Summer fashion : Gauchos pants

Gauchos pants are quickly becoming my go-to summer uniform; they’re all I’ve been wearing strolling around the city, and even packed some that I wore on repeat during our recent family trip to Hawaii. Because I’m not sure this trend is here to last – and didn’t want to spend $200+ dollars (whaaat???) on a summer fashion fling, I scouted the inter-webs to find quality yet affordable ones, and I’m officially hooked with Gauchos pants : they add a 70s-vibe feminine silhouette and elongate the legs, have enough stretch… that you don’t even have to unbutton your pants after a good meal, THAT kind of comfort… Wink.

Here are my two favorite Gauchos pants finds this summer, and how I style them:


Summer Fashion : Gauchos | French By Design

White gauchos from Lands’ End

Striped tank top from Petit Bateau Women

Superstar Sneakers from Golden Goose

Market crossbody bag from Morocco

Lipstick from Christian Dior (shade:Rouge Dior 999)

Nail polish from Opi (Shade : Red Hot Rio)


The reviews were so good, I decided to give these a try, and I was not disappointed! Hello stretch, these guys have just enough hidden spandex to feel like you’re wearing lounge pants, but suit you like a real fashionista. I cut mine a bit in length, because they were too long and I wanted my ankle to show slightly more, and since these come already fringed, I din’t have to worry about a seam after cutting them. I simply let the fringes do their thing. Easy-peasy.

Here, I styled them for a French chic yet laid-back look. Don’t forget red lips and nails for the extra French touch!

Gauchos from Seven7 Jeans

Iconic tank top from Petit Bateau Women

Denim slides from Castaner

Straw sun hat from Hat Attack

Market tote from Bonjour (past collection) 

Nail Polish from Essie (shade: Go Overboard)


These gauchos pants are priced around $69 dollars, but the brand often offers up to 30% discount codes. I ended up paying 40 dollars or so including shipping. These gauchos are so easy to style and they are pure comfort-perfection!

I paired them with a simple white tank top and some exotic and denim accessories for a fresh summer look. Also, teal blues are among my favorite nail polish pedicure colors, they make my toes look so eye candy and summer happy!


What do you think about gauchos pants? Yay, or nay? How would you style them?
