Well I hope not, because that's not what this trend is about. There's a romantic vibe going on this time around.

rave pants
are hideous as high waisted skinny jeans , just nasty ... the new slouchy pants are of a better material and are tailored ...i think this pant will take of finally after years of flares and skinny jeans , its the sexy boyish and comfy alternative.

:p

But when are you a leader, and when are you a follower? People don't usually live in bubbles, so they are influenced by what's going on in the world...

We've been seeing and talking about volume for a while now, and it simply feels like the time is right for it to a lot of people. If it feels right to you, go ahead and explore it; if not, don't. Simple as that.

Personally, I like it a lot. I was a teenager during the 80's so this feels very nostalgic to me and I have been buying some CdG/Yohji again the past year... Not that I haven't always appreciated their designs/philosophy, but I haven't felt the "need" to actually buy and wear them for a long time. If that makes me a sheep, so be it. :p

I still love and wear my skinny jeans,i like to think i dnt wear them in the contrived,super trendy way that some girls do.
I find the idea of desperately trying to be at the forefront of every new trend before it happens very exhausting.
Besides they wont catch on where i live for at least 3 months

With worries sounding like a bitch, which I don't intend to be,I speak these words :
I don't usually wear stuff because it's trendy, but because I happend to like it..
And it's not that easy to buy something that's not trendy. Because in stores they follow trends and that's when/where you see the stuff/clothes.
So going shopping and avoiding the trendy clothes, is not very easy..
It don't mean that I'm like 'one of a kind' or super cool because I don't follow trends, but come on; Is it really that annoying seeing people with clothes that were trendy last fall?
I do agree seeing people 'trying to hard' and being waaay over scheduel (I don't know if I write that correctly) is frustrating, but then again, not everyone got the money to buy clothes every month, so I think it would be be nice to let people wear what they like, eventhough it may look terrible in your opinion

^^ Absolutely, larichg...

But I think this is a shift of focus from tight to voluminous for seasons to come, and not a short-lived trend. And there are lots of people who don't mind wearing last season, or several seasons old, or decades old... You combine old stuff in new ways, that's part of what makes you stylish. Buying the latest stuff will make you "fashionable", but stylish is more interesting...

And whatever the focus is, there are always alternatives. And you can always pick and choose, mix and match the way you like it...

maybe in menswear...but not in womenswear..
in womenswear volume has been happening for several seasons now...
nothing 'new' about it as far as i am concerned...
(the only skinny thing i have seen is jeans-and i don't think they are going anywhere anytime soon...)

as far as volume all over...
i agree with most people that it is strictly a runway look...
in real life-one needs to balance skinny w/slouchy in order to make it work...
and avoid looking lilke a bag lady or potato sack...

**i think the sheep will try to wear this look head to toe and they are the real victims who will look back and say -
....what was i thinking..?!?......
