I have a confession: I LOVE COMFORT. I admit it. I want to be as comfy as the next person but I am not about to sacrifice on style. Enter, the lounge pant – fashion’s most basic solution to comfort.
Now there are 3 things to keep in mind in order to ensure that you don’t look like you’re wearing your pajama pants (when, in fact, you are):
1) Shoes. Throw on a pair of flip flops and your pants are questionable. Instead, elevate your lounge pant with a structured shoe. A wide-leg pant begs for a wedge sandal, making your legs look miles long. A more narrow pant can be paired with nearly anything – an oxford, pointy-toe flat, gladiator sandal or even a heel for evening or work wear. Just stay away from tennis shoes…that can be confusing.
2) Define your waist. Since the pants are loose, you need to show off your figure by defining your mid-section. Believe it or not, making slouch fashionable can be tricky! Therefore, add a belt, wear a more fitted or cropped top or tuck (the proverbial mullet-tuck continues to be my favorite).
3) Accessorize. Your outfit is always more complete when you add thoughtful personal touches. Accessories are never more important than when you’re getting away with such a comfortable pant! Add a necklace (or two), a scarf or a colorful bag. Your pajamas will never have looked so chic!
