Why We Love It
Daytime dressing, especially for work, just got sooo much easier. We're not talking about skinny, dhoti, cropped, or quadruple-pleated pants. It's accessible, hands-in-pockets, meant-for-strutting trousers that are back.
Make It Work for You
Though menswear fabrics are used, the cut is fuller on top (hips are a major focal point this fall) and tapered, so even minus the jacket, they're a shapely counterpoint to a feminine blouse. Dress shorts
are a surprisingly acceptable alternative to minis when worn with dark tights.
