If you don’t own a pair of parachute pants yet, then allow us to make a case for why you should add a few pairs to your wardrobe. The loose-fitting bottoms are a lightweight alternative to sweatpants, so you know that they’re extra comfy. And on top of that, you can wear them with anything in your closet. You can dress them up with a crisp button-down blouse or blazer. Or resolve to a more casual look by wearing the cargo-style pants with a sporty crop top or t-shirt.
