this is pretty much all i want to wear, all summer long. well, that and a nice silky dress here and there. the recent arrival of humidity here reminds me that on certain oppressively hot days, the airy elastic-waisted summer pant is a godsend. yes, there is a chic way to do an elastic waist!
exhibit A: these a.p.c. jeans-ish summer pants

there's something very chambray-ish about these, which i love. the classic APC clean lines and straight cut means it's got a refined twist to the relaxed design. if i lived in northern California, i could do jeans in the summer. however, Shanghai is way too humid for anything resembling structured pants this time of year.
what do you think of summer pants? and elastic waists? :)
