Casual can be stylish—instead of sweats, slip on easy silk pants
Craving something casual but not shapeless? Here's a surprise: Designers have modified the harem pant (She Said by JCPenney, $36), replacing droopy with leg-flattering draping. (No worries about looking too '80s—this cut is very wearable.) "I'd adopt these for everyday," says author Julie Muszynski, 41. "I'll grab what's comfortable—as long as I can go to the yoga studio in it." Combined with a smart acid-yellow sweater and heels, the new harems transform from relaxed to refined.
