As the Nordstrom anniversary sale comes to its inevitable close (prices go up on August 5), we wanted to take this opportunity to call out a pair of pants that caught our eye and are still available in all sizes. The pants in question are these cropped, high-waisted trompe l’oeil leggings (that are meant to look like jeans) from Spanx that recall styles you’d see at a Madewell or an Anthropologie, but are presumably slightly more flattering. Note: According to the reviews, which are very positive, they run a little bit on the small side, so go a size up.
