I got a Land’s End catalogue in the mail yesterday, billing “Zero Risk Chinos.” Basically, they’re offering free shipping and free returns for a limited time. The chinos come in a wide range of colors and cuts, and the styling is very cute and almost reminiscent of J. Crew. But with pants at $60 a pair, this is obviously not J. Crew.
I’m particularly taken with the slim ankle chinos. I’ve been wearing The Limited’s Drew Twill Ankle Pants weekly since early spring, and they’ve been a great warm weather staple. I love that the length works for both heels and flats–as a petite girl I’m perpetually struggling with tailoring issues, because getting the right hem length can be tricky. I may need to take advantage of this Land’s End deal to broaden my ankle pant horizons and explore color ranges beyond black and khaki.
Here’s the slim ankle chino from Land’s End in Mazarine Blue. Love the pants, and also the great tan pumps.
