You’ve seen me post about these versatile pants several times before, but after owning them for six months, I honestly believe they deserve their own post. Over the past year, I have begun to simplify my life, and that also includes my wardrobe. If you’ve been to my apartment, you know what I’m talking about: my 15-foot long closet is completely stocked full of clothing, accessories, and bags. In an effort to pare down the excess and focus on the necessities, I have started to strategize what comes into my closet more closely, and the key element? Versatility.
Part of the spirit of my blog is finding transitional pieces that can work twice as hard when it comes to styling, so when Carbon38 started to create their own line of pieces that double as workout attire and street attire, I was pumped! I finally took the plunge when the first designer collaboration came out, the Jonathan Simkhai x Carbon38 capsule. One of the staple pieces were the Tommaso Pants, and they were my impulse buy. From the day they arrived until now, I can confidently say they are some of my most worn bottoms, whether it be post workout or in the office! Ask any of my co-workers, and they’ll say they would never guess they were active wear. Pretty versatile, right?
Since summer is officially in full swing, I have been pairing these pants with my favorite dressy sandals of the season, the Rockstud Flip Flops. If you’re looking for a splurge pair of statement sandals, these are it! I bought them for my trip to Miami last year, and have never really taken them off. Talk about versatile! Try a pair of your own, or swap them out for a killer pair of platforms if you’re feeling a more bold look.
These pants have made dressing for work much more comfortable and have cut down on my dry cleaning bill as a result, which is amazing. It’s quite literally wash-and-wear, just like your leggings! While they have a higher price tag than most of my technical clothing, it’s a worthy investment being able to have its incredible versatility: it keeps my closet from getting cluttered by virtually replacing a pair of jeans, sweats, and slacks. Wish you could pack your regular work pants in your gym bag without ever getting wrinkled? You can with these. Sound a little more cost effective now? Check them out while you can, as they’re selling out quick! I’m wearing a size S for reference.
Also- big heads up: Carbon38 will be releasing a new capsule full of summer resort wear that’s perfect for a night out or the office. Stay tuned for next week’s posts, I can’t wait to share it with you!
