To say break-ups are tough is an enormous understatement. Not only are you abruptly forced to reevaluate your life’s direction as a ‘single person,’ but you have to rebuild your self-esteem and oftentimes, that comes in the form of a wardrobe update.

In a word (or two): boho chic.

These are the trousers you shimmy into after a long day of sunning in Bali before you hop on your moped and head to a dinner of fresh summer rolls. They’re the pants you bought your fashion-challenged Dad for his birthday after he requested “something light for summer.” They scream, I’m on the other side of a mid-life crisis and it’s all blue skies and green meadows from here on out. They’re what you don on your solo motorbike safari across North Africa.
If you’re looking for own pair, here are a few of our favorites, below, and may we keep Bradley Cooper in our prayers.
