you could buy breeches in a non-beige color. That'd make them seem less "fancy and traditional" I have breeches that are dirt colored which i use for everyday riding, they don't look like much but they always look clean =P My friend has plaid ones, they don't look like breeches at all!

I wear johdpurs/breeches, mine are quite thick, so they cope well, and I wear long socks, so my legs dont get as cold :)

hope this helps

I ride in black breeches with black half-chaps and black paddock boots. This get-up goes fine with t-shirts, sweatshirts, you name it. It isn't very fancy at all...especially not once everything is covered with short chestnut-colored hairs! :)

The breeches I have are Tuffriders and they have a low rise. Very comfortable, very easy to clean, and so far, they are wearing like iron.

I've heard it's a nice one (although I never had a chance to try one - local stores don't carry Corbettes). I hope you'll enjoy it! :)

Thanks everyone, I'm starting feel like I know everything about casual riding clothes now! I didn't realize that there were so many things I could try. I rode in leggings yesterday and they were pretty slippery so I've ordered a pair of black breeches. I didn't even know that they came in black but I agree with you guys, they do look much more casual. I might just try my mom's yoga pants too if she will let me ;)

kitten_Val: Thank you, I am definitely enjoying it. I hope you found/find what you are looking for.
