Thank Us Later: Danskin Supplex Leggings Are The Only Pants You’ll Ever Need

You know what sucks? Pants. Pants suck. Skirts also suck. Dresses can be OK, but usually they suck. If I could wear cotton track shorts all the time and not look like a total freak, I would. My goal, when dressing, is to basically have nothing on my legs. Barring the ability to do that…

Fancy Sweatpants Are The New Birkenstock Sandals Of The High Fashion World

It’s the eve of New York Fashion Week, and things are about to get real high fashion up in this bitch. Which is why, before all the crazy runway show coverage started, we thought we’d pull you aside for a moment to have a little discussion. High-fashion sweatpants are a thing now. Yes, they are.

Amelia’s Style Challenge: Three Summer Pants Outfits For Under $300

You know how it’s so annoying the way some people refer to a pair of pants as a “pant”? Well, sorry to say, I have become one of those people. I say this, because Amelia recently came to me asking for advice on how to expand her pant selection in the summer months. After all,…

Do Not Want: Grandma’s Blanket Pants

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…

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…

Would You Wear … Kaleidoscope Pants?

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]…

Dream Bottoms: Penis Leggings

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…

10 Pairs Of Really Ugly, Super Expensive Designer Pants

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…

Shopping Guide: 12 Perfectly Patterned Leggings

Patterned leggings are a simple way to seem dressed up without putting a whole heck of a lot more effort into your outfit. If you’re going to go with a crazy patterned bottom, keep the rest of your outfit plain and basic. Or else you’ll look like a clown. Which, you know, might be your…

Palazzo Pants Make A Return … Let’s Rejoice?

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…

Do Not Want: Thakoon Twisted Layered Leggings

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…

My boyfriend had the bright idea to introduce me to his parents for the first time at their annual holiday party. Fortunately, the party is taking place at their home so it’s more casual than formal. Unfortunately, I have no idea what to wear. Please help me! – Beth
Wow! That’s a doozy. You’re…

Hot Or Not: Wool “Jogging” Pants By Band Of Outsiders

Behold, wool “jogging” pants brought to you by Band of Outsiders. Basically, that’s a fancy way to say “really warm sweatpants.” We’re not exactly sure what kind of customer Band of Outsiders is trying to lure with these slacks. Runners who are always cold? People who like the “wool” part of pants but not really…

Cheapskate: Cargo Pants For Fall

Amelia and I have been lusting after the J Brand skinny cargo pants all the celebs have been wearing. But those pants cost more than $200, and we can’t justify spending that much on a garment we can’t wear every single day or at least for really special occasions. To satisfy our cargo desires while…

Would You Keep Your Legs Cool In A Pair Of Sheer Pants?

The other day, while walking down the street, I noticed (without trying) that the woman in front of me was wearing shorts sheer enough that her undies were completely visible. The shorts were so transparent there was absolutely no mistaking she knew what she was showing the world. Sheer clothes are big for summer, and…
