I never would of thought I would be posting about knit pants and fashion in the same sentence, but look at me go! Apparently knit pants are making a comeback in a big way.
Take a look at any Fall 2009 collection on your favorite website and you’ll probably find Ponte Knit pants or Knit jeans of some sort. I was shoppinng on Nordstrom.com when I came across some stylish BCBG MAXAZRIA ‘Maria’ Slim Ponte Knit Pants but they are $138.00. So it made me want to look around and see if that was really the going price for ponte knit pants these days. You know me and my bargain hunting!
I found a pair of high waisted ponte knit pants on Newport News for only $29! SCORE! After a few more hours of online shopping, I found that Victoria’s Secret has a pair of Knit ponte jodhpur pant in their new Fall 2009 collection, but they are $88. I like them though because they look a lot like the classic riding pant, with front seams. Made out of a comfy stretch fabric, these would look great tucked into boots.
Browsing on Bloomingdales.com, I found a pair of fab looking Marc By Marc Jacobs Ponte Knit Skinny Pants. LOVE them. Too bad they are $228… The good news is, I found a similar pair of Skinny Ponte Knit Pants on JCPenny.com for only $24.99 for petite size and $27.99 for regular sizes. I nabbed those immediately. Use coupon code GO2CLASS to get $10 off your order of $25 or more. Good August 10th thru August 22nd, 2009. (If you get the petite size, you will be 1 cent under for the coupon code, so just add something else to your order like a $4 pair of earrings or something. )
Ponte knit pants are a great alternative to jeans. You can dress them up, dress them down, and either way you’ll still be comfortable. Great for busy moms that usually wear yoga pants. Ponte knits pants feel like yoga pants, but look like trousers. Perfect for running errands or traveling.
What do you think of the ponte knit trend? Will you be buying a pair for Fall?
