That aren’t leggings, because these are a given. This post would’ve been better ~fit~ to post right around Thanksgiving, but in case anyone else is tired of wearing jeans to look put together, here are my favorite type of pants for feeling unrestricted and free throughout the day so I’m not exhausting my leggings and yoga pants 24/7.
- Lace beach Cover Up Swim Pants
I love these so much, I bought them in two colors: white, and the black pants I just posted on Instagram. I think my love of these stems from the fact that when I have a wet bathing suit on, these pants hang loosely and don’t stick to any extra fabric. They don’t hide the cute bikini you picked out, but they also give you the cover you need so you don’t get thrown out of the little restaurant at the beach for not wearing enough clothing.
- Flared Velvet Pants
Velvet pants are the best because you can dress them up with a body suit or you can dress them down with a matching velvet zip up or a comfy sweatshirt. They look nice but also give you the feeling that you have your pet with you wherever you go.
- Ruffled Tie Waist Capri’s
I’d seen ruffled tie shorts before but finding these in capri’s was one of my most exciting discoveries this past month (sad). $8 wasn’t a typo, but I bought these and the material does not feel like $8 quality. To be honest, Romwe is one of those sites you probably recognize from the side of your Facebook with the ads, and it does take about a month to ship, but these pants for me were worth it. I’ll do a review on Romwe and international sites soon, but for now, I would just trust the products you’ve heard are reliable.
- Printed Flare Pants
Flared patterned pants are definitely nothing new but they just deserve to be added to their list for their comfort and their ability to work as pajamas or form enhancing attire for a night out. It’s also a little helpful that there are thousands of pattern and color variations suitable for any occasion. My personal favorite are these flare pants from Boohoo.
- Silky Joggers
Since Lulu’s is one of my favorite places to shop, those of you who know me are probably rolling your eyes. But I’m serious, these are such a great yoga pant alternative! Worn with heels or an oversized shirt, these could not be comfier and if you spin Lulu’s sale wheel (found on their website) you can get up to 40% off, which for me was enough to check them out.
So, that concludes my list of elastic pants & I hope this keeps you from unbuttoning your pants under the table next time you go out to dinner.
