A sporty pant is a must for fall. The athleisure wear trend is a force to reckon with and if trainers and neoprene/mesh pieces feel too sporty for your taste, this trend is a less direct tie to the athletic wear movement. Plus, the silhouette is a refreshing departure from traditional trousers. It brings a youthful and sophisticated attitude to any look. The loose and slouchy fit allows them to feel like easy-to-wear athletic wear even though they are far more polished.

How To Wear It:
To make this look office-appropriate, choose dressier fabrics like silk, cashmere, or leather (and don't forget your heels). Counter the pants' slouchiness with a more structured top (think blazer, boxy blouse, or fitted cashmere sweater). Pick a style with a cinched ankle—it reins in the volume, streamlining the look.
