WIW: track pants, finally!

I've been searching for the perfect track pants / joggers / harem pants. At some point I realized that with all the variables (silk, cotton, wool; gathered cuff or not; drop crotch or not; etc) there were 96 possible combinations, which overwhelmed my OCD perfectionism.

Luckily, after a few misses, I found the pants of my dreams. They're a thick jacquard weave cotton. Somehow I talked myself into spending much more than I meant to on them, but I do really like them.

Now I just need better styling ideas - I'm wearing them today with my most basic tshirt. I think I could use a few more mostly-white tops with some sort of pattern or graphic. They'd also work well with any of my black sleeveless silk shirts. I want to avoid looking like I'm going to work in sweatpants.

And shoes - they work with these flats, and perhaps with my mephisto sandals. I'm going to wear them tonight with Converse but that's a bit too sporty for my ideal look. Oh, and they'd work with my heels. Lots of ideas to try.

    You look pretty happy in these! I like them with the pointy shoes. The mostly white tops with patterns or graphics sound like a good idea.

    Sharp! Glad you finally found what you were looking for. You'll get lots of wear from them.

    They look great on you! I have no styling suggestions, but I'm sure whatever you put together will look stunning. :D

    I really like the styling that you have done.  I just returned a pair of black silky (polyester) track pants to The Rack today because I wasn't having any luck styling them and wasn't sure that I wanted my style to go that direction anyway.  But I think that you were wise in getting good quality.  They look great on you.    Seeing your styling, I'm beginning to regret the return, but also think a need a fabric that will feel cool in our very hot summers.

    So pleased to hear you found your ideal pants!
    Definitely pumps! But I pair pumps with everything...... (Red cheeks)....
    I also see these with cowl neck tops, loose graphic tees and silk sweat shirts.
    Looking forward to seeing how you style these!
