I know what you're thinking: A noticeable amount of my recent editors' picks have been from Madewell. I can assure you the brand is not paying me — I am just really obsessed with everything it's selling this season. In fact, I had to walk out of the Fifth Avenue outpost a week or so ago in an attempt to exercise self-control and avoid causing some serious damage on my credit card.
One thing I did allow myself to buy, however, was this supremely soft and light pair of black trousers. I live in black denim year-round, and this is a great warm weather alternative. They drape elegantly enough that I can wear them to evening events, and their cropped length is ideal for pairing with sandals or sneakers.
Perhaps the best thing about the pants that I plan on living in from this day forward? They're currently on sale. You're welcome.
Delancey slouch trousers, $69.50, available at Madewell.
