Made from a blend of cotton, polyester and spandex, the bottoms are so soft and stretchy that one customer said it feels like she is “wearing pajamas.” Along with a figure-flattering mid-rise silhouette, the straight-leg bottoms also feature faux front pockets, two back patch pockets and a smoothing waistband.
Along with a wide elastic waistband that doesn’t slip or slide down as you move, these cute skinny-leg jeggings will look good with everything from a casual sweater to a flowy blouse. They have side and back pockets to hold all your essentials and they come in six versatile washes. “These are my favorite pants. I have four colors and they all look and feel great! I really like the high waist and they have just enough stretch, so they fit snug while still being super comfortable,” raved one shopper.
These flattering bottoms have a soft and stretchy material, a built-in smoothing panel across the hips, a faux fly, and two faux front pockets. Unlike many other pull-on jeans, they have real back pockets and a functional coin pocket so no one would ever know they’re jeggings.
We love this pair because the black color is super flattering and slimming and the decoy belt loops make them look like regular jeans. They also feature five pockets, a faux fly and a hidden tummy panel that smooths your midsection without feeling uncomfortable. “These are my go-to jeans when I want to appear like a put effort into getting ready yet still want to feel cozy like I'm in leggings or sweatpants,” raved one shopper.
Thousands of shoppers gave this pair of elastic waist jeans their seal of approval because of how soft and comfortable they are. The cozy bottoms sit naturally at the waist and have two handy side pockets. Even better, they come in a variety of colors and petite, regular, tall and plus sizes! “I love these slacks,” said one owner. “The elasticized waist is very comfortable and allows for freedom of movement. The slacks fit perfectly and have both a casual feel and a tailored look.”
How cute are these tapered jeans? While they have a zipper and button fly closure like normal jeans, they still have a stretchy elastic waistband that makes them super comfortable and easy to move around in. Even better, they are size-inclusive, ranging in size from 00 to 30! “I like the elastic waistband and the stylish buttons. These pants remind me a little bit of a paper bag pant style. The pockets are great too! Really love the two back pockets that are big enough for a cell phone,” said one reviewer.
Part of Target’s Adaptive line, these pants are made in collaboration with guests of all abilities. They’re made from a power stretch fabric that moves with you without restrictions, these bootcut jeans are designed with flat seams that won’t dig in or cause chafing. The smooth, wide waistband keeps them in place and they even have back belt loops for a comfy fit and extra support if needed. The pants come in short, regular, tall and plus sizes and come in three versatile washes.
Am I too old to wear fashion’s biggest trends? At 53, I think I’m too old not to. We’re forever hearing that middle-aged women become “invisible”, that society would like us to slip into a hessian sack and please sit at home and watch telly, while politely awaiting death. But as actress Michelle Yeoh said at the Oscars, “Ladies, never let anyone tell you you are past your prime.” It’s why I think now is the time to lean harder on fashion. In fact, I genuinely credit my interest in trends, and my
