Baggy Business Fashion
The Spring 2011 Zara lookbook features almost all solid colors with the exception of a pair of striking patterned pants with a bow-tie belt. A lot of the fits are baggy and loose -- they look pretty darn comfy.
Implications - Baggy fashions are gaining consumer appeal as they are a reflection of the masculinization of femininity. Comfort is the driving force behind this role reversion; while corsets and other highly uncomfortable fashions suited women in the past, contemporary women are looking to dress in looser fitting, masculinized fashions that maintain style and comfort.
