Top, Pants, Shoes, Bag (here in black), Sunglasses (here with green lenses)

Today’s post is dedicated to my all-time favorite pant: the J.Crew Pixie pant. I’ve purchased over 10 pairs of these pants, and worn through each one. There is no other pant on the market that is comfortable, versatile, and makes me feel great.

The thing I love most about the Pixie pant is the way it hugs the body. The fabric is very thick, and the waist is high, making the legs and tummy feel sucked in and lean unlike thinner, less form-fitting pants.

Pixie’s are also 100% opaque unlike many other leggings. On busy days, i’ve been known to wear these pants to work.

Also, can we talk about these sunglasses. Amaze.

This post wouldn’t be complete without talking about the (albeit few) pitfalls of the Pixie pant:

1. They wear out. The zipper on these pants is in the back, and wears out over about 6 months of wear
2. They are dry-clean only. Not a deal breaker for me, but annoying for sure.
3. They aren’t cropped in length. I like all of my skinny pants to hit right above my ankle, and these are full length. I combat this issue by rolling the hems as I do with most of my bottoms, but it’s something that should be noted.
