Happy Sunday ladies. I know some of you are expecting snow but here in Northern California, we’ve been slammed with full-on heat. Our temps hit the mid 90’s last week so the furnace is off and we’re running the AC. Hello spring. It may cool back down but for now, I’m wearing sandals and linen.
Today I’m styling my newest lantern pants. These are the
I have several pairs of pants with this shape but this is my first pair in linen. I love the creative vibe of lantern pants and style them with classic pieces to make the look my own.
- they’re usually a pull-on pant
- have multiple vertical seams to allow leg shaping
- are straighter through the hip
- widen to be full through the knee
- often have a cropped leg
- taper in at the ankle.
It’s a very popular shape and easy to wear. Proportion is important to keep in mind when styling this pant.
How to Style
- Opt for a slimmer top to balance the leg width
- Wear with a shorter top that allows most of the pant to show.
- Because the leg is cropped, an open shoe or sandal is most flattering
These pants have a front leg seam with pockets, which I love. I’m a big fan of pockets so always appreciate them.
This day I wore them with a cream colored blouse, ivory sweater (I knit several years ago) my favorite pearl earrings, pearl lariat necklace, silver bracelet, and black sandals.
By this day the weather was sweltering. I’d switched out my red toe polish to a cooler look and wore the pants with a black cotton tank and sandals, necklace, silver bracelet and a featherlight cotton shirt tied at my waist for shaping.
Because I’m short these pants are ankle length on me which is perfect because I don’t wear cropped pants.
Have you tried lantern pants?
Thanks for reading and have a great day.
A big thank you to Artful Home for partnering on this post. They supplied the pants and I was compensated. All opinions are my own.
