Casual pants have very little to do with golf courses in Florida. Understandably you may have been confused when chino pants made an appearance closer to Rue Saint Honore than bunkers or driving ranges. Khaki pants that are comfortable, breathable and could handle a sporadic run. Fashion and its refreshing directional change has included such favorites as comfortable sneakers instead of heels, messy buns instead of blowdrys and sweatshirts instead of silk blouses.
Wear Casual pants with elegance
Designer sweatpants can be worn for dates, when combined with tailored blazers, heels and a top. Cargo pants can be worn to mid-week social events, with sequined jackets and the Aquazzura sandals you packed in your purse. Haider Ackermann will not lead you astray. Flexibility is a symbol of sophistication, the new formal, informal. Finding pieces that flatter, that work like a jigsaw puzzle around not only your body, but amongst each other. Flexible styling is a balance between confidence and good shoes. Cashmere track pants could be worn straight from the plane to a meeting, with a sharp tailored jacket, some jewelry and any shoe by Gianvito Rossi. That doesn’t mean that curling up on the sofa, in those very same cashmere women’s track pants will be any less delightful.
Find one color that you love and buy it across a few key pieces. Have cotton pants that fit you well and adapt to multiple climates. A well-tailored pair of ladies casual pants can be worn with anything from bodysuits, to basic T-shirts to more dressed up silk blouses. We recommend high-waisted varieties as they are often simpler to dress-up.
Leaders of their field
Gwyneth Paltrow could never be accused of looking unpolished, or inappropriately dressed. We can't forget that as well as being a movie star, she runs a lifestyle empire, is a busy mother, travels, appreciates a daily workout and no doubt has a hectic social calendar. Even if you count Valentino as a great friend, it doesn’t mean you have someone dressing you for the school run. We love how Gwyneth does casual by mixing blazers with soft basics and natural makeup. Two brands who are responsible for our most multifunctional outfits are J Brand and Polo Ralph Lauren. J Brand, who accounts for actually quite a bit of what we wear, are masters of a flattering fit with minimalist style. From cargo pants to leather leggings, flexibility really is their field. Ralph Lauren has always been the very symbol of laidback chic and nothing has changed. A soft cotton pair of chinos by Polo Ralph Lauren with tennis shoes and a denim jacket will make you feel like it's the weekend in the middle of a working week. Let’s face it, anything that helps create a mood of serenity, be it a bath, a candle or a pair of casual pants, is time and money well spent.
