Wardrobe Staple: Matchstick Pants

(1) Atlantic-Pacific(2)9to5 Chic(3) Olivia Palmero(4) Late Afternoon (her pants here)

The matchstick pant, aka "slim cropped trousers," are a polished wardrobe staple perfect for working women or for those who are craving a tailored look. Think of them as the cigarette pant's perky younger sister. Tapered and cropped at the ankle, they are effortlessly chic and extremely flattering.

When it comes to putting together a novel look around a classic shape bloggers do it better - exemplified by the ladies above. From Blair at Atlantic-Pacific's ladylike look featuring cropped metallic pants to Olivia Palmero's fun floral print trousers, there are countless ways to style this true wardrobe staple. Lucky for us, these little gems are available in color and prints galore.

  23. I'm actually supremely dying over the gorgeous structure and anything goes prints of these pants! I'm especially dying over those brocade and metallic ones--they seem so appropriate for fall and the holidays. Classy, ladylike, and awesome, what more could you ask for a pair of trousers? :)

  26. Coincidence -- I'm wearing a pair of matchstick pants right now! They're a great style, and they are flattering on a lot of different body types.
