Men have it easy when it comes to dressing nicely for work. A suit and a tie, some shined shoes—simple as that!

What about women? Dress codes can seem so confining to our individuality and fashionable tendencies. No need to imagine a terribly uncomfortable suit dress or poorly fitting slacks. There are other options; it just takes some effort to search in the right places.

Skirts are easy—you can find plenty of work-appropriate skirts in just about any store. Stick to longer lengths to avoid accidentally breaking the dress code.

Dresses are the same thing. You can find them all over the place. They're classic, comfy and great for an early morning when you can't convince yourself to get out of bed on the first ringing of the alarm clock.

Now, it's the long trousers that are hard to come by. On sites like Ginger&Smart, the selections of nice long trousers are abundant, but which should you choose? This is a big purchase, one you definitely want to consider before taking the plunge. You'll want to buy a nice pair that can last you ages.

What should you consider when you choose your next pair of long trousers? Read on to find out what the most important variables are.

Price

One nice pair will go a long way, especially when you purchase something as simple as a pair of plain black dress trousers.

You're going to have to spend a bit of money to get the high quality you crave, but it will be worth it in the end when you're still wearing the same long trousers years down the line without any wear and tear in the fabric.

It will last long. You're going to get your money's worth out of a nice pair of long trousers. In fact, the general rule of thumb is that the more expensive it is, the better the quality. This is one of those rare occasions when splurging is necessary.

Plus, with great quality clothes, you'll be that much closer to a better fitting outfit that will keep you comfortable all day long.

Matching

You're going to want to go with something that leaves you many top options. For example, plain black is always a good choice of color because it matches with pretty much anything. This includes boldly colored heels you might choose to spice up an outfit.

You don't want to choose your long trousers in any colors that stand out too boldly because that limits what you can wear with it. Stick to blacks, whites and common shades of blue.

Fit

The very last thing to consider when trying to find the perfect pair of long trousers is the fit you want.

Do you want slim fitting long trousers? A tailored shape? Boot cut? Comfy yet professional shorts? The possibilities are endless. Just be sure to choose something you truly love and are comfortable in so you can wear your purchase often and get your money's worth.
