Anyone else tend to avoid jeans as often as possible? In high school and college I used to throw on a pair of denim jeans on the daily and now I question how I was able to wear them 24/7 without wanting to die… I’ve especially found myself lately gravitating towards sweats and wide-leg pants, avoiding wearing denim if I don’t have to — I just value being comfortable a lot more as I get older but I also want to look cute and dressy without having to wear a dress all the time!
Now that we’re coming up on Spring, our choice of bottoms is becoming much more broad with lightweight materials and fun, bright prints! I know one of the biggest concerns when shopping these new styles will be finding both comfortable AND flattering pants…because no one wants to sacrifice one for the other!
I decided to go through my favorites styles in my closet and searched the internet for my top picks for pants that you can wear this Spring instead of denim. These include joggers, culottes, work pants, wide leg pants, printed pants, flares, etc! Let me know in tonight’s Instagram post if you have any go-to pairs I missed or need to know about!
Jogging/sweat pant: comfy, trendy, and easy to dress up or casual! Throw on a graphic tee or tank with a denim jacket — you’ll be cute and comfortable.

Fancy jogging/sweat pant: textures and prints can really dress an average jogger/sweat pant up, making them an easy transition from a day to night look while remaining comfortable and stylish!

Work pant: not only does a sleek pair of slacks look professional, but very dressy and can be a really comfortable pant to wear outside the office — if you find the right pair! Make them a little more fun with a stylish belt and a bright Spring-y color.
Cropped & culotte pants: bare some ankles and throw on a sandal, this is THE warm weather pant of the season! Printed, textured, or solid colored, these pants are easy to style, flow, and comfortable for day’s wear.
Wide-leg pant/flares: comfy, breezy, and cute. The wide-leg pant is the sister to the cropped pant, they’re just a little longer and sassier! I’m featuring the red paisley flare pant above and they’re so easy to dress up or go casual.
Paper-bag pant: belted or tied, this uniquely shaped pant is flattering for every body type and can be styled professionally or casual without sacrificing comfortability! Style with a pretty blouse or graphic tee for a day or night look.
Utility pant: Meet the hardworking women’s pant — it’s got pockets, it’s got attitude, it’s gonna be comfortable to wear out! Style with a tank and lightweight jacket or go casual with a tee, this is the wear anywhere pant of the season!

If you put yourself out there, there are a lot of options for pants this Spring that aren’t denim jeans, and so many of them are on trend right now! I hope this posts encourages you to branch out and try a new pant style that matches your own personal style. One that’s comfortable to you like a second skin and one you’ll keep reaching in your drawers for all season long!
