What To Wear On Thanksgiving: Elastic-Waist Everything–Pants, Skirts, More
If we could, we'd wear our pajamas to Thanksgiving. What's the point of dressing up for a holiday when all you do is sit around a house and eat all day? Of course we'd like to look presentable for our family and all of those group photos, but housing a solid serving (or two or three) of turkey and mashed potatoes isn't comfy if you're formally dressed. Even a pair of jeans sounds painful. Which is why we decided that Thanksgiving calls for drawstring pants and skirts so our bottom's waistbands expand with our waistlines. (Don't freak out, it's temporary, obvs.) Pair your elastic trousers with a cashmere sweater and oxfords, or team your drawstring skirt with a chambray button-down and ankle boots. You can still look polished without compromising your comfort—or your turkey dinner. Check out our slideshow to see what you'll be wearing this Thanksgiving. [Photo: Cheetah is the New Black]
The Lazy Girl’s Must-Have For Spring? Printed Track Pants (Side Stripes Included).
When we predicted that side-stripe pants were bound to be a trend this spring, we didn't realize the sporty look was going to attract both high-end fashion houses like Alexander McQueen and Emilio Pucci to a major contemporary brand like Elie Tahari. So it seems like everyone wants to be comfortably stylish this season. And we totally get it. The loose-fitting pants are super cozy and actually look good with both a pair of fashion sneakers or high heels, which makes them easy to dress up or down. So what's the difference between when they first appeared on the runway a few seasons ago and now? As opposed to their debut in a slew of solid colors, they're adorned with tons of different prints and patterns. The side-stripe on both sides are still a total must, thanks to their ability to flatter and lengthen your legs. Check out our slideshow to see which printed pants you'll soon be wearing 24/7. Don't forget to learn about more trends to shop: eyelet pieces, flat sandals (under $50!), and palm tree prints. [Photo Credit: xssat street fashion, Lee Oliveira, What I Wore, A House In The Hills]
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]
