This Ugly Pant Is Cool Again

We’re always looking for ways to change up our everyday uniform (read: denim), though the revival of an otherwise nerdy pant style has taken us by surprise: khakis. Yes, you read that correctly, they’re suddenly shockingly chic. Hear us out. All over the spring-summer runways, the throwback slacks (we know, your parents likely use this term) took on new life with wide legs, high paper-bag waists, and modern details like lace-up fronts and utility accents. The key to staying stylish is finding a pair with structure in order to ensure a fresh-feeling fit that works well with tops of all kinds, from fitted tanks to voluminous blouses. In other words, khakis are cool, and our edit ahead has stylish options aplenty. Get after it.
