Fashion is funny. Whenever I was asked, “what fashion trend from the past will you never rock again”, my go-to answer was gaucho pants. I had a purple pair in third grade that I wore the heck out of. They were stretchy, comfortable, but not at all stylish on me– a tall and gawky 9-year-old. They fell at an awkward length for my frame, so I vowed to stay away from cropped lengths that looked like they could be high-waters. Alas, the gaucho trend is back. This time, with a new name– culottes. I gotta admit, I love the way they look on the runway and street style blogs. The way they’re usually styled is understated, minimalistic. yet sophisticated and eye-grabbing– everything I look for in an outfit.
Bottom line? I think I’ll be appreciating this trend from afar. What do you guys think?
