5 Days, 5 Ways: Tech Pants

easy, breathable, technical summer pants

By Gabi Meyers | Last Updated: Jun 4 2017

Nothing makes me sweat more – in like a gross, sweaty way – than seeing a guy in a full suit on a hot day. As women, we’re lucky enough to have breezy sundresses to get us through every occasion between April and October. You guys have shorts, but I’m sure most of you aren’t allowed to rock those breezy knees at the office.

Enter the tech pants. Designed to blend in with the rest of your life, these pants are cut like your typical pants, but made of lightweight, stretchy twill that keeps you cool and dry. Comfortable enough to work out in, but polished enough to wear on your next night out.
