I suspect the fashion world is incredibly sick of
pants that aren’t pants. Cough cough, leggings,
jeggings and any other lycra-blend travesty that
ends in “eggings” (and later, actual eggings. From
me.) I mean, look at the evidence: they’ve endorsed
the original casual pant – jeans – so heavily they’re
persuading us to wear them all over our bodies.
Then, we’re marched right into military where
epaulettes and khaki have been flung about to
persuade us into uniform. Then, every possible
Annie Hall-inspired, quirky look at androgyny is
thrown in our path to the point where women have
started wearing spectacles and bowler hats, and
now? Chinos! The crisp, preppy trouser favoured by
Lacoste wearers of the 1990s are back in the spotlight.
Of course, reinvention is the key: you don’t need to
team these with a polo shirt and a Hamptons holiday
house; chinos today are softer, chicer, distinctly cool.
The silhouette is slimmer, the tailoring less clunky. The
ankle-skimming length (cropped or rolled) is a sweet
nod to 50s style – team it back with a simple pump or
cute flats for a little Jacqueline Kennedy flair.
