So, how many pairs of pants are in your closet?

And how many is too many? I was just watching "What Not To Wear" tonight and Stacey & Clinton were talking about a few stylish pieces in your wardrobe that can be mixed and matched "endlessly". I feel like I can "mix it up" better if I have at least 7 pairs of pants to wear to work, and about 5 pairs to use for casual errand use. How about the rest of you?

  • I have a ton of pants in my closet, only 1 fit me though, thanks to my last DD's birth. Ugh. 1 pair of jeans and sweat pants for me... and a wish to fit in the rest. :)

  • That fit me at my current weight (which hasn't changed in about 5 years) I have about 20 pairs of pants (including jeans). At 4'11 3/4" I have to have everything tailored. If I find pair of pants or jeans that I LOVE I buy 2 pairs and have one hemmed for wearing with flats and one with heels. I then take a Sharpie marker and write "HH" on the tag of the one's to wear with heals. that way when I get ready for work in the morning I can easily identify which pairs or for whatever type of shoe I feel like wearing that day.

  • I have 4 pairs of jeans. 2 pairs are riders jeans no waist gap comfort and 2 pairs from old navy the sweetheart pants. all of them are boot cut jeans because they seems to fit me best even though i always have to get them since they are long on the bottom.

  • I have so many jeans. I wear them every day. I probably wear four pairs the most regularly. However I have a new rule, a new pair comes in and an old pair goes out.

  • I have 5 pair total, 2 hang in the closet, 3 in the drawer. At this very moment I'm 9 months pregnant and only 2 of them fit me. But I'm more of a skirt lady - I have 5 of those too...
