Is it a skirt? Is it a trouser? No – well, actually, yes, it is a trouser, but cleverly designed to pool in a deceptively skirt-like manner around the feet! Kinda like the culottes that were so popular in the 80s, only longer.
We can’t help but wonder about the practicality of these trousers. One of the pros of the recent trend for cigarette pants is the lack of dragging heels, of that flap of fabric that gets stuck under your every step and turns a smart pair of trousers into shabby tramp pants at an alarming rate. These might not so much flap under your heels as trip you up completely!
Although, they might prove extraordinarily useful if you have polished wood floors…
What do you think – yay or nay?
