I have to agree with Lena Dunham. I’m pretty anti-pants. There was some point in the early 2000s when women’s pants became too tight and too low, and my love for pants started to fade (it was slightly renewed in 2007 when I discovered jeggings and again in 2013 when I bought my first pair of Levi’s). But today, my pant-love is fully restored in the form of the trendiest anti-pants out there. I’m talking luxe sweatpants (think: leather), structured leggings (but let me clear, these still aren’t pants and a long top is a must, in my book), and silky harem pants. We can all be thankful that pants these days are veering more Man Repeller than Christina Aguilera.
Below are my favorite anti-pants looks.
