We Poured Coffee On Old Navy’s New Stain-Repellent White Jeans–What Happened Next
Old Navy just released stain-repellent white jeans--so we had to try them (duh!). Our brave assistant editor Sara pulled on the jeans, grabbed an iced coffee then poured it all over herself (I was tempted to throw it at her, Housewife-style, but resisted the urge). The result? They totally work! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ASJ0XKGarLE&feature=youtu.be If you're one of those people that tends to spill stuff on yourself (no judgement), grab a pair: Old Navy Mid-Rise Stay-White Rockstar Super Skinny Jeans ($44.94)

If You Buy These Alice + Olivia Pants, You Need To Work Them Like Kate Hudson Did
I don't love a lot of female celebrities--the Kardashians drive me nuts and find a lot of the Hollywood actresses to be irritating (sorry, Anne Hathaway), but I actually really, really like Kate Hudson. She is so pretty and such a cool, free spirit--I just want to be her. And she has the sickest bod right now--shout out to her Fabletics line, which she just stepped out to promote in NYC, wearing these very cool, effortless Alice + Olivia low waist harem pants ($220). Dontcha just want a pair? Alice + Olivia low waist harem pants ($220)

A pink or white blazer on top, a la Jessica's, is perfection. GET THEM HERE
7 Brands With Awesome Black Leggings That Don’t Turn See-Through After 1 Wash
I'm 100% team "leggings are not pants." I rarely wear them outside of my apartment, but when I am home they're pretty much the only thing I wear. And being that I'm a homebody and I'm home a lot, I have tons of black leggings. I used to buy them in massive quantities from Forever 21 and H&M, but then I had a revelation. I wasn't actually getting that great of a deal on these $5 leggings because I had to replace them after two washes. We all know what happens--you wash cheap leggings a few times and boom, they're see through. I hate that. Given how much I love leggings, I decided to do something I would usually never do--pay more than $20 for a pair. I "splurged" on the Salar Leggings from Fabletics for $40 and when I say they were a game-changer, I really can't convey how much I love these freakin' leggings. I've had the same pair of over a year and they are still as thick and stretchy and amazing as the first time I wore them. They are so good that I sometimes even sneak and wear them to the grocery story even though I despise wearing leggings beyond the confines of my house. Finding those Fabletics leggings, however, convinced me that I should stop buying cheap leggings only to replace them every month or two and to spend the money on leggings that last wash after wash. I rounded up the six brands I've found to be the most durable and comfortable in the slideshow, so if you love leggings as much as I do I encourage you to splurge just once, too. I have no doubt you'll see the light. Also, if you have leggings that you love that don't get all flimsy and see-through after a few washes, please share in the comments!

