I’ve been thinking about pants with regard to this Make Your Own Basics series and have decided that while “pants” are obviously a wardrobe building block, there’s really no single shape or length of them that is arguably always in style — it’s more a matter of what are you interested in right now. (I should acknowledge while saying this that there will definitely be some of you willing to argue the point — please do!) I’ve included jeans in our rundown of the basics, but with the broader category of pants, there are just too many variables. It’s like trying to say “tops” or “bottoms” are a wardrobe basic. Yes. But to get any more specific than that feels impossible to me.
With these noble and notable exceptions: the Sweatpant and the Pajama Pant. Which brings us to loungewear—
SWEATPANT: Hudson Pant by True Bias would be even more classic if you were to swap out the cuffs for elastic
PAJAMAS: Carolyn Pajamas by Closet Case Files are the ultra-classic, equally suitable for pajama-inspired daywear
With that, I think we’re headed into accessories, underwear and outerwear.
And don’t forget Summer of Basics starts in 2 days!
