Trickle-down Fashiononimcs

If you’re having a day where you just want to be lying on a couch, but you have errands to run, these are the pants to wear out. The world will think you’re put together, even if you feel like a mess. These faux-silk drawstring pants were so great that I bought them in this gray and also an army inspired green.

I’ve had my eye on this style for quite some time, and it took them a year to make their way down from the upper echelons of high-end boutiques to the budget friendly racks of Marshalls, but it was well worth the wait. The jury is still out (sort of) on whether or not economics trickles down, but it’s safe to say that fashion styles, given time, have a greater ability to infiltrate closets of all budget ranges.

I love the gold accents on the drawstrings. They really drew me to these pants.  You can bring the bottom cuffs higher and fold the fabric over, or you can wear the pants fully stretched out. IMG_1041

If you feel a little too stuffy, a denim jacket is good for the fall air and softens the look.

In this case, it adds a completely different texture.

Taking this look out at night is outrageously fun.

Like, outrageously. If an outfit makes you feel this way, rock it.

Some gold arm candy and unexpected red shoes.

These versatile pants could pair with a tucked int tank top, a cropped t-shirt, and even a sequined, bulky Cosby sweater and granny loafers, if you’re into wild street style.

  1. trickle down economics doesn’t work but trickle down fashionomics sure does! LOVE THOSE PANTS. want want want. The idea of wearing sweatpant-like-pants and not looking like you are is the best idea to me. On the weekends I live in PJs basically and this would be a way to not look it. xo