Get 30% Off At Old Navy Until 3pm Today: Go, Go, Go!
Old Navy is running a sale today--presumably for those of us stuck at home from Juno with nothing to do but shop--that features 30% off full priced items. The only catch is that it ends at 3pm, so you only have a very limited time to get the good deal. (Use code AMPM at checkout.) I personally plan to stock up on lightweight cardigans, sleeveless tops and $2 flip-flops for my upcoming beach vacation. SHOP THE OLD NAVY SALE NOW Editor's Picks: Patterned Matte-Crepe Shirt ($20.95, down from $29.94), Linen-Blend V-Neck Cardigan ($23, down from $32.94), The Boyfriend Skinny Jeans ($25,85, down from $36.94).
24 Pairs of Culottes That Will Make You Change Your Mind About Them
Whether you like it or not, bloggers and designers are paving the way for culottes to be the next big thing. In fact, they're already here, and from the looks of the spring runways, they are here to stay. I should probably also mention that many of the styles on Net-A-Porter are already low in stock—I find that pretty telling. So you might want to get acquainted with the latest silhouette to be revived in the fashion world. There's really no reason to be apprehensive about wearing culottes—if you already wear midi skirts or cropped wide leg trousers, you're basically already there. Plus they're super versatile—the same pair of culottes can be dressed up or down, and you can pair them with just about anything. Thakoon's pleated crepe culottes can be worn with a black knit and flats for daytime, and dressed up with a tucked in silky top for night. Michael Kors showed his denim culottes with a simple white button down, but the rule on these is basically the same as any denim bottom—anything goes. If you're concerned that culottes might make you appear wider, just do a form fitting top, that'll balance things out. And if you're issue is losing length, you'd be surprised how amazing culottes look with most heels. For the gals that think guys'll shy away from a chick in culottes, pair them with a crop top to see how quickly they come running. The bottom line is that culottes are not so bad—they're actually kind've amazing. You should give em a shot, you won't regret it. [Photo: Haute Inhabit]
Don’t Let The Price Deter You–Gwen Stefani’s Leather Joggers Are So Worth It
It was only a matter of time before the fancy sweatpants craze met the leather-everything craze. And who else would find the perfect pairing but Gwen Stefani. The punk rock mom of three wore Paige Denim Jadyn Pant ($799) with a white cable knit sweater, an oversize printed scarf and of course, some groovy, printed heels. And this was all for an acupuncture appointment. Comfort punk? We think so. Snag these leather pants and with this price tag, feel free to wear everywhere. Paige Denim Jadyn Pant ($799) P.S. Love Gwen's cozy turtleneck? It's Iris von Arnim's cashmere sweater and you can get the exact same one here! Don't miss out on Lena Dunham's chic earrings, Eva Longoria's biker boots, and Jennifer Lopez's cropped sweater. [Photo: Splash News]
Sweatpants Are The New Skinny Jeans—34 Pairs That Prove It.
Sweatpants have been trying to have a moment in fashion since the days of the Juicy Couture tracksuit. Sure those sweats were worn by every female living in America for five straight years, but they were never really considered in style. Only now are sweatpants getting the attention they deserve. Thanks mostly to Pheobe Philo, comfort is considered chic—just take a walk down the street to see how many girls traded their heels in for sneakers. Women want to be comfortable while still looking cool, and designers (Alexander Wang, Phillip Lim, Marni) caught on and responded—enter the heavy emphasis this season on sweatpants, harems, and joggers. Instead of throwing on a t-shirt or hoodie, pair your sweats with something a bit less casual, like a loose silk blouse or bright oversized sweater. Finish the look with a clean pair of sneakers or a chunky leather bootie and trust me, you will get stopped for looking so cool and comfortable. Just you wait and see. [Photo: Always Judging]
The Search For The Perfect Pair Of Black Faux Leather Leggings Ends Here
I happen to fall into the camp of people who firmly believe that leggings are not pants. Don't get me wrong--I love some comfy Spandex when lounging at home. But for me, that's where they stay--at home. That being said, I'm all about faux leather leggings and pants, which feel dressier and therefore more appropriate to wear in the streets. I'm currently on the hunt for an amazing pair (or two) of black ones, so I decided to round up some of my top contenders for those of you looking for a great pair, too. Click through the slideshow to find a bunch of great options and watch how much more you like these hot leather styles than your Lululemons.

Juicy Couture Pants Are Half The Price They Used To Be In 2002–So I Want A Pair
Juicy Couture pants are the best gift I have received in my almost 23 years of life. It was Hanukkah 2003 and my parents surprised me with an olive green velour pair. I pretty much haven't taken them off since. They don't have any fancy writing on the butt or top left thigh, but it was love at first sight. In high school, they were my pants of choice, in college they were part of my hangover cure and now they are my post-work/weekend uniform. Yes, I still have these pants from over 10 years ago. They have survived probably over 1,000 washes and remain just as comfortable. And I'm not the only one who still wears her Juicy sweats. My friends and I talk all the time about how we shadily want another pair (sorry guys, secret's out). So when news broke that old Juicy wasn't closing forever but moving into Kohl's stores, I had to find out if the pants would go down in price. In their heyday, Juicy sweats were close to $100. Now at Kohl's, they are only $40--just about half of what you (aka, your parents) spent in 2002. I am not ashamed to admit that this totally convinced me to buy another pair. I don't think Beyonce or Kim Kardashian will be wearing Juicy again anytime soon, but I definitely will from the comfort of my own bed. Who's winning at life now, huh?!?

Wide Leg Pants Are Basically Fancy Sweats That Are Office-Approved
With the summer temps starting, it's sometimes just too hot to even think about wearing a pair of thick jeans. All you want is to be as comfortable during the day as you were while in bed the night before. Enter the wide leg pant. Not quite a pajama bottom but also way comfier than any pair of boyfriend jeans, the wide leg pant — in satin, linen, or even silk chiffon — will be all you want to wear this season. And when it comes to this type of style, we love seeing the pant in a fun print. Sure, you can do a sheer black pair or a white pant with a side-stripe, but there's plenty of patterns — from polka dots and stripes to florals and geometric — that go perfectly with a loose T-shirt or button-down blouse. Check our out slideshow to see which wide leg pant you'll want to wear now. Don't forget to check out these other trends: bikini tops with sleeves, maxi dresses under $75, and affordable home decor.

