We have three problems with slouchy pants. 1) Some of them (the printed ones, mostly) resemble pyjamas. 2) You have to be careful in picking the pants with just the right amount of bagginess or you will look like you’re still living in the 90s. 3) The wrong length can make your legs look stunted. We reckon these are the main reasons why many of us stick to skinny jeans, no matter how constricting they can be at times.
Consider yourself lucky if you have found the perfect pair of slouchy pants that do not look like something your grandma would wear. But if you ever find yourself challenged by its lack of styling options, you might want to try Jennifer Lopez’ recent slouchy pants look.

The 45-year-old donned a pair of Isabel Marant Den Laced Ankle Slouchy Trousers in Prussian – a statement piece boasting of laced sides and rolled up hem.
Sometimes, slouchy trousers have a tendency to make an outfit look frumpy. Jennifer solved that by wearing a basic tank top, tucked in at the waist, and topped it with a faded denim jacket.
The singer’s other trick to making her outfit look chic is by wearing a pair of strappy L.A.M.B Falyn Sandals and a fringed leather bag. She capped off the edgy look with her Gucci Gg2245 Techno Color Ultra Light Aviator Sunglasses, her Hermes Collier De Chien Cuff Bracelet and simple jewelry.
