Flowy Pants and Structured Shorts for an Effortless Appeal
Loose-fitting, yet structured pants are both comfortable and chic. When it comes to choosing the best fit for a longer torso, consider how high the pants or shorts hit on the waistline and if you need a longer or shorter length.
How you style them also makes a difference, so we’re sharing a few of our favorite bottoms and what to pair them with to create an array of outfit choices when packing for your next getaway.
Embodying the ultimate balance of classy and casual, the black Pareo Pant is a go-to wardrobe addition. These flowy, lightweight pants can be worn when lounging by the pool or headed to the beach. The embroidery detailing adds extra allure that pairs just as well with your favorite long torso one piece or bikini as it does a bodysuit or tie-front top.
The pants tie in the front, creating a slight v-shape that creates a subtle curve to a long torso by hitting higher on the mid-section. Pair with your favorite solid color bikini top or one piece. Another option is to go playful by wearing them with the trendy Scarlet Dani Crop Top. The leopard print creates a fun and flirty look.
