You Said: No to Military Pants

January 12th, 2009


ae-military-pant_011109We asked: Would you wear Military Pants?

You said:  No to Military Pants, with a 65% to 35% vote.

Style tip? While we don’t advocate camouflage pants as a part of your core wardrobe, we do recommend taking a cue from military men and keeping a pair of rugged casual pants on hand.  Not only are they appropriate for many daytime occasions, but they’re also handy for balancing out an overly feminine top. Pair your military pants with oversized sweaters for a chic outfit for running errands, with a ruffly top for lunch with the girls, and a blousy knit for a day of sightseeing on vacation.  

Next question: Shrunken blazers have been popular for the last few years, but what do you think about the opposite–the long, hip length blazer jacket?  Tell us, would you wear the Hip Length Blazer?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

    I think Military Pants are fine for casual wear

    these seem so passé. I don’t think that they are back in yet

    Sorry, military pants are not hot if you’re over 30-35. You’ll look like you’re trying to look like your daughter!

    I like the style of these pants because they look comfy but I can never find any that look good on my petite frame in stores. They are usually too baggy or too long. They certainly don’t have to be in for people to like them. It is better to have your own style anyway.

    My problem with military pants is I am never happy with the fit. They tend to be too baggy in the bum, and make me look more bottom-heavy than I am. Definitely comfy, but not very flattering.

    They look comfy but I don’t think I’d wear them. Just not my style.

    i found a pair that hugs my bottom quite finely, but loose and fancy free in the leg. they are awesome!

    Perfect! May we ask the brand of the pants you found?
