Recently, I have come to the conclusion that I look better in pants than dresses, which is a little bit of a drag because I typically wear the latter all summer long. So right now I’m looking at lightweight chinos, like this pair from Nili Lotan. It’s her Tel Aviv pant and it is, to my mind, the platonic ideal of the chino.
I appreciate the wide leg on this pair.
I’m borderline obsessed with these denim chinos with an unfinished hem.
Here’s an under $50 pair with a ton of stretch.
And these, which come in a few other good colors, are under $100.
The double belt loops on these are a fun touch.
Here’s a pair that’s more on the fitted side, from Vince.
The sea foam green here is really good, as is the slouchy cut.
And finally: I usually hate pleated anything, but the pleats on these pants from Sezane are kind of subtle and cute.
