My 3 Favorite Pants Right Now: Athleta, Everlane, & Madewell


There are about three pairs of pants and jeans I’m really living in right now.

My Athleta Cosmic Pants, Everlane Utility Barrel Jeans + Madewell Slim Boyjeans are definitely my top go-tos for easy styling and comfortable options as we transition into warmer weather (we’re not quite there yet in Portland!)

All three pairs of pants are versatile and fun to style up multiple ways, and I love that they each give a totally different vibe…sporty (that can still go to the office), classic ivory but in a modern cut, and lastly, a pair of super easy-to-wear slim straight leg jeans with stretch (and distressing, like I always love).

The 3 Pairs Of Game-Changing Pants I’m Living In

You can see each of these pants styled up a couple of ways in my video below:

Athleta Cosmic Pants: These Athleta Cosmic Pants have been my go-to black pants for years, especially during warmer months. They’re soft but made of a quick-drying tech fabric (poly/spandex blend + abrasion-proof) and so flattering and comfy. I love that they can be dressed up for the office or dressed down for everyday! TTS and offered in a wide range of sizes and lengths.

Everlane Utility Barrel Jeans: The Everlane Utility Barrel Jeans are the newest pair of pants I’m loving. They are soft and comfy but still structured and feature a flattering modern shape. I sized up in these, and they’re comfy in the waist and flattering everywhere else. I tend to be straighter through the midsection, so this worked beautifully. Love how they look super-cute with both heeled and flat sandals.

Madewell Slim Boyjean: These Boyjeans have been my favorite non high-rise jeans for years. I have multiple pairs of these and they’re what I grab for my easy jeans…when I don’t want a waistband digging in or to worry about what specific shoe goes with them. Highly recommend! True to size.

Would love for you to say hi over on my Instagram @laurajansenstyle where there are mostly odes to snacks, OOTDs, travel and everyday mom-life-stuff in Portland, Oregon. xoxo
