Say hello to your new #athleisure staple. Combining the comfort of sweats with the polish of trousers, these chic drawstring pants fit in as comfortably with the dress code at a creative office as they do at an endless weekend brunch. And let's face it: Who can resist the siren call of pants that don't pinch your waist—or force you to suck in your stomach? Pass the truffle fries again, please.
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.
