Patterned pants is a concept I’ve been struggling with. Especially after one of my children’s friends called out, “that lady’s in her pajamas” from the back seat of my car last week. The woman in question was rocking the latest elastic-waist, navy patterned pants and I had to agree, she did look like she was in her P.J.’s. Out of the mouths of babes.
I love black and white (that never goes out of fashion in my closet), and once I saw these windowpane check pants, I was smitten. I think they manage to avoid the pajama-look, the cut is super flattering and to be back in a high-waisted, pleat-front pair of pants after so long in tight, low-rise skinnies, is pretty nice.
I’ve paired them with wedge ankle strap shoes from here, which are perfect for day wear or even casual evening as the weather takes it’s time to cool down in Los Angeles.
