Whether you are planning a spring vacation, looking for a new casual-yet-chic wardrobe for Sunday brunch, or you just want to switch up your style a little, you can be sure that today’s Top Buys story has something for you. Why, you ask? Well, ladies, today we have rounded up a slew of “pajama” pants that are guaranteed to give your closet a luxe twist. You can pair them with a chic button-down shirt, a slouchy tank top, or a matching pajama-style top—the choice is yours—but just make sure you grab a pair now as these are definitely the must-have style of the season. Read on!
First, let’s get one thing straight. While these pajama-style pants can be casual, they can just as easily be used to create a luxe ensemble, which is why we love them—they can be worn on so many of the occasions that the modern girl has jotted down in her calendar. For instance, right now fashion week is taking place in New York, as you know, and will be followed shortly by London, Milan, and Paris. A pair of Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti’s Print Pants ($845) would look amazing at any one of these events, as would By Malene Birger’s Hazima Printed Silk-Crepe Wide-Leg Pants ($355). Both pairs have an overtly luxe vibe, plus they would be sure to catch the eye of every street style photographer on hand, especially when paired with a chic white button-down blouse.
If you are planning a post-winter/pre-summer vacation, we recommend you check out casual options like Rag & Bone’s Racine Printed Silk Wide-Leg Pants ($475) and Joie’s Charleen Printed Pants ($258). Both pairs are great for a fun getaway because you can wear them all day. For instance, in the morning you can pair them with a simple tee and wide-brimmed hat as you relax by the pool or go shopping. Then, as the day turns into night, you can add a silky tank top and a statement necklace and head to the hotel bar for some cocktails!
If a music festival is on the agenda this summer, we suggest you look for pieces that really pop. For instance, we are smitten with 10 Crosby’s Wide-Leg Printed Trousers ($335). They feature a color combination—a touch of purple, a stripe of bold red—that can be played up or down, depending on your mood, but we suggest you draw out the colors by wearing a top that features similar colors. Of course, you might want your pants to be the focus of your outfit. In that case, we suggest you check out Minkpink’s Scorpio Rising Wide-Leg Pants ($152). These have a fun, bohemian vibe that is right at home at a music festival, plus they need little in the way of accessories. Simply pair them with a black tee, add a few pieces of fun jewelry, and dance the day away.
Finally, perhaps you are just looking for something to wear on those lazy weekend days. Yes? Well, you are in luck! Both Free People’s Printed Wide-Leg Pull-On Pants ($98) and Elizabeth & James’ Evelyn Trousers ($345) have a relaxed and unfussy vibe, but they still feel totally fashion-forward. When paired with a silky tank top and flat sandals, they quickly create a casual-yet-chic ensemble that is perfect for brunch, a visit to the flea market, and then a late lunch/early dinner. Happy shopping!
