More formal than a pair of standard denim jeans, but viewed as casual compared to dress slacks, trouser jeans for women feature the best of both pant concepts. Appearing as a pair of regular slacks from a distance, when viewed up close, these semi-formal looking pants are made using a denim fabric. Differentiating the denim used in these types of jeans from the fabric used in everyday casual jeans, most denims used in these types of slacks are dark. There are no acid washes, bleached denim colors and other very-light or faded denims found here, as these colors would not be appropriate for a semi-formal office or business casual event.
Appealing to women who enjoy a darker colored pant, these slacks are most often manufactured in a dark indigo color. Appearing as a navy blue or almost black pant, a pair of semi-formal jean pants is very versatile and slimming. Just as regular office pants can have different styled designs, so too can women’s trouser jeans. A slimming, flat-front pant with slashed side pockets is the most dominant style on the market; however, it is not uncommon to find a more relaxed, pleated front style of pant with a elasticized waist; particularly in the plus sizes.
A great benefit of these pants is that they are available in all size ranges. Misses, petites and plus sizes all host manufacturers that design these popular casual pants. Most often worn in the winter and fall months, when paired with a short-sleeved, jewel tone blouse, they are also appropriate for the warmer weather months.
