This season, soft pants are the new black. Everywhere you turn, this oh-so-comfy style can be found in a variety of shapes — from sleek and tapered to wide and flowy. In addition to their covetable comfort, soft pants are flattering on a variety of body shapes, and can be mixed and matched with a plethora of pieces in your wardrobe. Here’s a look at three ways to wear your new go-to closet staple.
Calvin Klein Soft Pants: Three Ways
1.) Punctuate with a Pop of Color
These Calvin Klein black and white print tapered leg pants are easy to pair with a variety of tops and accessories, thanks to the neutral color palette and the understated pattern. I love to accent my black and white clothing with pops of vivid color, like hot pink, electric blue and vibrant orange. Whether it’s a brightly colored tank or tee, or a colorful statement necklace, handbag or shoes, adding a new hue is the perfect way to brighten up your soft pants this season.
2.) Go Uber-Casual
Soft pants can be dressed up or dressed down to accommodate any occasion, from work to date night to brunch with the girls. I’m a big fan of the athletic influences that have been cropping up everywhere from the runways to the street scene, and try to integrate these sporty styles into my everyday looks whenever appropriate. To that end, I paired a funky BCBGeneration statement sweatshirt with the Calvin Klein soft pants for a casual yet chic ensemble. Want to add even more kick to your sporty chic? Add a piece of statement jewelry, like this Vince Camuto necklace, for a fashion-forward accent.
3.) Go with the Flow
A general rule of dressing to best accentuate your shape is to pair tailored bottoms with flowy tops and vice versa. However, there is a time and place to break every rule! This summer, flowy tops and relaxed soft pants work together like Audrey Hepburn a string of pearls. Try this easy breezy look for the best in laid-back summer style. Plus, to give the ensemble an edge, add sexy sandals or a structured clutch.
