Trend Watch: Skinny VS. Wide Leg Pants

Is it possible for two extremes to exist in peace simultaneously? Let’s hope so, with the newly popular wide leg pant battling for top spot with the long standing gold medalist skinny leg, its hard to imagine they can both be so popular.

I guess it all comes down to the look you are trying to achieve, and quite possibly your body type. Skinny pants make really skinny people look thinner (if you can imagine) and those of the not so skinny variety, well I think you can fill in the blanks. Whereas, wide leg pants, if fitted properly can enhance any body type. The greatest concern is the fit around the waist and upper thigh; this is where the pant is supposed to fit snuggly, but NOT tight and drop to the floor, shapelessly.

Both styles can be worn on the streets, in the office or for a night out on the town. When paired with the right shoes and shirt and are of a flattering fit can enhance anyones wardrobe, today and for years to come. Both skinny and wide leg pants have been popular the past, and have gained recently popularity, but never really ever went fully out of style.

Which one will prevail? Or should we call it a pair, I mean a tie?
