Blue Ankle Pants

Anyone who has been following my fashion posts for long knows that comfort is just as important to me as style, because if I'm not comfortable in my clothes, I won't wear them.  That's why when I found these pull-on blue ankle pants at J.C. Penney, I knew that if they looked good when I tried them on, they would be going home with me.


The pants are made of a stretch twill material with an elastic waist.  There are no pockets, zippers, or buttons, yet the material is nice and thick so I don't have to worry about 'covering my butt' like I do when I wear leggings.


Because of the stretchy material and lack of buttons and zippers, these pants are super comfortable.  They have a nice slim fit, so they are super flattering.

If I chose to wear a longer top or sweater with these pants, I would have a nice smooth front and back, because there would not be any bulges from the pants protruding through.


The pants are slim fitting through out the leg, but they are not skin tight like skinny jeans.  They are a true ankle length on my body,  touching just a few inches above the ankle.

Ankle pants look great with flats or heels, short shirts or long shirts.  They are so versatile and easy to wear.  Since it's still warm, I chose to wear nude sandals and a short sleeveless top with my new pants.  But because of the dark navy color, I can see wearing these pants into the fall by just adding booties and a longer sweater or tunic.


For accessories I added a gold bracelet, a peach stone pendant necklace, and I carried a nude bag.


I received this top from Stitch Fix last June.  It has a sheer inlet panel in both the front and back of the top.  I get so many compliments every time I wear it.  People seem to always comment on the pattern.


 Even though I just purchased these pants in my local JCP,  I could not find them available on-line.  They are very similar in style to Old Navy's Pixie Pants, except without the zipper and pockets.



Have a Great Day!  Amy

    1. Yes, they are by Liz Claiborne. They just put them out in the store, I don't know why they are not on the website. And yes, I plan on wearing in the fall, that was one reason I bought them. They are quite thick, so they should work nice for cold weather too.

    1. Thanks Ellie! That's the main reason I like them; because I feel like I'm dressed up and stylish when I wear them, yet still comfortable. I find most dress pants so uncomfortable, but these are not.

    1. Thanks Shelbee. I love ON Pixie Pants too. I had the cutest red pair once but accidentally threw them in the dryer and they shrunk in the length, so I gave them to my daughter who is shorter than me.

  8. Great pants! I love that there are no zippers and pockets to add volume we don't need! And I so agree with you that you have to be comfortable in your clothes! There is nothing worse than an uncomfortable outfit you don't feel good in all day...

  9. Great minds! Just bought navy ankle pants at Loft Outlet. I love JCP but forget to look there. I have gotten too comfy just knowing that I wear a certain size at Loft and it always fits. These Liz Clairborne's fit you like a glove.

    1. Thanks Leslie! We don't have a Loft in my neck of the woods, in fact, we don't have a lot of the great stores most of the style bloggers shop at where I live. That's one reason I shop at JCP so much!
