The New Trousers Trend I’m Giving Up My Jeans for this Fall

The New Trousers Trend I’m Giving Up My Jeans for this Fall

Let’s be honest, there are not a lot of things I’d really give up my jeans for. They’re quite frankly, the hardest working item in my closet and my sartorial rock. But the fall 2019 runways have seriously made me rethink my pant game. In a big way. From Chloe to Chanel and Zimmermann, one of the biggest trouser trends we saw on the fall 2019 runways were ultra-long, loose and relaxed trousers—but before you think sloppy and boho—think again. These sophisticated pants seemed like they were made for the modern working woman—high-waisted and slightly tailored for a comfortable, and sophisticated look. Some pants were paired with pretty blouses, others with oversize sweaters and many with matching blazers as part of a slouchy suit—however you choose to style them, it’s safe to say this new silhouette is the most refreshing, flattering and grown up look, we seriously can’t Read the rest

With the pants, Middleton wore a pretty eyelet top, classic brown belt, and the $65 sneakers European girls love—Superga Cotu. This is the perfect time of year … Read the rest

An Obituary for Cropped Pants—and the Intel on What's Replacing Them

An Obituary for Cropped Pants—and the Intel on What's Replacing Them

Sorry to sound dramatic. Actually, I’m not really sorry (I live for the drama), and I happen to take my job quite seriously, so when it comes to reporting on which trends are in and out, I’m not messing around. And lately it would be impossible not to notice that cropped pants (once a staple in closets everywhere) have suddenly vanished. I owned multiple pairs at one point, too, but I’ve found myself drawn more and more to longer hemlines, and the fashion world is in complete agreement.

There’s something undeniably relaxed and dare I say cool about the elongated, puddles-around-your-feet kind of look? Oversize tailoring was a trend we saw all over the spring runways, from Tibi to Dior, a surefire sign that the loose-pants trend is canceling the fitted, cropped pairs that preceded them. What’s more, the shoe trends of the moment (among them, strappy … Read the rest
