Andra Naylor for Second City Style Magazine
At Second City Style, we love to write about trends: those to avoid (see Fashion Focus: Taking Out the Trash) and those that can be controversial (Retail Therapy: Ruffled Feathers), and most frequently, those that we’re loving at the moment.
And sometimes, if a trend is really lucky, it can evolve into
something bigger and better, emerging as a full-fledged stylish
mainstay. Fashion is always objective, but here’s the top list of trends that have earned a permanent spot in my closet.
The Skinny Pant
Skinny pants, especially jeans, were a very scary introduction a couple years ago. It
can be a difficult look to pull off depending upon body type, but I’ve
become convinced that a black pair in the right fabric is now a
wardrobe staple. We know they look great with a tall pair of heels,
and can be very hip with funky flats. If you’re still a bit
uncomfortable with the narrow silhouette, try easing into it by pairing
them with a longer tunic-style shirt or even a tank and long cardigan.
And remember, this doesn’t mean a standard pair of bootcut or flared
pants is out of style, but that the skinny is an additional option in
your fashion arsenal. Congratulations skinny pants!
