Tuxedo Pants Offer Relief From Restrictive Skinny Jeans (PHOTOS)

As much as we may hate to admit it, pants season is upon us. As we pull our skinny jeans on (while wishing they were sweatpants) it might be time to consider another option: tuxedo pants. The bottoms are just as comfortable as trousers, but with one major bonus: the dark panels on the side have a slimming effect. Pair them with a silk blouse for a polished look for day, or with a cropped top and a blazer for evening if you're brave. What's not to love?

Here, ten pairs of tuxedo pants for under $100, no cummerbund necessary.
