4 things to consider when buying plus-size black work pants

There are so many reasons why plus-size black work pants are a wardrobe staple. Firstly, they pair well with any kind of top, no matter the colour or pattern. They’re also universally flattering – nothing beats the totally timeless sophistication of black clothing!

From the illustrious “little black dress” to its reputation for being the most slimming colour for any type of garment, black has been a fashion industry staple for as long as anyone can remember. In fact, you only have to look as far as people calling any other colour “the new black” to understand its status as the benchmark for all things fashionable.

Before you buy your next pair of plus-size black pants, here are a few quick factors you should consider in order to make the best possible purchase!

Make sure they have enough stretch

Spending all day sitting at a desk in non-stretch pants can be an uncomfortable – if not occasionally painful – experience! That’s why each pair of Margaret M pants is designed to deliver totally unparalleled comfort for the wearer, starting with our signature memory stretch fabric. This material has spandex woven into its DNA, alongside rayon and nylon, so you can look and feel your best from morning ‘til night.

Look for additional slimming features

An integrated tummy control panel can provide an enhanced slimming and shaping effect for plus-sized fashionistas. However, this design feature can be a little difficult to find on the market. Don’t worry, though – it’s Margaret M to the rescue! Each pair of our plus size pants has a tummy sculpting panel sewn directly into the waistband, making it completely invisible and perfect for an all-natural look.

Consider buying locally-made and sustainable fashion

If you’re looking to support local brands and manufacturing, you can trust that Margaret M weaves those same values into all that we do. As a company that’s wholly committed to building a more sustainable and locally-focused fashion industry, our plus size black work pants are proudly made in Canada! We are always working to challenge the norms of fast fashion and make strategic decisions that are kind to our planet and our people, all while helping the Canadian economy thrive.

Think about how they’ll fit into your wardrobe

If you’ve made it this far, this is going to be the easy part! For plus-size and standard-size shoppers alike, a pair of black dress pants is arguably the most versatile item you can have in your office wardrobe.

If you’re a fan of minimalist style, you can pair black pants with soft neutral tops and blouses – think whites, greys, and calm pastels – for a sleek monochromatic look. On the other hand, the simple sophistication of a black pant can effortlessly balance out a bright pop of colour on top, whether you’re into patterned blazers or brighter-hued blouses.

Why choose Margaret M?

Aside from our ultra-stretchy comfort fabric and integrated tummy control panel, we also want you to be able to test out our styles at your own pace, and in the comfort of your own home. That’s why we offer everyday free shipping on orders of $50 or more, and you can always return your items free of charge if you’re not completely in love with what you’ve bought.
