One trend that has come into fashion that women who love comfort will appreciate is blanket trousers. The main feature that makes a pair of pants blanket trousers is that they have a very wide straight leg that does not vary in width from the waist to the hem. They are not bell bottoms and they are not tight at the thigh or calf. Many pairs of these blanket pants will stop right at the ankle rather than continue on to the floor or long enough to touch the shoes. This is not a prerequisite for a pair of trousers to be called blanket trousers, but it is a factor that shows up a lot.
Loose blanket trousers are the leg wear that you will love if you value comfort above all other factors when choosing what to wear. Since no part of the leg is tight, they are very comfortable. Sometimes, blanket trousers will have a drawstring or elastic waist making them even more cozy, but not always. This style is usually made out of a lightweight fabric that is flowy like gingham or chiffon. The variety of drawstring blanket trousers are usually worn on the weekend, at the beach, or in some other casual setting. They are best paired with loose hanging tops or a casual tank top.
Not all blanket trousers are that carefree, though. Some pairs have a higher waist and are more tailored. This style of blanket trousers will be made of more professional fabrics like wool or polyester. The legs will still be wide, but they will not be so breezy and full of movement. They will be more stiff and have a more professional look. This variety of loose blanket pants are appropriate for work. They can come in prints or solid colors. The high waist means that they look great with a simple fitted dress shirt tucked in to accentuate the lines of the pants.
One last variation on the blanket trouser are flannel or cotton pants that are most appropriate for sleepwear or bumming around the house. Not only does this style have all the same comforts of the casual blanket trousers discussed above, there is the added benefit of usually being made of a soft, warm fabric.
