Casual chic in these great pants, designed for a crisp or drapey light or medium weight linen, taffeta, cotton sateen, tropical weight wool, double knits, cotton shirting, or silk dupioni, satin, charmeuse or crepe.
Relaxed-fit full length or cropped pants sit around 1 1/2” below the natural waist, and feature a faced waist with belt loops, button fastening and a fly front zipper. Pants have side and inner leg inserts, pieced front & back legs, side bellows pocket and a drawstring finish at the hem. The fronts have seam pockets; the back has a yoke and seam pockets with buttoned flaps. Topstitching is optional but unbelievably fabulous!
Think of these as a dressy track-pant, in which case team them with your favorite T-shirts, a funky cardigan and athletic-inspired flats, or as a relaxed everyday piece, to be dressed up with an elegant top, jacket, and a killer pair of heels. Sporty chic at its’ best!
