Style Crush: The Slouchy Trouser



Add caption



Can we stop and talk about these paints for a minute? I need this pair like I've never needed  a pair of pants before.

The slouchy pant trend wasn't one  I thought twice about until I saw a girl wearing them in person.
And now, thanks to that obnoxiously adorable girl, I have a new favorite trend.

The right slouchy trouser can look chic cropped, rolled, long, wide and even....(wait for it)... TAPERED.  They can be cute at the office, or cozy for a Sunday stroll.

I will say that not all slouchy trousers are created equally.  I've put together a couple of guidelines on how to buy a non-fugly pair of silky trousers:
- Stick to neutral matte fabrics, unless your legs are a mile long and perfectly toned.  If you're one of the lucky ones (side note: I hate you), then you can rock brightly colored or patterned pairs.  Everyone should say no to shiny satin material, though.  It doesn't belong on butts, ever.
- Please, please, PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS HOLY make sure that the crotch isn't too  low.   This seems to be a prominent problem within the slouchy pant universe.  I've seen a lot of offenders on Pinterest, especially.  Looking like you've messed your pants is never cool, guys.*

So with that said, what do you think?  Are you going to hope on this baggy bandwagon?  I'm still on the hunt for the perfect pair!  If you've found an awesome pair, do share!

 I feel like I should mention that as I was drafting this post, Levi glanced over my shoulder and said "so are you doing a blog post about ugly pants?".

Men.  Le sigh.

  1. I love them but I havent found the right pair for me yet... I have some that slouch WAYYYY too much and make me look ridic. The search continues :(

  2. laughed out loud reading this - Levi is great.

  3. so, these pants are the bomb dot com. & i always see obnoxious cute girls wearing clothes that i wish i had. poo on them.

    & levi, well he is a character. and all men are like that, my N is sooo guilty.

    but we really need these pants. lets find them.

    bye ;]

  4. I love this look on other people but I just don't think I could pull it off! Would love to hear if you find a good pair though!

  5. That style would look fab on you! I think the pants in the last picture are Tibi from a few years ago btw. :) I got a pair from Zara last year...just haven't been brave enough to wear them more than a few times!

  6. I love the look, and the practicality. Perfect for my holiday suitcase, they don't take any space and weigh no more than a cotton ball. Love them!
