SS16 trend report: Big pants
Bye bye skinny jeans. According to trend forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort the skinny jeans is history. Over-sized is the new skinny. If one designer is embracing this trend it’s Alessandro Michele for Gucci. Thanks to the return of the 70’s the flares are back, but not only flares are popular. This trend is for men as well as women. However since this silhouette is a bit more surprising for men I share you some of runway highlights as inspiration. Besides flares, overall wide pants are the pair of trousers to invest in for the coming seasons. Especially beige and jeans are beautiful pieces to invest in and easy to combine. Good example of these overall wide pants you can find below from Dries van Noten and Paul Smith. These runway looks might be more for the fashion daredevils, however fun to look at for inspiration.
