Not so much: pegged trousers
At the 3.1 Phillip Lim sample sale last week, this incredibly chic woman walked into the sale, and she was wearing a look that I'd only seen thus far on The Sartorialist: a cropped blazer and cropped, pegged pants. Proving that everything really does come around again, pegged pants were last popular in the '80s; I had a mean pair of Z. Cavaricci's that I taper-rolled to emphasize the effect. And while I still kind of cringe when I think of my Z's, this woman at the sample sale looked so stylish that I was willing to give them a try. So I headed over to H&M, where I found multiple pairs of pleated, tapered pants: some were cropped, some were full length; some were high-waisted, some were low-rise; some were belted, some were not. Fits were all over the place, but one thing is for certain: These pants are not at all flattering. That is, unless you have the body of a 12-year-old, which was the age at which I had my Z. Cavaricci's. Hips, thighs, belly--these pants do none of those body parts any favors. See, even Rihanna barely pulls them off, and she's like 6 feet tall and gorgeous. Stay away, ladies. Stay away.
