In the fall, I was sporting tapered trousers from James Perse to replace my skinny jeans and boring leggings for daytime outfits. I was so fed up being sucked in by spandex all day long. The cotton and slightly fitted pants were perfect for running around and not looking like a slob in sweats or soccer mom in spandex.
Now, that fashion is turning to spring (at least in California where it’s warm), my trouser is getting even more relaxed with the resurrection of gypsy pants also known as drawstring pants. Please note, the crotch is where it’s supposed to be so this style is NOT the one made famous by our boy MC.
Basically, you’re looking for pants with an elastic waist, possibly a drawstring, flowing pant leg, and an elastic band around the knee or ankle. A more tapered leg is dressier if you’re looking for nighttime Feel free to dress them up with heels and a funky top!
Today I ran into Sarah Jane, a lovely “Peace Angel” from Australia, wearing an awesome paisley pair. Combined with a solid tank and denim, she’s casual chic at its finest.
Me, on my way to yoga, no so much.
Still a little sloppy head to toe:
- Tavat sunglasses
- SoulCycle T
- Alternative Apparel pants ($34 in plenty of colors)
- Crocs sandals
- Furla bag
Off to sweat!
