No matter what line of work you’re in, chances are a pair of black slim-fit, clean-cut trousers is hanging in your closet. Even more likely, you wear them a handful of times every month. And while it’s with good reason this pant style is a go-to—it's classic, it's adaptable for most dress codes, and it looks polished, always—if that’s as adventurous as your 9-to-5 closet gets, you’re missing out on another silhouette that’s equally as versatile.
High-waisted pleated pants with a bit more movement and swing have been a favorite of fashion girls for a while, but we understand the look can be intimidating for some. After all, any time a piece of clothing makes a statement—which these roomier power pants do—it will divide those who want to dive right into the trend from those who are only willing to dip a toe. Luckily, options for both lie ahead in the form of tailored, professional, (slightly) directional, and bold office-ready pants.
