them unalterable. So, I finally gave Ann Taylor a try.
Ann Taylor recently changed the names of their pant fit offerings, so I went for the “Modern” fit, which is supposed to be the equivalent to their “Lindsay” fit. The “Modern” has a lower rise and slimmer fit. I really loved the look of these charcoal gray striped dress pants, and ordered them in size petite 00.
I loved the look, and the length was perfect for my 3 inch heels, but the fit wasn’t quite right.
I really liked these pants, and the fit was closer than any other dress pant I’d tried on before, so I took these to my tailor to see what she could do. She took in the waist and slimmed the leg/thigh, and now my pants are perfect!
I’ve officially named Ann Taylor as my resource for dress pants! Tiny petites looking for dress or work pants that can be easily altered should definitely check out Ann Taylor in size petite 00.
