You know when you try on a fresh pair of tapered cropped pants and they’re totally smooth and perfect with that amazing crisp crease down the center of each leg that instantly makes you five inches taller and five pounds thinner? And then you obviously buy them because you just got way taller and way thinner and Anna Wintour is probably going to call any second to ask you to be on the cover of Vogue and you’re going to need pants to wear when you meet her for lunch to talk about the “direction” of your cover shoot?
Then, you know when you wear them for the first time and after doing wild, exotic things like breathing, walking and sitting, the magnificent crease disappears and there’s nothing left but wrinkles and despair?
Been there, wrinkled that.
Well, our plight is officially over. I have uncovered the holy grail of tapered cropped trousers, made by my sartorial spirit animals over at Everlane. They’re 100% wool but have some sort of black magic weave that makes them intensely wrinkle resistant and suspiciously soft and smooth. Plus, they have a tacked front crease down the full length of each leg, which means that long lean line ain’t goin’ nowhere.
Breathe away, my friends. Heck, you can even go crazy and walk or sit in these. Madness!
