This weekend I posted a K/R

The brief: add longer pants to my closet for F/W. Try a wider leg for the 'swish'. Nudge my style in a more 'alluring' direction without forgetting my mostly casual lifestyle.

While kindly commenting that the Zara trousers were flattering, some questioned if they were right for my general style vibe and lifestyle. Jules and SaraD8 identified the high tailored waist ran counter to my goals and suggested a slouchier low slung fit. Joy wisely noted that after close fitting pants, wide legs might take some getting used to.

So, I did some more shopping and brought these jogger style pants home. I have to say that from the get-go,they FELT more like 'me'. The fabrication is a heafty linen/synthetic blend. The style is jogger waist (stretchy waist with an internal drawstring tie.) The leg is 10in wide compared to the Zara pant's 12in. (My other long pants are 7-8in wide.)

I've styled them similarly to my first post. What do you think?

Appologies to Bennett -
