Sometimes I'm just dying to wear a pair of loose fitting pants.
Just the other day I was noticing at the grocery store that it's no longer taboo to wear your workout clothes or yoga pants out in public. Even a few years ago I felt more than slightly frumpy wearing my comfy clothes out to grab a couple gallons of milk. Now it seems, more than half of the women you see out and about on a weekend are wearing some form of athletic wear. This isn't an overnight phenomenon, but I feel like the pendulum has really swung wide lately to comfortable (and tight) clothing for women.
I won't even touch on women's attire in other countries besides the United States, I know dress codes vary wildly across the world.
I'm not judging the athleisure wear trend, in fact, most of the time I fully embrace it. But sometimes I yearn for the days of loose pants. Remember how a really great pair of bootcut or trouser style jeans felt? Of course, I'm mostly being facetious, I still own all those styles of pants and wear them occasionally. These days, I tend to grab my old standbys and less the thigh-hugging, calf-strangling, belly-pinching skinny jeans of years past. I've been searching around a bit to find more comfortable options to add to my closet (including dresses!).
1. dress from Modcloth
2. boyfriend jeans from American Eagle (my go-to for cheap, good looking denim)
3. boy jeans from Madewell
4. comfy dress from Sonnet James
5. trekkie pant from Athleta
