“Wearing the Pants”
Tailored pants, where the masculine becomes feminine are a great look worn with or without a jacket.
A tailored pant, a cashmere sweater and a pair of brogues are another easy outfit to chase the winter blues far away.
Tailored pants are the kind of piece that can look downright dowdy if they aren’t accessorised in the right way; they can also be one of the most attractive pieces in the wardrobe. Think about Katherine Hepburn, she raised the tailored pant to a whole new level.
I like the tailored pant worn with a jacket, suit style and I also love them worn on their own with a simple cashmere sweater, a turtleneck or classic white shirt.
A tailored pant has never been out of style.
The waistbands move up and down and the legs get slimmer and wider but the way to wear them remains the same.
A straight or slightly tapered leg is my go-to with a front zip or oftentimes side zip, depending on the cut. Wide legs, as we have discussed before, aren’t on our side but a slim line leg most definitely is. Skinny pants are brilliant but they have a more casual look and don’t reflect the masculine/feminine mix that a tailored pair will.
Wear the tailored pant with a sneaker, break out the brogues or hit the streets in a stiletto; the men can’t have all the fun. xv