Clothes And Accessories You Can Wear On 4/20 And Beyond
It's pretty EPIC that the three biggest spring holidays all fall on the same weekend this year: Easter, Passover and 4/20. Well, maybe not if you're Jewish, like me, because you might run into some issues on Sunday when you get a case of the munchies...stay strong! We could tell you to wear pastel jeans or try this 10 plagues-inspired nail art, but what do you do once the holiday ends? Kind of awks to walk around with blood drawn on your nails or looking like an Easter egg. So innstead, we rounded up a bunch of stoner-approved clothes and accessories that you can wear on 4/20 AND beyond. Because nothing says I'm the chillest girl around like a weed ankle bracelet or a t-shirt that says "My Girls Rock Balenciaga And Smoke Mad Marijuana." And if you want to make sure the scent of Mary Jane doesn't leave your presence, try these cannabis skincare products or some weed perfume. HAaPpYy HoOlLiIdDaAzZeE!

Why Is Diane Kruger Hiding From The Paps At LAX? Her Rag & Bone Sweats Are Sweet.
Who doesn't love Diane Kruger's style? Whether she's getting dressed up for a red carpet event or just meeting her adorable boyfriend, Joshua Jackson, for lunch, she always looks flawless. She even looks amazing in sweatpants. Seriously. Diane was spotted in Rag & Bone's Easy Sweatpants ($350) and The Jean Jacket with Hood ($385) boarding a flight to London. We wish we could looks this good in a pair of sweats, about to board a 10 hour flight from L.A. to London. Then again, she IS wearing Rag & Bone. So that probably has something to do with why she looks so cool.

They're forgiving and look AMAZE with a pair of pumps or booties and a tucked-in silk top.

Sure, they are a wee bit pricey BUT think about how often you wear your go-to black pants. Twice a week for 5+ years? So, yea the cost per wear on a basic pant like this is pretty low. Plus, the draping is super on-trend - which means you have an instant cool factor upon wearing. Your friends will be all "Hey, where'd you get those pants?" and you'll be all "IDK, at the pants store!?" and everyone will be sooooo jealous. GET 'EM NOW
You’re Bound To Get Tired Of Dresses & Skirts–That’s What Summer Pants Are For
Let's not fool ourselves: no matter how nice the weather is or how committed you are to your leg workouts, you're not wearing skirts and dresses every single day this summer. There will be days when it's raining or you forget to shave and when those days roll around you need a good pair of lightweight pants you can throw on and go. Now yes, light jeans are an option, but not if you're headed to work. So instead, we're helping you out with a bunch of cute, summer pants you can add to your rotation this season.

For an additional $55, you can have up to 3 initials hand sewn into your jeans. Although the jeans are customized in London, you can get them shipped to the United States.

Jennifer Aniston’s Pants Are $49 And From J.Crew–Happy Weekend!!
Jennifer Aniston has been laying low lately, but she used to be quite the fashion influencer. Remember those distressed boyfriend jeans that everyone bought after she wore them? Or that time she put Jennifer Meyer's jewelry on the map? Ah, good times. We've been going through a little Aniston-withdrawl as of late, but were psyched to see this outfit (above) on America's sweetheart, which is not only cool & laid-back (her signature!), but totally affordable (not exactly her signature). The green cropped chino pants she's worn 3 times in the last week - some kind of record? - are actually $49, on sale and from J.Crew. Hat trick!

