Way back in the day, my grandma had a crocheted afghan in her living room that looked exactly like these pants. I used to wrap myself up in it on her cozy couch to watch Nickelodeon while she plied me for family gossip with treats from the candy drawer. I had no idea that one day someone would take that blanket, sew it in the vague shape of pants, and sell it for 300 bucks at Neiman Marcus. [$297, Neiman Marcus]
Screw convention: Just because summer’s coming to an end doesn’t mean that we should give up our summery, fresh looks. That’s why we’re really feeling floral jeans and trousers this fall — they bring a hint of spring and summer color to colder climes. We found 10 pairs of pants under $100 — most are actually even under $50 — so that you can bring a bit of warm weather to your winter wardrobe.
These crazy colorful pants caught my eye on Pinterest, because really, how could they not? The multicolored kaleidoscopic print makes neon pink jeggings seem totally bland. They’re definitely visually interesting, but not exactly easy to wear. Tell us: would you dare to rock these fancy pants? [$90, Modcloth]
Printed pants are hot right now, but these penis leggings take prints to an arousing level. Take a closer look. That’s a d**k print. Suffice it to say, I must own these “Is that a c**k or your legs?” pants even though they cost $150. I will wear them all the time, and wear them proudly. I believe they are what you’d call a conversation piece. [Dlisted]
As wise poet and personal role model LuAnn deLesseps once crowed — actually she autotuned it — “money can’t buy you class.” Money also can’t buy you style, as evidenced by the wide array of horribly ugly pants on offer by high end designers these days. Do you have $600 and no abiding sense of taste and the desire to look like a meth-addict out for her first post-prison cig break? We’ve got some really wowzer designer trousers just for you. Check them out in our gallery of wildly overpriced ugly pants.
I love how Mr. Ed coordinated his jeans with his bridle. [That's So Ratchet]
Gap has built its reputation around its classic denim jeans, but this fall, the retailer is shaking things up. The Gap 1969 collection will feature deep, saturated colors like the rust corduroy legging above. Gap has also developed unique washes. Its legging jean will be available in a gummy texture along with subtle camouflage and leopard prints. These definitely aren’t your regular blue jeans, but the corduroy leggings and legging jeans are just as affordable and comfortable. I lived in my Gap cords and black legging jeans last winter because they have just the right amount of stretch to be comfortable, but also hold their shapes.

I remember 1993 like it was yesterday. CeCe Peniston was a “few-hit wonder,” and if you weren’t into grunge fashion, then you probably decked yourself out in the glamorous ’70s look that was in vogue at the time. Spurred along by pop singers like CeCe, palazzo pants had a major moment in ’93. They were a super roomy hybrid of bell bottoms and wide leg pants … and were extremely comfy. But I never expected this trend to get a redux because, well, maxi skirts are just as roomy and don’t remind folks of culottes. Keep reading »
Look, I know we’re always looking for new pantsventions (that’s pants inventions) to cover the lower halves of our bodies, but really, this is just not right. Thakoon is a bonafide genius when it comes to structured style, but we’ll definitely be skipping these “layered” leggings, which are just a $378 way to look like a total schlub. I guarantee, I can recreate the Thakoon look with a couple of off-the-rack items from my local Kmart, but no one would ever mistake it for high-fashion. But if you’ve got an extra $400 to spare, by all means, have at ‘em. [$378, Shopbop] Keep reading »
