A few weeks ago, I realized that the ratty old lounge pants I was donning were more than a decade old. They were stretched out, pilling, stained, and just plain ugly from age.
Luckily, Old Navy was having a huge sale, so while picking up some new PJs for Claire, I decided to get a pair of the Petite Women’s Wide-Leg Active Pants for myself.
Admittedly, they don’t look that great in the product photos.
BUT YOU GUYS.
These pants are just…amazing. They’re soooo much better-looking in person than in the pictures. The fabric is the perfect thickness, there’s just the right amount of stretch, the slight bootleg cut is flattering, and IT COMES IN PETITE AND TALL SIZES.
Additionally, these pants have pockets. POCKETS, people! I don’t know why more lounge/workout pants have pockets!
If you don’t believe me, just take a look at the 885 (as of this writing) glowing reviews!
I also love that you can dress them up or down.
I can’t speak for the taller ladies, but my fellow shorties can attest to the fact that it can be difficult to find nice, petite-length pants. Especially lounge/workout pants.
These aren’t exactly CHEAP at $19.50 a pop, but they’re certainly more affordable than many of your other brand-name pants. (Plus, Old Navy has sales practically every other week!)
J loves them too — he says that he likes the way my butt looks in them.
I have since purchased another pair in the charcoal color, and two additional pairs in black, so that I now have two of each color.
And I only wish Old Navy made these in additional colors, because I would snatch them up in a heartbeat!
