Happy Monday ladies. Today’s Look of The week is by request. I’m sharing how I style lantern legged pants. What’s that you ask? They’re typically a pull on pant with a wide full leg and seam accents below the knee. The hem is narrower than the leg but they’re not harem pants.
You first saw me wearing them here. A black and white outfit with a red bag and French Kande. Today I’m wearing another black and white outfit with a different red bag and French Kande. I purchased both pairs of lantern pants at boutiques and have no link for them.
Am I repeating my look? You bet! I like to duplicate looks that work for me because there’s no reason to reinvent the wheel. Today’s pants are a different fabric and drape more. I’m wearing boots rather than sandals and velvet rather than cotton.
If you Google lantern pants you’ll find leg variations all the way up to MC Hammer pants! Some are cropped and most are made of a knit fabric.
I’ve seen them worn with tunic tops but it’s not a great look on me. I balance a wide bottom with a slender top and vice versa. Denim jackets are perfect for this because they give a relaxed vibe which feels right with these casual pants.
Artful Home carries several versions, here and here. Eileen Fisher often includes them in her collections. I’m beginning to see linen versions for summer and thinking a colored pair would make a fun addition to my wardrobe.
Have you worn lantern pants?
Do you remember MC Hammer?
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
