I’m not a trousers person. While I love and own an assortment of bottoms, by stiff jeans to kicky culottes and tailored trousers, they require so more effort compared to my midi dresses and skirts. With fuller thighs and muscular nerves, I struggle to find fits which are both comfortable and flattering, but I keep trying (even when a pants mood strikes, the procedure is generally a frustrating 15 or so minutes of me trying on alternatives before I give up and default to a skirt or dress ). The Summer is even harder for me Although this is a dilemma – trousers feel like a suffocating straitjacket for my own thighs, which is the reason why I abandon them completely to prevent such discomfort, after heat is a factor. Who will relate?

My anti-pants position is officially finished! This girl has found herself a more comfortable, versatile, and cheap pair of pants that are universally flattering and versatile to boot: the POPSUGAR Wide-Leg Paper Bag Pants ($25, initially $50). In a maritime-blue colour, this high-waist shape feels as nice as a glass of Rosé to a balcony overlooking Lake Como (OK, not the most relatable comparison, but you get my drift, yes? They are really beautiful!) .

Featuring a cropped shape and roomy wide leg, the trousers have a fun and swingy match to them with a still-tailored look that is fantastic for the office (though they can easily be dressed with temptations and tanks around the weekend). And cut from a cotton blend material that feels like lace, they are super breathable, which means I won’t be on the point of spontaneous combustion once the weather soars over 80 levels\. Add in the fact that they have a belt that cinches in at the waist, and also, well, I questioning if I dare believe myself a pants person now\.

Ahead, see the way I styled these comfy pants for a day at the workplace (which absolutely transitioned to drinks later ). Then, keep my look. So jump on it!
