Who doesn’t love a night at the cinema? Whether you’re going straight to the movies or grabbing dinner beforehand, you’ll be sitting for most of the night.

Go for a pair with stretch for ease of movement. Add a flowing blouse and wedged heels for a cute look, or keep it casual with sneakers and a tee. Guys can rock jeans, too, with a sweater, t-shirt, or button-down. Other casual pants, like chinos and cargos, will work too. Wear them with sneakers or loafers to bring the look together.
