The Happy Pant Is Back—And Better Than Ever

  • 43

Pants haven’t exactly been the talk of the town since Zoom meetings became the new norm. But as we remain hopeful and begin to think about our reemergence and life after quarantine, trousers are gradually rising as power players, especially smile-inducing bold, printed pants.

Chioma Nnadi, Vogue.com’s editor, recently revealed her current love and need for festive slacks in The Get’s inaugural Instagram post. She says, “I want to wear clothes that make me feel happy.” Her chic formula for a joyous outfit includes cheerful knits, like Wales Bonner’s Saint Ann ribbed top and, of course, floral and stripe-laden pants by Marni. “These are my happy pants,” Nnadi adds.

A little pick-me-up is always a great idea. Below, take a closer look at Nnadi’s happy pants and find 10 more must-haves on our shopping list. Oh, and don’t worry if busy patterns of printed pants are a bit too much of a statement for you. Here, you’ll also find solid-color styles in comfortable, easy-going silhouettes that are just as delightful.
