It looks like some of the most criticized trends of fall—jeggings and harem pants—are sticking around this spring for another go. Browsing through new merchandise on some of our favorite retailers, we noticed that these styles were widely available, and, in some cases, more prevalent than before. As for harem pants, we assume that Alexander Wang‘s football collection had something to do with the drop-crotch staying in style, and becoming transposed into sweatpants. Over at Shopbop, you’ll find many of these offerings, which appear to be marketed less as a harem cut, and more as an athletic-chic style. Oak‘s merchandise, however, glorifies the baggy pant as a high-fashion item. Perhaps the most surprising is the availability of jeggings—denim leggings—at Saks. We counted over 20 pairs, and from some surprising makers. While there were styles from trend-happy labels we’d expect like C&C, Juicy Couture, and Joe’s Jeans, we also came across offerings from some more sophisticated brands like Rag & Bone and Alice and Olivia. We have to admit, when these stretchy pants haven’t gone acid-wash crazy, and just have a nice dark color and simple lines … they’re not half bad. Dare we say that we might actually consider getting in on the jeggings trend if the wares were more classy?
What do you think of the return of these trends this spring? Keep reading »
The other day I came across a newspaper article about how so-called “high fashion,” referring to the more avant-garde, conceptual side of styles like shoulder pads and Frankenstein-esque chunky platforms, may be a potent force when it comes to creative self-expression, but won’t earn you any points in the sack. And it’s true, many a manfolk, especially of the hetero variety, tend to eye fashion warily. In fact, when it comes to the couture realm, most of the time the only thing they could get behind (er, literally) is the hot models part of the whole trip. Brilliant fuchsia multi-tiered ruffled tunics? Not so much. Keep reading »

When the harem pant trend came along this spring, many were reluctant to jump on the baggy-bottomed train. And with good reason—why go all gypsy-ass when you know people are going to stare at you, or think you’re smuggling produce or drugs in your crotch region?

Maybe there are a few gentleman out there sporting unisex trends like Ugg boots and Longchamps bags but a certain foreign import might be making the next big splash in unisex fashion: Drop-crotch pants. Shops like Zara, H&M and Topshop have already jumped on the drop-crotch pant bandwagon after the trend hit the streets of Europe.
I found that some of my craftier, fashion pioneer friends were making their pants from MC Hammer Pants Simplicity patterns or getting them custom made. Unlike the Hammer pants, the sides on these genie-like thingies don’t billow out but cling instead and taper at the ankles. Despite its clear flaws, it does have benefits like elongating your torso and letting ones package breathe. The jury is still out on whether these will be hipster cool or just plain weird. I don’t know girls, is it time to let your man drop-crotch it like its hot? [$44 Topshop] Keep reading »