We Don’t See A Baby Bump Under Beyonce’s Printed Pants–Do You?
With Beyonce's world tour going on, it can be hard to keep track of the megastar. Recently, she took a break from her tour to promote her new animated movie, Epic, in London. Beyonce must have been inspired by the movie (she voices the queen of the forest--would you expect anything less?), because she arrived at the press junket wearing a green blazer and chinos featuring a nature-inspired print. And as far as we can tell, there's no baby bump to be found under the green and blue pants. Either the rumors aren't true, or the pants are super flattering. Either way, Beyonce's Barbara Bui Printed Chino Pants ($290, down from $485) are kind of amazing--they are right on trend with this season's photoreal designs. And if Beyonce gives something her seal of approval, you know it's good. Shop Queen Bey's outfit below: Barbara Bui Shawl Collar Blazer ($1,114.23) Barbara Bui Printed Chino Pants ($290, down from $485) For more celebrity looks, be sure to check out Khole K's striped tube dress, Nikki Reed’s blazer and Kerry Washington’s leather dress.
Forgot To Shave? Keep Your Legs Covered In Cute Printed Pants This Summer
In theory, we'd all probably like to look pretty and keep cool in bright summery skirts and dresses when the weather is warm. In reality, however, showing your legs every day is simply not that easy. Between remembering to shave, weird (fake) tan lines and rain, every woman needs a stash of warm weather-appropriate pants and for us that means loose-fitting, pretty printed trousers. Now because we know you've probably already stocked up on dresses, we found 20+ pairs of amazing printed pants for you all under $75. And they're not cheap, bad-quality pants either! We're talking cute bottoms from Michael Kors, Vince Camuto, Topshop and more. Get yourself a few in the slideshow below. Be sure to check out colored jeans under $75, maxi dresses under $75 and neon sandals under $75. [Photo: Lee Oliveira]
Never Fear A Fat Day Again! This Season’s Drawstring Pants Mask Many A Flaw
Ladies, we've officially found a way to conquer fat days and it couldn't be more obvious--drawstring pants! And we're not talking about sweats, either. Whether you went a little overboard on chips, salsa and margaritas the night before or you're just feeling bloated, these cozy bottoms are bound to be your saving grace when you can't even fathom squeezing into a pair of skinnies. Now if you're worried about them being unflattering, don't. The key to working a pair of drawstring pants is simply pairing them with heels or wedges for a polished look. We promise, if you give these pants a try it's only a matter of time before you're fully hooked on drawstring trousers. Shop 15 of our favorites in the slideshow below. Don't miss these other spring trends, like colorful scarves, lace-up sandals and horizontal stripes. [Photo: Always Judging]
Leather Panel Leggings: The Non-Size-0 Answer To Leather Pants
I bought a pair of these Paige leather panel leggings and now I'm hooked. As a size 8 (and not a 00), I was always hesitant to the idea of leather pants, but spring's "fake it 'til you make it" version of them was the perfect starter pant for me. With leather or faux leather on the front or sides, and a forgiving, stretchy legging material everywhere else, they are the non-size-0 answer to leather pants. I wear them with everything - chunky sweaters and Rag & Bone booties this winter, and now colorful pointy-toe pumps and silk blouses this spring. And I can't stop buying them, either - I just picked up a side-panelled pair during a recent Topshop spree, and have my eyes on yet another pair from Rag & Bone. #sorrybankaccount If you're unsure of whether you can pull off leather pants, but love how they look and have leather envy this season, I highly (HIGHLY) suggest trying a pair. Click through the slideshow for my picks (literally--I own half of them). [Photo: Blue Lagoon]
We’re Not In Kanas Anymore–Gingham Gets A Fresh Update For Spring
When I think of gingham, two things come to mind: Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz and, unfortunately, "Gangham Style." (Thanks, Psy, for preventing us from ever pronouncing "gingham" correctly again). The pattern tends to feel more old McDonald than fashion forward (although I will admit that gingham bathing suits can be pretty cute). This spring, the staid fabric got a much-needed makeover from the likes of Marc by Marc Jacobs (above) and Kate Spade, who gladly accepted the challenge of making gingham "cool." Marc Jacobs, for one, showed an oversized version of the print in red and pink bold check. It took a little convincing, but I've come to the conclusion that gingham doesn't have to be reserved for picnic blankets or ladies who lunch. (This does not, however, prevent the song from getting stuck in my head). Plus, Michelle Obama rocked a gingham dress, and she made it look pretty awesome. Convinced? Want more spring trends?

Everything Is Metallic This Spring… No, Seriously, Everything
Things are getting futuristic this spring. From hologram nails to super-shiny wedding shoes, everything is getting the metallic treatment. We've told you about metallic jeans, metallic skirts and even smoking slippers. But now handbags, shirts, jackets and suits are all going metallic, too. These shimmery pieces are a cool alternative to spring's usual floral prints and bright colors. Shiny, reflective fabrics aren't going away anytime soon, so you might as well jump on the bandwagon if you haven't already. Click through the slideshow to see our roundup of spring's best metallic pieces. For more spring trends, check out tuxedo trousers, lattice clothing and accessories and printed sunglasses.

