Sandra, do these pants make my butt look big?

Sandra, do these pants make my butt look big?

 

First off, as much as you would like to, you can’t wear jeans every day.  Especially jean shorts.

Now that the awkwardess is out of the way, may we suggest a smooth alternative – khakis.  Not quite dress pants and not quite jeans, khakis can be your go-to attire when you want to wear something so people take you seriously (but not too seriously).

Pair them with a button up and you are ready to go to a nice dinner in a 3-star restaurant (no, not a 4 or 5-star).  Pair them with a navy blazer and john varvatos converse all-stars and you are ready to hit the boat club with your wanna-be friends from college.  Pair them with a black v-neck and some havaiana flip flops and you are ready to be oh-so-fresh at that trendy L.A. rooftop bar by the beach.

Ready to fight the mad bomber that has been blowing up busses?  Rock out with a white t-shirt and a bullet proof vest (see: Keanu).

I can totally run in these pants.
