Needless to say, I'm thrilled with the turn that things have taken in the pants department over the last 5 or so years. There are so many great cuts available! And so many where length isn't nearly as much of an issue! Skinny jeans that you can tuck into boots or roll up once and wear with sandals. Ankle cuts that look perfect with a pair of flats. High-waisted ones with a wide leg (length is important on these, but for some reason these kind of pants are usually made pretty long). And my new favorite cut that has recently made an appearance in the fashion world--joggers.
I recently bought a few different pairs of joggers and I think they're super flattering. The top hits a little bit higher than jeans, around the belly button, which accentuates your waist. They're a little loose and flowy which makes them not only comfortable but super feminine and sort of funky, Parisian maybe, perfect with a tucked top. And they taper beautifully at the bottom, hitting whatever part of your leg they will hit (you can see in these photos that depending on the cut, they sometimes hit higher and sometimes lower, and it all looks great!). Plus, these pants allow your footwear to really shine.
Thoughts? Do or don't on jogger pants? I'm sure they aren't for everyone but I think they're just adorable, and would work whether you're tall or short or somewhere in between. I love how this cut accentuates feminine curves but leaves a little to the imagination, you know? To me, that's the ultimate sophistication--it exudes confidence and class and style!
