Take away the St. Trinian’s inspired school tie whose stripes unfairly dominate this look and you have not just another example of the evolving silhouette of trousers but also a far-sighted inspiration for this next potential evolution of this women’s trend.
To date we’ve seen most of the styling of wide leg trousers have a 1970s tilt to them and rightly so: fashion is all about reinterpreting the 70s right now. This look differs, however. Wide legged the trousers may be, but their ‘Oxford bags’ cut gives them a 1920s / 1930s overtone – and that’s one of the eras that fashion is likely to reinterpret across 2012 / 2013.
This look was snapped in London by the ever eagle-eyed Wayne Tippetts.
