10 Chic Reasons to Leave Your Pants at Home This Spring
Today at the Fall 2016 Marques ‘ Almeida show in London, women paraded down the runway in all manner of XXL ensembles, ranging from long and lean zip-up sweatshirts to oversize hoodies that fell to the knee. The one thing the models had in common? Most of them weren’t wearing any pants. And to be honest, they didn’t need to be. Thanks to the likes of Rihanna and Kendall Jenner, the idea of leaving your trousers at home feels totally tangible—dare we say, freeing!—just so long as the proportions and the styling is right.
If you’re planning to re-create the look, then elevating it, in the most literal sense, is key—yes, there’s yet another reason to get back into a stiletto this spring. We’d say the sportier the sweatshirt, the fancier and more ornate the heel should be: think embroidered or studded with embellishments. And remember, if the top-as-dress theory is still leaving you wanting, throw a pair of stockings or thigh-high boots into the equation for a bit of extra coverage. Above, 10 stylish ways to give the pant-less trend a chic pair of legs.
