5 Most Flattering Black Pants for Busy Mums

I live in black pants.  They are part of my work uniform during the week, and I often pair them with a wrap blouse and cardigan on the weekend.  With kids, you need clothing that is both practical, functional and flattering.  You can’t wear a dress with little kids if you are bending over and picking things up off the floor all day.  Pants are great as you can bend, stretch and move without flashing your foo foo. Checkout our list of the 5 Most Flattering Black Pants for Busy Mums below.

Katies Basic Ponte Pants

These are the bomb. I own at least 10 pairs of these flattering black pants! Best of all they are currently only $20!  Ponte is brilliant as it doesn’t need to be ironed and really clings to your curves without being too tight and uncomfortable. They have a comfortable fitted waistband and are a slim fit.
