Forget Jeans! The Pants We Love This Season Are…

You knew I was going to say velvet right? Velvet pants and jeans are going to be my jam this fall and winter. One, they feel luxurious. Two, they add texture and dimension to any outfit. Three, they go with everything you already have in your closet. Four, it’s easy to find velvet pants and jeans for under $100, actually even under $50. Just be sure they look rich and not cheap. I’ve already expressed my love for velvet jackets and velvet shoes. So why not go all in with your bottom half?

Get Waisted! Tie Waist Pants

One summer trend both Carol and I have noticed and have grown to like is tie waist pants. One caveat, they need to be cropped with either a wide leg or a tapered leg. Now, we are not talking about sweatpants or pants with an elastic waist you pull on and tie with something resembling a shoelace. These pants have a discernible sash or bow that ties in front or to the side.
