High summer is probably not the time you think most of waking up, stretching those lanky limbs, and slipping into a pair of slacks. Much to many of my friends’ chagrin, my main motive when choosing my daily attire is to cover as little as possible with the thinnest layer of fabric conceivable all without contracting a ticket for public indecency. The caveat in all of this is my phobia of making bodily contact with many of the publicly shared spaces, ie., rash inducing velour seats of the Jitney descent or the unidentifiable, indestructible material of taxi cab cushions. Therefore, in the fear of revisiting a middle school incident of ring worm, there are times when covering up my gams is an absolute must. Fortunately, this summer, there are plenty of pants that don’t fall under the suffocating category of denim. Breezy wide leg pants in plenty of patterns are perfect for pairing with croptops and keeping the Center of Disease Control slightly less busy. And really, what’s the purpose of a pants of dance of if you’ve got no pants to lose?
