The Most Comfortable Pants to Wear (and No, They're Not Jeans)

Hilary George-Parkin

Jeans aren't the only option to consider if you want to wear pants this season—or just can't get away with short shorts at the office.

Don't forgo wide-leg pants in lightweight fabrics like linen and cotton right now: Paired with a button-down or tailored top, they're an easy way to look polished for a 9-to-5, and after hours, you can wear them with a cropped tank and platform heels for a ventilated yet not super skimpy.

It-girl label Staud gave the style its stamp of approval (several times over, in fact) in its capsule collection for Net-a-Porter, and our favourite of the bunch, a rose-coloured pair with pajama-inspired piping, is begging to be worn with a graphic tee and white cat-eye sunglasses. Likewise, cool-again khakis won't invite comparisons to your dad's go-to slacks if they're paired with a crop top.

Scroll on to see how six of our most stylish Instagram follows are wearing wide-leg pants, and shop picks from Pixie Market, Tome, Mango, and more.
