What to Wear: New Relaxed Pant Silhouettes

[Reposted from Wardrobe911,  5 April, 2010]

It seems most women I know are perpetually in search of the perfect, most flattering pants to be the staples in their wardrobe for a season or two. After several seasons of skinny pants and leggings dominating the runways, spring brings a fresh and welcomed silhouette of the relaxed and loose, cropped trouser. I have researched the best of the best relaxed, spring pant styles for my clients and am happy to share them with you! 

Theory has a cropped, silk pleated trouser in black that will pair easily with tank tops, tees and blouses in spring colors. Top it off with a jacket or a cardigan for a professional and polished look. These pants look cute with flats or heels so you can dress them up or down. They are just loose enough in the hip and thigh to provide a relaxed look but the overall silhouette is still long, lean and flattering.

J Crew also offers a version of the cropped, relaxed trouser in a heathered grey fine wool you can wear all year round. This pant shows just enough of the ankle to showcase fabulous shoes.

Banana Republic Monogram collection also has a version of the new relaxed, cropped trouser pant in a olive green, crinkle fabric that has a bit of shimmer to it.

These relaxed trousers add just enough roominess but still keep a polished silhouette so we can all loosen up a bit for spring.
