This season I am most drawn to these shapes:
-The easy, long tunics with generous slits at the sides.
-The full, flowy pants with loose elastic at the ankle.
I dream of layering the tunic over leggings, sarouelles, cropped jeans or pants, or even over my jumpsuit. The side slits would allow for comfortable movement and sitting. Ever since I saw a sneak peek of this combination, I've felt that the tunic could serve the function of a dress in my wardrobe. It would be easy to dress up or down for various occasions.
The pants look amazingly comfortable + about as far away from the feel of constricting jeans as possible. :) I like that the ankle elastic is loose, because when pants have elastic at the ankle, they usually get knee bubbles with sitting. This elastic also lends itself to defining a whole new shape, which I get excited about. I feel like I could recreate this shape quite easily, provided that I could find the right fabric. I'm guessing that these pants would work as well with a fitted t-shirt or denim jacket as they would with an oversized pullover or cardigan.
