Can we pull it off?

More Leg Room Maybe?

Whoah BABY! Look at the new pant coming off the runway! This is exactly what I thought when I first saw them. The drop- crotch pants are catching numerous eyes.

Their debut was made at 3.1 Phillip Lim, while soon coming in other forms at Nicole Farhi, Gucci, and YSL, where they rode high on the waist and dipped down below. They were first shown last fall with no particular reason. But now, we've been trying to get out of the overdone- the domination of dresses, leggings, and skinny jeans. Jodhpurs were first trying to make their way in, being led by Balenciaga, which led other designers to expand their ideas in accordance to shape. Both Marc Jacobs and Pilati tried pleats. I have a feeling they're trying to go for a more relaxed look.

Does this not remind you of something you'd see a guy wear? It definitely puts those thoughts into my head. It looks as if we're now combining femininity with masculinity. This is a very dramatic turn from the strikingly tight pant. You have to know how to wear this new pant though. Make sure you have on a sharp high heel, and when paired with a jacket, makes a very nice alternative to a suit. But then again, with the rate fashion is going now, what can you expect? The changes are eminent. We'll just have to go with the flow and keep up with fashion's brisk pace.

Wow! Drop Crotch pants -- that is sort of scary to me. It seems like everything has dropped! ;-)

BTW - I love your titles and graphics and hyperlinks.
