With all respect, what if we title this “Thinking of hemming your pants that are too long?” The one in orange is stepping on hers already. They’re all touching the ground or almost to it, except for the gray ones, and she has some kind of waistband problem – like they’re too big by several inches… Anyway, all these lovely trousers are going to be ruined by the day’s end if they don’t pull them up a bit… Thanks.
I do beg to differ, the whole point of the look is the length. Like Rick Owens would say, it’s the glamour of something dragging on the floor and not caring about it. It just takes a certain kind of spirit to pull that off. Either way, it’s a point of view not everyone will share, but it doesn’t make it incorrect. Sometimes we have to remember that there are no rules to fashion.
Yes, those do make for some spectacularly long legs. #2 is just so darn beautiful… but… how on earth do they not keep on falling all the time?! The flares, that I like. But from a practical view, these must be awful to wear… our, maybe, challenging?
Le sigh. I tried to wear my trousers this length in the 1970′s. With platform shoes. Yes, fabulously long legs. However, several times falling bottom over apex, other times twisting my ankle… not to mention the joy of wet fabric flapping around. Never again.
Not a fan, I wore these in the 70′s. Not at all flattering. The bottom is always dirty or chewed up. They also cause you trip and fall. The bells are so wide your will foot catch if your not careful. Some styles should not have encore performances, this is one of them.
wore a pair of flared jeans to my company annual dinner last week (we have a 70s theme this year), they really elongated legs but you have to watch your steps very carefully! and when the “excess” fabric on the legs swinging all the time when I moved, I really felt like contributing some major cleaning to the carpet :)
still, it is a refreshing moment :) Gotta find a way to wear them again so the flared jeans will not sit in my closet forever
