Time to put away your skinnies, ladies! This fall, trousers are bigger and better than ever. Seen over and over again on the runways, flared and wide-leg pants are making a comeback; which shouldn’t be too much of a surprise since it seems that just about every 70’s-related trend has resurfaced over the past couple of seasons. Balmain designer, Olivier Rousteing, pulled inspiration from the 70’s so the collection was bound to include the pants of the disco decade. Pleated palazzo pants were the order of the day and they were served in a bevy of eye-popping hues like orange and fuchsia. And let’s not forget texture, which was delivered thanks to flared lace trousers paired with an equally transparent top. Androgyny was a recurring theme at Michael Kors and Gucci. At both shows, models were adorned in wide-leg trousers paired with blazers, trench coats, capes, and, of course, Michael Kors’ signature fur. Peter Dundas, the designer behind Pucci, chose a predominantly black-and-white color scheme for the wide-legs in his collection, a tribute to his violinist mother who commonly wore the colors while performing. Although, it wasn’t strictly a black-and-white affair at Pucci. The collection included several pairs of boldly-colored, crushed-velvet trousers – a must-have for the cooler weather ahead.

Trying this trend should be on every fashionistas to-do list this fall. It’s super easy to pull off as the spectrum of silhouettes is broad enough to compliment an array of body shapes. If you’re looking for a snug fit, go with the flared option, and if you want a looser silhouette, the wide-legs are the way to go. When styling this trend, be sure to select a more tailored top to avoid looking frumpy and modernized accessories, so you don’t look like the long lost twin of Mary Tyler Moore.

Tom-Ford-1

Happy New York Fashion week fellow fashionistas! The spring/summer 2016 collection officially kicks off today, order
but we still have one question in mind: Where is Tom Ford? Though he regularly shows during London Fashion Week, Mr. Ford is not on the London calendar this season. He’s also not on the New York, Milan or Paris calendars. Last season, he tied himself to the Los Angeles pre-Oscars, and while that may be a possibility again (he is directing his second feature film, “Nocturnal Animals”), nothing is confirmed. Indeed, all his office would say in response to repeated enquiries was: 1) Mr. Ford is not showing in London this season, but that doesn’t mean he has given up on showing in the city, he will be back; 2) he’s not going to have a traditional show, but he’s going to do something; and 3) they’ll release details soon.

Mr. Ford did not respond to any emails.
