|Life's too short to wear boring pants|
Boring, they ain't. These are the tailored track pants by Hot Patterns, described as "a fabulous hybrid of slouchy, comfy trackpants and slick tailored trouser." They're exactly as described: a weird, wonderful mashup of sweats (elastic waist) and dress pants (cuffed legs).
I can't remember where I first came across this pattern, but it had been hanging about in my stash for far too long without seeing any action. In my head, I pictured something like this: a cool, kinda slouchy pair of secret pyjamas I could wear either for work/church or to the park with my kids.

Looking at these pictures, I definitely prefer the formal look. When paired with a blazer and heels, these pants read as fun and sharp as opposed to schlumpy. I'm not quite sure I can pull off the un-boring pants in a more casual setting...though they're so comfy that I'll probably wear them around and about nonetheless.
So, what do you think, readers? Totally nuts? Or just crazy enough to work?
