Gap Adds More Color & Washes — And Tacos — To Its Denim Collection

Gap has built its reputation around its classic denim jeans, but this fall, the retailer is shaking things up. The Gap 1969 collection will feature deep, saturated colors like the rust corduroy legging above. Gap has also developed unique washes. Its legging jean will be available in a gummy texture along with subtle camouflage and leopard prints. These definitely aren’t your regular blue jeans, but the corduroy leggings and legging jeans are just as affordable and comfortable. I lived in my Gap cords and black legging jeans last winter because they have just the right amount of stretch to be comfortable, but also hold their shapes.

Palazzo Pants Make A Return … Let’s Rejoice?

I remember 1993 like it was yesterday. CeCe Peniston was a “few-hit wonder,” and if you weren’t into grunge fashion, then you probably decked yourself out in the glamorous ’70s look that was in vogue at the time. Spurred along by pop singers like CeCe, palazzo pants had a major moment in ’93. They were a super roomy hybrid of bell bottoms and wide leg pants … and were extremely comfy. But I never expected this trend to get a redux because, well, maxi skirts are just as roomy and don’t remind folks of culottes. Keep reading »

Do Not Want: Thakoon Twisted Layered Leggings

Look, I know we’re always looking for new pantsventions (that’s pants inventions) to cover the lower halves of our bodies, but really, this is just not right. Thakoon is a bonafide genius when it comes to structured style, but we’ll definitely be skipping these “layered” leggings, which are just a $378 way to look like a total schlub. I guarantee, I can recreate the Thakoon look with a couple of off-the-rack items from my local Kmart, but no one would ever mistake it for high-fashion. But if you’ve got an extra $400 to spare, by all means, have at ‘em. [$378, Shopbop] Keep reading »

Hot Or Not: Wool “Jogging” Pants By Band Of Outsiders

Behold, wool “jogging” pants brought to you by Band of Outsiders. Basically, that’s a fancy way to say “really warm sweatpants.” We’re not exactly sure what kind of customer Band of Outsiders is trying to lure with these slacks. Runners who are always cold? People who like the “wool” part of pants but not really the “pants” part of pants? What about you? Are you a winter hater who says these are totally hot? Or … not? [TrendHunter] Keep reading »

Cheapskate: Cargo Pants For Fall

Amelia and I have been lusting after the J Brand skinny cargo pants all the celebs have been wearing. But those pants cost more than $200, and we can’t justify spending that much on a garment we can’t wear every single day or at least for really special occasions. To satisfy our cargo desires while sticking to a budget, I hunted through some of our favorite mainstream retailers for cargo pants that are affordable and give butts a nice shape. Check ‘em out after the jump. Keep reading »

Would You Keep Your Legs Cool In A Pair Of Sheer Pants?

The other day, while walking down the street, I noticed (without trying) that the woman in front of me was wearing shorts sheer enough that her undies were completely visible. The shorts were so transparent there was absolutely no mistaking she knew what she was showing the world. Sheer clothes are big for summer, and translucent bottoms seems to be a bit of a trend, as Refinery29 noted at least seven companies that offer sheer pants. I guess if you’re going to wear pants during the summer, gauzy is the way to go. But what do you do about underwear — put it on display? What do you think about these practically transparent pants?

Introducing … Drop Crotch Jeans For Men

As much as we may bemoan the deplorable influence of certain types of harem pants on the fashion scene, we at least understand some of the logic behind them. Sure, you may walk around looking like MC Hammer’s protégé or Lawrence of Arabia, but at least you’ll be comfortable. We can’t, however, find anything similar to say of these new drop crotch skinny jeans for guys. Basically, they’re harem pants made of denim. We’d say these would probably rank up there in the discomfort zone right next to yoga jeans. [Oak] Keep reading »

Could Have Been Worse: A Look At The Norwegian Curling Team’s Uniform Supplier

Curling? WTF is that? Did anyone ever care about this Olympic sport before the Norwegian team showed up with these blindingly loud pants? Either these kids got lost in Johnny Weir’s wardrobe on the way to the rink, or they thought they’d stand out with something different and, uh, attention-grabbing. Grab the world’s attention they did, and now everyone’s aching to know more. (Or more like whhyyyyyyyy???)

The team’s slacks apparently came from a retailer of golf pants named Loudmouth (apt name), which specializes in selling extremely colorful fashions. We took a look at Loudmouth’s offerings, and as much as we’d hope our guys never want to borrow clothes from the Norwegians, it wouldn’t be as bad as what the team didn’t pick.

10 Ridiculous Lady Laws That Are Still On The Books

Even though Paris is the fashion capitol of the world, it is still technically against the law for a woman to wear pants there. Someone should tell the police quick … they could have made a killing during Fashion Week. But seriously, how crazy is that? This ridiculous law has survived years of attempted upheaval. In 1892, the law was amended to say that trousers were permitted “as long as the woman is holding the reins of a horse.” In 1909, female cyclists were declared exempt. After a couple more attempts over the ages, I guess the ladies (and police) forgot the law even existed and went right on ahead breaking it by proudly rocking their pants. That got me thinking. What other crazy kinds of laws are there that we don’t even know about? Wait for this one. I discovered that here in New York a woman can incur $25 fine for flirting! Oops … I broke that law like a million times. After the jump, some more archaic lady laws that need to be repealed pronto. [Newser, Dumblaws] Keep reading »
