These Skirts, Shorts & Slacks Will Instantly Elevate Your Style

By Danielle Naer

It’s time to graduate from baggy sweats to something with a little more polish. We’re talking about those silhouettes that are easy to wear comfortably around the house, but also those that you won’t have to do an outfit check before you walk out the door. (At some point in this ordeal, we’ve all considered stepping out in our pajamas, or whatever your closet’s equivalent is.)

Ahead, browse the skirts, shorts, and slacks that are just elevated enough to phase out your sweats — and yet, just as cozy for Zoom meetings and lounging around in.


Pressed, Neutral Trousers


Just a little something to signal that you put some effort into your look. Trade up your heather gray sweats for a bone-hued trouser, like the best-selling styles below. VINCE’s belted pant offers the ultimate relaxed trouser with a wide-leg fit that’s totally on-trend.


Pleated Midi Skirt


Prada brought back circle skirts for Spring 2021 at Fashion Week, and the roomy, ‘60s-worthy trend is primed for comfort. Pleats will liven up the traditional silhouette with ease. For bonus points, try to score a knit style, for that extra-cozy appeal that will be impossible to tell apart from your sweats.


Crisp Linen Shorts


If your city is already in that 70-degree range, skip trousers and go right for shorts. Blanched white styles offer endless combinations — whether a tangerine cashmere sweater, an eggshell-colored blouse, or a long-sleeve with navy stripes. Tie in cognac leather accessories for a punch that’ll look great all summer long.
