aren't they also known as goucho pants? I'm also having trouble picturing what they are.

I'm remembering "Never Been Kissed" with Drew barrymore wearing a pair in the beginning.


Am I wrong?

I'm posting a picture for anyone else who had no clue what was being talked about. I personally don't like them.

I guess if you have the right body you can pull them off. I'm sure they'll be back.. Like everything else.

They're gonna be big for fall

So are bell shaped sleeves and capes. Clothing is going to be much looser and more layered than previously.

I think its part of a general trend towards more comfortable dressing.

By time fall comes round I thikn that many of you will have changed your minds, trends can look wierd when they're very new.

Fashion is all about timing - being too early can be as bad as being too late.

I would wear grey pleated culottes a la Heidi Slimane with knee length suede boots if I could find any...

But women just haven't got the figure to wear them...IMO...
