The Push on Pants

 

By Chandia Brennen, Women's Editor

Truth is most women love embracing the femininity that a dress provides but there is no denying the powerful feeling that a pantsuit evokes. Whether long and slender or chic and wide, pants are dominating women’s fashion for the fall season. We’ve put together the most desirable options that will accentuate your elongated stride.

Harem Pants

We must admit that we were initially a bit skeptical of the emerging trend that appeared to pay homage to MC Hammer and pajamas, yet dare we say that after seeing harems appear on the runway of Balmain, Alexander McQueen and Chloe…we’re obsessed! Tip: Avoid longer blouses or jackets that distract from the unique silhouette. 

Cropped pants

Sleek and sexy, cropped pants are an elegant option for any occasion. This trend was spotted on the streets of Paris during fashion week in versatile options that were tres tres chic! Pair cropped pants with boots or a sexy stiletto for the fall. 

Wide leg  pants

The good news is that the wide legged trend is transitioning from summer to fall this season. Despite the fact that we’ve seen wide leg pants come and go over the past decade, designers are continuing to revamp the style in new fabrics and prints. Whether structured and high-waist or slouchy and stylish, wide leg pants are showing that they can withstand the test of time. 

 

Printed Pants 

I know what you’re thinking…prints for fall? Yes! Tuck away your dreary black and gray and make a real statement this season in fiber optic print pants. Tip: Opt for jewel tones like emerald, mykonos blue and acai. 

Leather leggings and pants

What would fall be without an edgy pair of leather pants or leggings to spice up your ensemble. In a variety of textures and styles, leather is an essential staple for any “It Girl” that isn’t afraid to be noticed. 

Well ladies, we’ve determined who wears the pants this season! Select the style that best accentuates your frame, for a fierce fall.
