If the thought of gauchos makes you cringe, you are in for a surprise.
These flowing, full-leg capri pants were once the domain of grannies, but now they are sleek, sophisticated and even sexy.
For a comfortable daytime look, pair gauchos with a fitted button-down shirt or a T-shirt and cardigan. Complete the outfit with wedges or tall boots.
To transition to evening, wear the same gauchos with a sparkly top, eye-catching earrings and a great pair of heels.
Versatility is the best quality of gaucho pants, so purchase a pair in a dark color and lightweight material, and they will be sure to take you everywhere.
