Alternately Titled: Pajama Pants in Public (and How to Wear Them)
Some days, a girl just needs a break from her blue jeans — and skinny anything is the absolute last thing I feel like pulling on in 100% humidity.
*Get the look:
Is it that time of year when we stand in front of our closets claiming that we have no clothes or nothing to wear?
Pajama-inspired pants are all I want to wear right now… For obvious reasons, I imagine. (And when cut-offs aren’t in the equation.)
Or these pajama-like pants, to be specific… Ever since I bought them just this spring/before Coachella (styled here).
I went with a crop top for ventilation for today, but even when paired with a fitted button-down or tailored top, I’ve found that wide-leg pants like these are an easy way to look polished…
Even at the office, IMO.
I will admit, though — I was pittin’ the shit out of this blush pink shirt barely 10 minutes into my commute… Oh that STRUGGLE. Who else knows it all to well?
A worthy trade-off for pajama(-like) pants in public… Thanks to public bathroom hand dryers.
… Superrrrrrr chic.
If you’ve ever thought about trying this head-turning trend but you’re stuck on exactly how to wear wide-leg pants, here’s a few quick, easy style tips:
- Make sure your pants don’t puddle around your ankles.
- Stay away from volume on both ends.
- Tuck in your top (if applicable).
- Find a pair with lots of movement to break up the boxiness. (Those pleats!)
- Keep it simple. Don’t over-accessorize.
See you back here tomorrow, babes. Oh — and in the interim, I’ll be sharing some new music mixes with you over on my Instagram Stories today.
