Are you bored of snug-fitting slim leg pants? The new trend in trousers is still tapered, but now it is also pleated. These roomy alternatives look best when cropped just above the ankles.
This trend has been popping up all over the Fall 2009 and Resort 2010 runways. Designers such as Burberry and 3.1 Phillip Lim showed tailored, menswear inspired peg-leg versions, while YSL, Givenchy and Lanvin chose to showcase the style as Middle Eastern-inspired drop-crotch harem pants.
Retailers have also been quick to pick up on the trend with companies such as French Connection, Urban Outfitters and H&M scrambling to stock their shelves with affordable priced options. Pair them with studded stiletto heels for a night out on the town.
