Long Pants Are Trending and We May Never Go to the Tailor Again
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.
If you’re under 5’4", you probably hit up your good pal the tailor with any and all pairs of pants. But this season you can forgo the added cost of alterations and let those hems pool around your feet à la Phoebe Philo–era Céline. 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.
It’s finally a short girl’s world, people. Here are eight pairs of pants to buy and wear—as is.
