Good News: Fall 2006 Isn't Just About Leggings

Good News: Fall 2006 Isn't Just About Leggings

As you know from my earlier post about Fall 2006 fashion trends, I am definitely on the fence about the whole leggings and skinny jeans thing. I am just not sure I can pull off the look. One thing I know I can handle, however, is another Fall trend: tailored wide-legged trousers. Here are a few of my favorites, including designer and non-designer finds:

Designer Picks

Marc by Marc Jacobs Herringbone Wide-Leg Pants, $278.00, Available here.

Theory Emery M Pant, $230.00, Available here.

To see how to get this look at non-designer prices,

I really prefer the wide trousers except I'm really short and they make me look squat unless I wear really high boots or heels, and then I might kill myself in pain or fall over eventually. As for the leggins and skinny jeans, I have wide hips for a little person, so it would make me look disporportionate. The trick is finding pants that elongate your figure if you're short.

never, ever liked leggings. maybe for a day before they were trendy. but those wide trousers are sexy if you have the right body.. like tall and thin. :]

I guess I shouldn't complain because they're a lot better than leggings, but if you're a size 14 (like me) wide legs are horribly unflattering. They make me look just as fat as skinny jeans. I prefer a nice happy medium between super skinny and super wide.

yes! these look good on almost everyone. plus they are a much easier trend to pull off for those of us who have to look professional - at least some of the time...

Trousers are great for school and work- and you can dress them up with a fancy blouse and heels. I have alot of trouser pants, so I am content they are in fashion! Live Much.Laugh Often.Love Always ♥

Okay, I'll admit it: I am way too old for leggings except in the privacy of my own home. Skinny jeans look like a total disaster for me as well. These pants look a little more user friendly for real women.

I hate wide leg! The bagginess makes me feel like my legs are fat. It's either bootleg or skinny for me.

I hate those pants, they look to seventies.

I think wide leg pants are awesome! They really give your waist a thinner look and after four kids, I'm into that!

i tried some on from the Gap, and they made my legs look like a stump. Im 5'2. I didnt try them on with heels though.

I'm a short girl, too, malibu. You can wear 'em if you've got heels underneath and hips on top.

mal....i am 5'4 and i love them. I just make sure to wear a nice heel.

Aww I love leggings

I don't know who the genius was who tried to bring leggings back, but that was a big mistake. We wore them in the 80's (and early 90's with baby doll dresses) because we didn't know better. Now there is no excuse. ON the other hand...I LOVE wide legged trousers. They look so classic and sophisticated. Another reason to look forward to fall:)

great cause I wasn't getting into all the legging trend. I'm loving the styles picture here, they look so dressy. Time to go shopping!
Thank Goodness for this. I don't think I can pull off leggings and skinny jeans. I have fat thighs and they'd only make them look even fatter! Hey MS, haha you're right about the cheap versions looking cheap. I guess you get your money's worth. I don't like the color of the last one.

is it just the photographs, or do the cheap versions seem really... well... cheap? i think maybe FAB is making me covet pricey designer items now... :)
