Leg Room


Girls who wear the pants, this was a good season for you. While a few designers continued to play with skinnies—Proenza guys and your new friend J Brand, we’re looking your way—several designers played with a slightly looser silhouette, cutting pants that fit around the legs but stay straight below the knee. No doubt the skintight look is sticking around, but the more ladylike, professional style of the trousers at (left to right) Derek Lam, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Prabal Gurung are great for day—if not, in every case, for the office. Alexander Wang’s cutout-accented pair isn’t recommended for the boardroom. But we would recommend them for just about everywhere else.
