In this post, I am going to present to you some really affordable yet good quality high waisted wide leg pants. In fact, they come in a pack of 4 for only $45. These pants are by someone name Isaac Liev. I know this is not some huge designer but based on the items that I bought from this brand so far I can say that I am in love.
The items are super affordable, good quality, and versatile. In fact, I did a review on the Isaac Liev skirts (that you can click here and read) that I felt should be a part of your capsule wardrobe. I like these pants for some of the same reasons I loved those skirts. I feel that if you want to create a timeless capsule wardrobe then you should add these pants to them as well.
I chose these pants after I bought the skirts. I had such great luck with the skirts that I thought I would have great luck with the pants too and I was right. These pants come in a package of 4 for $45 and that is about $11 per pants. So you cannot beat that.
If you are a reader of my blog then you know that I am always on the hunt for a bargain. From thrift store shopping to shopping at Payless I make it my mission to look good on a budget. Which is why these pants were a perfect fit. These were cheap and I looked nice in them. It was pretty much a win-win.
You can view the other colors that these pants come in but I decided to go with the blue, red, pink, and the black pack because it just goes more with my personal style and I felt that these colors were more of “staple colors.” Meaning that I could find more tops to go with these pants colors than the other pack that was sold.
Another main reason that I went for these pants is that I am going through this simplicity phase. I want to simplify my fashion and get more clothing items that can be used for more than one purpose. These pants are solid colors that are super versatile. All you have to do is just change up the shirt that you wear with these pants and get an entirely different look.
My first impression of the pants was a positive one. Considering the price I was overly impressed by the quality. I have worn these pants to work, washed them, and they are still standing. There are affordable but they are not just going to fall apart either.
The pants are made from 95% Rayon and 5% Spandex. The feel of the pants is also very soft and the look of them is quite flowy. When I tried on the pants what I liked about them is that they are high waisted and due to this it can make your tummy area look a lot smaller and hide some imperfections around your hips. But the material is also kind of thin. There were a few times that I tucked in my shirt and you could see lumps and bumps about my midsection due to the tucked shirt. So that was a problem. Also, because they are so thin if you choose to wear them in winter then you may want to wear some stockings or tights under the pants (click here to see the tights that I wore). And last, be wary of your panty line. The thinness of the material can show through with the wrong underwear. The last thing you want is for people to be looking at your animal print underwear through these thin pants.
These pants are pretty versatile. They can be used for workout pants, yoga pants, and as you can see work pants. I got tons of compliments on my outfits and no one thought that they were too casual. Since they are stretch pants they are just really comfortable to wear throughout the day.
I only wore these to work but I am sure that if you styled them right you can dress them up and wear them on dinner, a date, or somewhere that is dressier. It is all in the shoes, the shirt, and how you can accessorize with them. But to me, that is the plus of these pants. These are great for the minimalist who want pants and want to get multiple uses out of them.
I would actually give these a 10 out of 10. They are not perfect but there are several things that come into play when I made my rating decision and they are as follows:
- Bang for your buck
- They are versatile an can be dressed up or dressed down.
- The quality of the pants (given the price)
- The Fit
- How fashionable they are
For all of these reasons, these pants get a 10 in my book. Of course, they are not some fancy name brand clothing items and are probably not the best quality if you were to buy Coach or something. But I have worn my pants several times and I have not had an issue. The directions on the pants do say hand washed. I put mine in the washing machine and once again I have not had an issue. These pants range from small to like 3x and I feel like no matter what your body type is you can make these pants look good. Which is why I feel they are perfect for even a capsule wardrobe. They are basic in color and can be mixed and match with varies shirts and tops and each will give your outfit a different look.
Other clothing items that I used to spice up these pants are:
- Red boots from Payless (click to buy here).
- Long Ponytail (click here to see the full tutorial)
- Fishnet tights (click here to buy)
- Emmalise Long Sleeves Tee Top (another capsule wardrobe essential ~ click here to buy)
