Love It or Leave It: The Dressy Track Pant
This is a trend that started a few years ago and never really went away. It has however evolved over the last few years and is now starting to become a real "thing". This trend of course is the dressy track pant, or the slouchy trouser, or whatever that particular brand likes to refer to it as. At least the first evolution - the harem pant - seems to not be getting as much traction anymore. But even with a more modern clean-looking silhouette, the question remains, is this trend silly or stylish?

I have my answer: I'm voting for stylish. It surprises me because I was not even remotely a supporter of the harem pant, and at first I wasn't sure about these even though they are WAY more tailored looking, but I'm on board. That being said, I have yet to find a pair for myself, or even tried on a pair to see how they look on me. But I like the way they look - even the ones with the elasticized ankle! I also have yet to see them on a variety of body shapes, and I have a feeling that they are not meant to be worn by everyone (but can't the same be said for most trends/articles of clothing?). The billowing front and thigh area could be a force to be reckoned with...
For now, I will enjoy and admire this trend from afar but enjoy it nonetheless. How do you feel about this style?
