The Perfect Pair of Black Pants for Work or Play

Posted on 1/04/2013 in Style
(updated January 2017)

A good work pant is essential in every wardrobe. They must be comfortable, stylish and versatile. Any personal stylist will say that a good work pant should work with virtually any top or blouse that you have in your wardrobe. Even more so during a pregnancy when your wardrobe is sometimes limited.  

How to choose the best pair of black maternity pants for work?  Let's start with the fabric.

Ponte (or ponti or Ponte de Roma) is a double knit interlock fabric or heavy jersey fabric. It has firmness and holds it shape but still has a bit of give and maintains comfort. These are commonly used for treggings and are popular for travelling as they are quite wrinkle and crease resistant.

Linen is a natural fabric and is perfect for warm weather.

weekend pants
For weekends try soft fluid jersey pants in a loose fit relaxed style.

An essential legging with piped detail and you are ready for a casual weekend
Evenings call for something special - try coated jeans.

Bengalin (or bengaline) is a woven fabric. It has a very fine crosswise rib with a slight sheen and is matte on the reverse side. Stretch bengaline is often found in maternity clothing due to its structure and stretch for comfort and ease. It does have a little swish when you walk and is best suited for cool or dry climates.
