The woman's pant is the article of clothing every work outfit hinges on. Each morning I ask myself first which pant I want to wear, and then plan the rest of my professional ensemble accordingly. Some days I feel like a high-waisted skinny jean that is easy for me to move around in. Some days, a slim trouser for a look that's easy yet polished. Or some days, a long short, or short pant, if it's 78 degrees and I'm back from vacation with  a new tan. Meet 2015's summer city suit: still in your breathable tropical wool, with your classic blazer, but hitting just above the knee as you would have the skirt to your suit hemmed to. So, if you choose to chop your pant length, how will you wear it? Will you go the trusty-pointy-toe-pump-lady-like route or the slip-on-tennies-athletic way? Just like the 1,200 previous pants I've bought and introduced to my work life, the possibilities are endless.
