Sarah Jessica Parker walked the purple carpet at the New York Hocus Pocus 2 premiere last week looking a bit more like Carrie Bradshaw than Sarah Sanderson.
Fresh off the Armani Privé Haute Couture show, Parker was dressed in a shiny floral-print jacket with beaded trim and hot pink Fawn pumps from her own SJP Collection. But the most bewitching part of the outfit was a pair of ballerina-pink trousers, also from the Armani Spring 2022 collection, that caught the cameras' flashes with their silky sheen.
The nostalgic sequel to Hocus Pocus celebrates witches, who have often been associated with ominous garb throughout history. But the real Salem witches (the last of whom was only pardoned this year, 329 years after her execution) weren't costumed characters at all. They were progressive women who scared the establishment with their independent thought. SJP's outfit departure from something more on theme — like her co-stars Bette Midler and Kathy Njamy wore — creates an interesting parallel that maybe modern "witches" are more like Carrie: forward in thinking and in this case, fashion.
Historic parallels aside, flowy but sophisticated trousers like these are ideal not just for movie premieres, but also for everyday wear. The versatile silhouette works for numerous occasions, from office attire to errands, and they're comfortable to boot. And wWhile the Armani pair isn't available for purchase yet (hot off the stage and all!), we've found some similar styles that go for much less than the designer label's average price tag.

Working a little magic, we found the silky sister of SJP's pants, and it's from Boohoo, who recently partnered with Kourtney Kardashian on an edgy collection of lace, leather, and lots of black. The satin pants have a similar sheen and cut to SJP's Armani pair, as well as the versatility to be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.
The perfect length to show off a colorful shoe, these capri trousers are tailored but comfortable. Plus they're 50 percent off!

These chic joggers from Nordstrom are also a dead ringer for Parker's premiere pants, and while somewhat pricey, they're still way less than what you'd pay for Armani. The pants mirror the other silhouette with a faint ruching effect that adds dimension and a tailored cuff at the shin, and they boast a stretchy waistband and side pockets. You could wear these with sneakers for a shopping excursion or put on a blazer and heels for a more elevated feel.

If you want something with business-casual flair, these paper bag waist pants from Grace Karin are equally fun and sophisticated in a warm salmon pink. With more than 18,600 ratings on Amazon, these pants are praised by customers for being "so stretchy and comfortable." The cinched waist and bow accent also adds a whimsical element to these sassy capris. Plus, pockets.