Keds Launched Clothing! You Can Now Match Your Slip-Ons To Your Skirts
In case you haven't noticed, Keds are having a major moment. First the sneaker brand teamed up with Kate Spade to create these adorable sneakers, then a Taylor Swift-inspired line of nautical-inspired kicks. And now they've just added a complete line of clothing to their already impressive offering (thanks, InStyle, for spotting it first!). While this isn't exactly their first endeavor in to clothing (remember that capsule collection for Opening Ceremony?), it is their biggest and best by far. This line is less hipster and more "cute sailor girl" than their OC one; you'll find nautical colors like red, white and blue, as well as classic prints like polka dots and stripes (their signature), plus surprising details like a lace pocket or a piped edge. Some pieces are available on macys.com now, with the full Spring 2013 collection be coming soon to keds.com. All the shoppable items are under $60, plus you can get an extra 10% off at Macy's with the code MORE. Click through the slide show to shop the available items now.

Hey Fancy Pants! Tuxedo Trousers Are Bound To Be Your New Favorite For Spring
We love dressing down a good pair of formal pants. A plain tee shirt or tank top tucked into a pair of dressy trousers or silk slacks is always an unexpected look that's appropriate for the business casual office, brunch with friends or after work drinks with coworkers. This spring, our pant of choice is the updated tuxedo trouser. While our man-friends have been rocking these to black tie events for years, ladies haven't gotten much of a chance to show what we can do with a good pair. Fortunately, they are universally flattering (the stripe down the side helps elongate the leg) so tuxedo pants will soon become your favorite go-to when you want to get a little fancier than denim. With designers such as Tibi, Halston Heritage, DVF and Elizabeth & James, as well as lower priced options from Club Monaco, J.Crew, and even Forever 21 jumping on board the trend, you'll have plenty to choose from. Shop our favorite tuxedo pants in the slideshow, or check out other bottoms we love: harem pants, printed pants, and silk pajamas! [Photo: My Style Pill]

How To Wear Tapered Trousers The Right Way
Tapered trousers, harem pants, drop-waist pants - whatever you call them, this pants trend is giving skinny jeans a run for their money. This spring, this hard-to-style trouser is set to be the runner-up pant (skinnies still reign supreme!), so you better figure out how to wear them--fast. We stalked some of our all-time favorite style blogs - Lee Oliveira, The Fancy Pants Report (how appropriate!) and Gal Meets Glam for inspiration on how to pull off these tricky bottoms. Here's the deal: You've got to start with a good tuck. If you don't normally tuck your shirt, now's the time to start. If you've always wondered how to do the perfect tuck - one that's loose enough without billowing too much or coming undone - then it's time to watch this video. You cannot wear a long shirt over harem pants--it looks sloppy. K? Next step is to wear something structured to balance out the "I Dream Of Jeanie" quality of the pants. Most of the street style stars go for a structured blazer in a neutral color like black or white, which is perfect since you already own one. Moving on. Shoe choice: Pointy-toed pumps are the best way to go. Sandals or ankle-strap heels will work, too. Avoid booties - they just don't look good with the tapered pant leg. Trust us. Look 1: We copied this gorgeous street style look from Lee Oliveira using floral pants from ASOS ($37.30), a Topshop black blazer ($80), Zara T-shirt ($25.90) and Nicholas Ajax Suede Pumps ($299). Look 2: You can get the exact pair of Forever21 harem pants that blogger The Fancy Pants Report wears above. Did we mention that they are $15? Yes. Pair them with a lace bomber jacket ($334.63, down from $557.73), a white tank (tucked in!!!!), and ankle-strap Jeffrey Campbell sandals ($125). Look 3: We love Gal Meets Glam. Not only did she style this look perfectly, but you can get her exact Theory blazer (on sale!!), Joie polka dot pants ($248), lace t-shirt ($155) and BaubleBar necklace ($46). We took out the booties (you know why) and replaced them with suede d'Orsay pumps from Vincent. We also found a cheaper look-alike of her polka dot harem pants from Forever21. They're just $19.
Pineapple Prints: You Don’t Need A Fruit Basket Hat Or Coconut Bra To Love ‘Em
When I first saw this cutout pineapple dress from Nasty Gal, I thought it was really cute but kind of random--of all the fruit in your fruit basket, pineapples are an odd print choice. Then, I was browsing Forever 21 and spotted this super cute pineapple print bathing suit top. It turns out the pineapple trend isn't random at all; the fruit was all over the spring 2013 runways of H&M and Moschino Cheap and Chic. From bathing suits to skirts, pineapple prints are fashion's answer to the coconut bra. Wear it in the summer, with a sense of humor and a smile (and blended drink in hand). Plus, Rihanna rocked it, so you know it's cool. Click through the slideshow to see our picks of the best pineapple-themed clothing and accessories.

