It’s no secret that I live in leggings in the winter. In fact I try to pass them off as fashionable pants while I get all high and mighty and judge you wearing your yoga pants. That’s right. Bring on the “leggings are not yoga pants type pants” war ladies. I’m ready for you. And you totally didn’t see me in my yoga pants on Monday did you????
Anyway, while I try to convince myself that leggings are real pants – I mean not REAL pants – because OMG leggings are not pants. Cover your bums ladies. LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTS – I also admit that leggings are the most comfortable article of clothing ever. Except maybe fleece pj bottoms. But please don’t leave the house ever in those. Unless you are trying to embarrass your tween at the bus stop.
Which is why this legging-loving-girl also loves her jeggings. But I still don’t love putting on jeans every day.
So what is a great pair of pants that feels like a legging but has more structure and you can dress them up or down and even go out for a night on the town(even though I haven’t been out on the town since 2001)? Who goes out anymore? I think my pants need to. The tuxedo style pant!
What I love about a tuxedo pant is that it doesn’t completely hug your butt – but still gives it a nice shape – but then goes more straight down your leg rather than hugging your legs and showing everything. SO – ladies tuxedo pants are PANTS and you don’t have to cover your butt – so they are more versatile and so dang awesome on almost every body, and they are COMFY. Which this old lady loves!
This is what I wore just on a typical day of carting my three kids all over the great Earth to dance and piano and school and stuff. I also probably went grocery shopping. Comfy and fashionable. Win/Win.
And yes I know I wear a lot of browns and blacks – but they go with everything.
Astrid is in head to toe Naartjie this week. She’s making sure I will never be a famous fashion blogger.
This is a super easy outfit to put together. You NEED a pair of tuxedo pants in your closet.
What’s your go-to winter-casual-yet-fashionable-remember-not-to-wear-leggings-at pants-outfit?? Do you wear tuxedo pants?
