It's a draw

Easy drawstring gets chic

Summertime is all about ease. Even features once related to lounge wear (a la jogging pants) are cropping up in chic places and in looks appropriate for every day. Meet the new drawstring bottoms.

Brother's on the Boulevard does the drawstring pant in summer's best fabrication - linen - and in a variety of colors perfect for pops of bright prints on top. At Vanessa V. a bold coral little short is long enough for the grown ups but not too long (tough combo to find for those with long legs). Hemline gals style a navy blue draw string short with an off-the-shoulder top perfect for that easy boho vibe.