How To Wear Spring’s Pastel Denim Trend No Matter Your Jean Size
We've all been told that dark pants are the most slimming. While this might be true, following this rule with result in the most boring spring wardrobe ever. One of this year's biggest trends is pastel denim. Don't be scared to ditch you dark jeans for the new easter-egg colored pants.

Spring’s Pajama Pant Trend Is In Full Force (As We Predicted)
Last spring, we noticed the pajama pant trend emerging, but it never did catch on. Fast forward to 2013 and it's in full force. What changed? We're guessing the embellished sweatshirt craze has something to do with it. After all, if you can wear a glorified sweatshirt to work, why not throw in elastic waist pants, too? Disclaimer: We do not advocate wearing both a graphic sweatshirt and a pajama pants to work. However, we have come up with a few styling tips to help you pull off this trend without looking like you just rolled out of bed. Always pair with heels. Any pair will do, but we especially like strappy sandals. Whatever you do though, avoid flats. They'll send out a much too casual vibe. Wear a basic top. We know that head-to-toe print is very "in" right now, but good judgement says to keep the party on the bottom and go plain Jane up top. We'd opt for a black or white silk blouse, tucked in. Add a statement necklace. The final step in classing up those PJ pants is throwing on a coordinating statement necklace. That's it! Your pajama pants + 3 pieces = instantly fashionable (and downright comfortable) ensemble. Shop our favorite pairs in the slideshow.

Still A Few Leg Lifts Away From Shorts? Try These Printed Pant Sets Instead
Last week, we gave you your first peek at spring's matchy-matchy trend with printed shorts suits in florals, stripes, animal prints, and more. But let's be real: we're not all supermodels and not everyone can pull off 3 inch graphic daisy dukes. Feeling weary about shorts? Well this week, we're back with a different take on the look--printed pants with matching tops. Designers like Tibi, 3.1 Philip Lim, Clover Canyon and Rachel Zoe are just a few of the designers who introduced these playful suit alternatives in eye-popping prints like brocade, checkerboard and even stars.

