Navy blue and black. White pants before Memorial Day. Who cares about supposed fashion faux pas anymore? Thankfully, we’re living in a world where anything goes. And that includes spring’s newest trend: pants that drag on the ground ever so slightly.

To be clear, we’re talking about an inch or two of extra fabric; you might want to reconsider if your trousers are any longer.
