Style Glossary: Paperbag Pants

Paperbag Pants

High-waist pants that have a gathered waistband, usually tied by a sash or belt made of the same fabric. The term originated because this new style of pant looks like the top of a paper bag. Skirts can also have the same paperbag-like detail. The moniker isn't appealing, but paperbag pants look great on tall girls who seek a comfortable androgynous look.

Get tied up with this Rag & Bone Paperbag Pant ($295).

If these pants were less huge, more subtle they'd be cute.