The Sequin Pant: How To Pull It Off Without Looking Like You’re Trying Too Hard
We love sequin pants--they're such a fun alternative to dresses for a holiday party, and give your day-to-day look an awesome glamorous edge--but although they look amazing on models and fashion bloggers, the average SHEfinds girl needs a little help pulling off this trend. Fret not though, because it can absolutely be done. Just follow the tips below, and you'll look like a fabulous it girl on her way to an event where her bottom half is the guest of honor (rather than a somewhat confused and sparkle-eccentric clown). It's easy: 1. Make sure they're fitted. You want these to accentuate your butt and legs, not hang harem-style. Go a size down if you need to. 2. Keep it simple on top. Wear a embellishment-free blouse--we'd suggest something in a solid color--and tuck it in. White and black look great with sequin print pants, as do jewel tones. 3. Dress it down with your shoes. This trend looks best with heels, but va-va-voom strappy ones just scream "trying too hard!" Instead, try a pair of black or brown booties. 4. Simple jewelry is key. A few stacked bangles and a delicate necklace are fine, but don't go overboard on the statement bling. 5. Top it off. Whether you choose a great structured blazer, a denim jacket, or a fitted cardigan, top off the look with an assertive, not overly feminine piece to contrast the pants. Ta-da! You and your pants are ready to par-tay! Now that you know how to wear them, browse our favorites in the slideshow. Check out our other fave pants trends: leather pants, party pants, and plaid pants!
Plaid Pants Go From ‘Pajama Party’ To Just ‘Party’ This Season
Once upon a time, plaid pants reminded us exclusively of pajamas--or at best, elementary school uniforms. This season, the casual print does a complete 180, and, with a little styling, proves it can effortlessly transition from the bedroom to the school room, board room, and VIP room at this year's holiday parties! The real conundrum remains: how should you wear plaid pants without them looking sloppy or unflattering? We've got you: just follow these three easy steps: 1) Pick a slim-fitting pant. Although these mimic sweats in print, they should be fitted well around your rear and legs. 2) Pair with heels. These will extend your legs and play up the fancy factor. 3) Tuck in a sexy top. Whether it's a sheer v-neck, or a silk tanktop, or a sparkly sheath, make sure your top is feminine and tucked in. This will ensure your pants emulate trousers, rather than PJs. 4) Add a piece of statement bling. A plaid print is loud, so don't go overboard--but we love the way this looks topped off with a sparkly collar necklace! Don't miss our other favorite pant trends--party pants, sweater leggings, and grown-up cords!
Forget Dresses, This Year’s Most Festive Look Is The Party Pant
Skirts and dresses for holiday parties are so last year--this season, why not stand out at your office bash, or your BFF's soiree, or that cute neighbors' cocktail hour in a pair of amazing statement pants? Printed, jacquard, sequined, or brocade, party pants will ensure you're the center of attention. Make sure they're fitted well--you want to look sexy, not clown-ish, and pair with a simple top. Check out our favorite party pants in the slideshow! Shop our other holiday season essentials: from fur vests, to velvet booties, to bronzers for a year round "tan!". [Photo: Atlantic-Pacific]
Narciso Rodriguez For Kohl’s Hit A Day Early — And Is Already Selling Out
Narciso Rodriguez's much-anticipated collection for Kohl's is here -- an entire day early. The Narciso Rodriquez for DesignNation line, which starts at $30, is filled with ladylike (and flattering) separates that you will having you upping the ante of your work wardrobe. Think silk tuxedo-stripe trousers, colorblock dresses with genius miracle paneling (makes you look 5 lb. thinner instantly), tweed and lurex jackets (mixed media!), oversized wool coats and even pajama-style silk pants that you can rock with stilettos for work and play. The 63-piece line is filled with so many on-trend, flattering staples that we're not wholly surprised it's already selling out; you can no longer get these Colorblock Ponte Leggings or Floral Tee. But don't fret, my pet, there are plenty of other great pieces to shop now. For more awesome collaborations, check out Kate Spade x Keds, Rachel Roy x Deepak Chopra and NARS x Andy Warhol.
Track Pants Are For Anywhere But The Gym Or The Couch This Fall
This season high-end designers are channeling their inner high school athletes and serving up a whole host of sports-inspired pieces - we're looking at you, wedge sneakers and varsity jackets. But there's a new kid in town, the luxe track pant. Now, we're not talking about those velour sweatsuits with "Juicy" emblazoned across the derrière; we're talking about some seriously chic pants by Rag & Bone, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Stella McCartney, and more that just so happen to have an elastic waistband. And when these pants are paired with heels and a tailored blazer, you've got the makings of a "shut it down" ensemble. Take a look at our slideshow and pick your favorite pair. For more fall dressing, read up on the wide belt trend, Pantone's color of the year, and moto boots. [Photo: WWD]
Cords Have Come A Long Way Since You Last Rocked Them In Middle School
I've personally always loved cords -- they're the perfect jeans-alternative for fall -- but I understand the bias some people have against them. If you haven't rocked a pair since the 90s, you might not know how far this material has come in the last decade or two. This season, cords are looking better than ever - they're skinny-cut, cute, and not just for prepsters and moms any more. And it looks like the authorities on ready-to-wear agree; denim favorites 7 For All Man Kind, Rag & Bone, Hudson, Citizens of Humanity and Current Elliott all included cord styles in their fall lines. Looks like my jeans are going to have to sit this season out, because cords are officially (gasp!) on-trend. Want more fun denim alternatives?

How To Rock Printed Silk Pants–Without Looking Like You Just Rolled Out Of Bed
We love the printed silk pant trend for casual summer days when it's too hot to have anything clinging to your skin, but we sometimes have trouble figuring out just how to wear it without looking like we stepped out in our pajama pants. The trick? Size down. If you're usually a medium, snag these trousers in a small to get a cool tailored look. Then, pair with a tucked in top, slouchy cropped sweater, or structured blouse to enhance your top half. Finally, throw on an elegant and understated pendant, and don't forget your heels--this trend is hard to pull off without 'em.

Amanda Seyfried’s Floral J Brand Jeans Are $200 And Still Available (Not Bad!)

We first spotted celebrities' skinny jeans in a subtle snow leopard print, which made this washed out pattern an easy trend to try.
