I used to think wide leg pants were only acceptable for professional attire, but lately they have taken on a whole new meaning that I’ve adapted to pretty quickly. Most people who know me know that I hate jeans for the most part. They are just uncomfortable and most of the time unnecessary when living in Southern California. Patterned trousers are the perfect alternative because they shield you from the sun in the hotter months, but are still a pretty thin material to avoid breaking a sweat. Paired with a jean jacket and tank, they are perfect for any occasion.
