Trend Watch: Stirrup Pants

Call me crazy, but once I caught wind that stirrup pants are back in vogue I squirmed a little in my seat.

I know what you’re thinking! You’re thinking I’m about to unload a 300 word rant on why they were left in the 80’s for a reason.

Nope! Sorry to disppoint, but I am pumped to see that seeming unflattering bottoms are back!

Most people will say if you’re going to go for the skinny look just go with skinny jeans (and if you’re seriously behind–leggings), but why can’t we have a little fun with our trends?

Nobody is saying you have to pair these with an oversized sweater and a side ponytail…just because it’s a revival trend doesn’t mean it can’t be modernized.

I say, pair the pants with simplified, streamlined, modern pieces. Some gold hoops here or some silver bangles there will pull your look together marvoulously.

Keep it monochromatic! If you’re going to rock the ankle straps, now is not the time to overload on color or pattern. Personally, I’d keep the outfit all black and pair it with a hot pair of pumps (any color or style!).

Most importantly? If you don’t like it don’t wear it. Nothing is more obvious than a girl who’s uncomfortable in her clothes. Being a slave to trends is tacky enough, but if you are clearly hating every second of it, maybe it’s time to re-evaluate your wardrobe…and your outlook!
