STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: She Wears The Pants

June 3rd, 2015 at 2:10am

We’ve all been there – it’s the week before exams, you’ve been studying all night and when your alarm goes off, thoughts of facing the cold weather have you hitting the snooze button. While part of you still wants to look your best for class, deep down you just want to stay in your PJ’s and watch Netflix. Luckily, you can have both; slouchy pants are so on point, and it looks like they’re here to stay.

The even comfier cousin of the beloved boyfriend jean, loose-fitting trousers will score you major style cred with minimal effort. Skinny jeans and tailored pants have been a wardrobe staple for years, but slouchy pants are equally worthy of that Holy Grail status. Not only do they offer comfort levels to rival your favourite onesie, they’re also super versatile. They can be worn with closed shoes in the colder months, or teamed with a cute pair of sandals when it’s warm. Choose from denim-look, a fun pattern or simple neutrals – or fill your wardrobe with one of each! Depending on the style you choose, slouchy pants are also a great day-to-night piece, so just slip on a great pair of heels and you’ve got your next date outfit sorted. When the time comes for you to wake up early for class, throw on your favourite pair of slouchy pants, and you’ll be feeling like a #GirlBoss in no time.

This Fashionista has kept the trend simple with monochrome basics, allowing her striped pants to remain the focus of her look. A basic cropped knit teamed with the high-waisted pants looks effortless and shows off her figure. The black and white Nike trainers give a hint of sports luxe, and the classic oversize tote adds structure to the outfit without overpowering it.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK?: “These are my go-to pants on a day where I have nothing to wear at all. They’re quite comfy… I’m not the type to really dress up for uni, so I just chuck on my pants!”
