Forget what you think you know about stretch pants. They won’t all give you camel-toe, they don’t all have to cling to your body in a way that makes you look like a sausage, and they don’t all have to be super-basic.
In fact, if you’re looking for stretchy and roomy, you have 100 per cent more options than just a shapeless pair of grey, black or navy sweatpants. What we’re telling you is that this holiday season, you’re gonna eat. And you’re gonna bloat. And you’re going to love every second of it until you can no longer button that top button. But what if you just ate and bloated and never worried about your pants because they were so ideal and perfect for what you’re up to that they’re never a gut and button-busting burden?
It’s not a dream. Here are 10 different pairs of pants that could help you achieve your over-indulgent hopes and dreams this holiday season:
