floral-pants-via-la-la-lovely

i thought skirts were my answer to avoiding shorts this summer, but i’ve stumbled upon another option that has, surprisingly, turned into my favorite choice . . . flowy pants.

i never thought to think in terms of flowy, floral type, pants because i wore them once upon a 1994 (ones super similar to these, in fact).   while, yesteryears was called palazzo pants todays modern version is simply wide legged. or, my favorite variety, is termed the jogger (modern jogger pants).  i assumed for sure this type of pant (just by way of the name) would be really unflattering on me, but i’m happy to admit i was wrong.  many are ankle length and tapered, which is actually flattering.  some button and zip, like dress pants (great for giving a waist), and, many are not high waisted, which is key if you don’t want your butt to look the length of a skyscraper (in my mind i wear trendy high waisted jeans, but in the mirror it would be mom jeans all the way – remember this?).  the key is to go a for a silky flowy material that doesn’t cling to you.

i just got the pants, i’m wearing, last week, from anthropologie, but for some reason, can’t find them online?  i also bought a somewhat similar, very affordable, black pair from nordstrom that i might where everyday.  love them so much i’m considering getting the other color too.

 

if you like this look here are a few more pairs of flowy pants i’m loving
