It’s time to relax and breathe…when it comes to pants. They are a little slouchy this season, but still feminine. From palazzo, to cropped, to sporty the fit is looser. If you are a little more daring, forgo solids in favor of prints in your relaxed fit pants. Make sure to check your angle from all sides though, this look can make you appear have extra junk in the trunk if you are not careful. If that’s the case look for rear pockets and a pair that’s high-wasted instead of drawstring. And don’t worry, you don’t have to get rid of your skinny jeans either.
