The actress and entrepreneur, 50, traveled to the Windy City for a quick 24-hour trip, where she spoke at the S2G Summit about her brand, Once Upon a Farm. She also made time to cartwheel over the Skydeck at Willis Tower, visit the iconic Cloud Gate sculpture (a.k.a. "The Bean") at Millennium Park, and attend a Chicago Cubs game at Wrigley Field.

For her day of tourist-y events, Garner wore a navy T-shirt with a pair of khaki pants and her trusty Veja sneakers. We absolutely adore her choice of pants because their khaki color is giving us coastal grandma vibes, reminding us of a pair Anne Hathaway recently wore. But they're also a fun take on another breezy summer trend.

Her khakis have an extra-wide hemline, which offers a less restrictive fit that doesn't cling to the legs, allowing for ample airflow and ultimate comfort — a necessity for Garner's day packed with outdoor activities. The cut also elongates the legs, making for a more flattering silhouette. 

Chrissy Teigen, Kate Middleton, Vanessa Hudgens, and Meghan Markle are just a few other notable celebrities who have been opting for the billowy bottoms recently. TL;DR: Wide-leg pants are ideal for summer, so if you don't already own a pair, this is your sign to buy one. 

We don't know exactly who makes Garner's flared khakis, but luckily, there are plenty of similar options available, like this under-$100 pair from Good American. There are also these Spanx pants that look nearly identical to hers that are $38 off and these palazzo-style pants for less than $40 from Amazon. 

Summer is officially here, which means you need to add a pair of breezy, wide-leg pants to your rotation ASAP. Keep scrolling to shop styles inspired by Garner's latest khaki pants outfit!
