Tapered leg trousers: still ugly


Don’t be too alarmed by this picture, gentle readers. Our research leads us to believe that these pants are something of a fashion anomaly – there’s nothing to suggest that the tapered leg/high wait/pleat front combo is making a comeback, and that’s a very good reason to feel thankful, because truthfully, we can’t remember seeing this particular style of trouser look good on anyone, EVER – not even on Five Star, back in the 80s, when the tapered legs were actually popular.

Why are Yoox.com expecting people to pay £44 for them now, then? We have no idea. Would you buy them?

    There’s even a place for a belt at the hips UNDER the waistline! Doesn’t that completely defeat the purpose of a belt or even the appearance of a belt? A belt is made to cinch, hold, and in some cases, make the person look slimmer (worn on the natural waist instead of the hips on a dress, for example). This would have the complete opposite effect.
