I have to admit, I’m more of a dress girl and when I do wear pants, it is usually a pair of leggings or skinny jeans. I tend to like a more fitted look on the bottom to show off my great gams (hey, we all have to play up our assets!). But lately, I’ve been seduced by the very comfy looking “slouchy” pants that have been popping up all over the place (you may have also heard them referred to as soft pants or joggers). As a busy mom of a very active toddler, I’m always looking for new ways to look both polished and casual, so I thought I’d give them a shot.
Let me be clear – these are not your grandmother’s pants.
Yes, they are elasticized at the waist and they are comfy but that’s where the similarities end. The modern slouchy pant is usually tapered or even elasticized at the bottom and can come in an array of great prints. They also usually have wide pleats at the top to drape and give shape to the softer fabric.
I was afraid of looking like I’d gone out in my pajamas so I topped my look with this vest (vests are also big this season) to add some structure and I kept the top underneath fitted to the body. I chose a patterned pair for a little added flair – and patterned pants (or fancy pants as I like to call them) are another big trend this spring. I added a tribal inspired necklace to go with the tribal-feel of the pants (tribal – another spring trend!) and a pop of colour with my satchel. And voila, a perfect spring outfit.
So here’s my personal take on how to wear the “slouchy” pant.
