Every year we see a new version of the pant. Some stay in style for years on end, others exit as quickly as they entered. Luckily, this season designers introduce styles that are sure to maintain longevity. Pleated, cropped wool, silky, slinky, and tight style options vary, along with exotic prints and materials. Zipper details embellish a rocker look, while leather has made a huge comeback for even the more conservative clientele.
Menswear is seen as a huge inspiration for daytime trousers, and the harem pant is slowly fading out.
Stella McCartney pairs a dark grey, wool trouser with a simple white blouse for an updated work look.
Roberto Cavalli keeps that rock-n-roll edge with laced up, skin-tight denim pants coveted by MTV hotties.
Perfectly complimentary to the tuxedo jacket, Balmain crops a skin-tight pant with a beaded fabric for a sophisticated rocker chic look.
A subtle shine, charcoal grey, cropped trouser is ultra clean and modern, defining an accurate representation of Calvin Klein designs.
Skinny, long, brown leather versions balance out an oversized fur at Fendi.
Picking up on the trend of interesting materials, Etro dives in with a python, cropped, trouser pant paired with matching blazer.
Try a skinny pant in an exotic print for a night out and a pleated, ankle length trouser in a classic wool for daytime. Have fun with prints, colors, fabrications and lengths, but when in doubt, keep it simple.
