The Comfortable Pants Trend I’d Gladly Give Up My Leggings For

For the past ten months, I’ve been living in leggings. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not mad about it—they are supremely comfortable after all, but at this stage of the game—and with the promise of a new season ahead—I can say with 100% certainty that I am more than ready to change up my pants game.

Luckily, one of the biggest trends we saw come out of the S/S 21 collections were loose, relaxed trousers—a silhouette that feels utterly fresh, cool, and exudes an effortless elegance. But most importantly, these free and easy pants are comfortable. Flowy, relaxed tailored trousers were paired with everything from graphic tees to trending bandeau’s, loose blouses, and oversize blazers—many cinched at the waist with a belt, with plenty of fabric grazing the floor—creating an elongated silhouette. 

If you too are ready to break out of your leggings (at least for a couple of days a week) then take a peek below as we share our favorite relaxed trousers to shop right now, along with plenty of outfit inspiration on how to style them.
