I know I’ve been a proponent of wearing sweatpants as streetwear, but I must admit I’m tired of shlepping around in them, and have been craving hard pants—but hard pants that look like they’re on the softer side, like these Helmut Lang trousers, which have an appealingly military-ish vibe.
These tapered trousers from Vince have the just-right amount of stretch, and are the just-right amount of cropped too.
These high-waisted wide-leg pants come in a few good colors, but I’m keen on this slightly dark yellow.
These have an elastic waistband and look like they’d be as comfortable and easy to move around in as sweats, but they appear to be pretty polished too. Great pants for travel when we all start traveling again.
I just really like the green hue and roomy fit of this pair.
These slouchy Isabel Marant joggers would be just perfect for the warmer weather that will head our way eventually.
A chino with a not-too-high, not-too-low waistline.
The pleated knees on this navy pair are a cool touch.
This super-stretchy pair of pants is like if a trouser and a legging had a baby.
This skinny stretch wool trouser is not the least bit cropped, which I know will make some of you happy.
These look comfortable enough to sleep in, but are completely street-worthy as well.
A very spiff pair of cigarette pants in a nice rich olive.
These faux leather trousers have a nice high waist—for those of you who prefer such a thing.
A pair of wool cropped pants that are delightfully menswearish.
And I kind of love this heathered grey plaid pair for the same reason.
And finally: I love how the plaid print here is just barely visible.
