What I am loving this summer is the drawstring pants. I first noticed the drawstring pants from Stylemint. If you have not heard of Stylemint, it is a “of-the-month” clothing retailer that tailors recommendations to your suited style. About a month ago, Stylemint featured a terry cloth version called the Tribeca that can be worn with a blazer or with a boxy tee and loafers.
I am fascinated how a casual piece of clothing normally worn lounging around can now be worn in broad daylight. At Kenneth Cole, this drawstring pants caught my eye. Initially, when I saw these lightweight drawstring pants, I thought, “My mom will kill me if I wore these pants outside.”
However, the drape and silkiness of these pants are perfect for summer! I could not wait to wear these pants. The cropped length with zips gives off a very edgy vibe that I love to incorporate in to my style. Knotting a boxy tee helps balance the silhouette of the pants and defines my body shape better. The only complaint I have is the wrinkle prone material. I wish it also has a bit more stretch. But I can’t wait to pair these drawstring pants with a more work appropriate look.
Would you like to see these pants dressed up or down?
