What I Love About Old Navy High Waist Chino OGC Pants
When you need a denim alternative that’s nicer than sweatshirts but more comfortable than trousers, classic chinos are a great choice. Unlike the more standard, straight-leg versions, these OGC Chino Pants feature a slim fit over the hips and thighs and are delicately tapered with a rounded ankle. Soft washed cotton twill with only a little spandex, so they stay comfortable and stretchy, but the most special feature is the partially stretchy waistband. Seen from the front, these pants look good with zips, buttons, and waistbands, but at the back, the elasticated waistband provides plenty of stretch. I could even get away with not having to unzip or unbutton them to pull them out — a detail that somehow moved me. Since they are ankle-length, they are perfect to pair with sandals in warm weather or style boots at colder temperatures. They’re high-waisted, so they’re made for the French fanatic, but the elastic waistband makes them comfortable to wear at or just below your navel. I appreciate having an option.
