Allure’s Weekly Fablist: Sporty Mesh, Low Slung Pants, Shirty Prints & Paper Bag Waist Trend
LOW SLUNG PANTS
Trouser waistlines have dropped dramatically for the season, resting comfortably at the hip. Whether you go for silk, wool, or cotton, make sure to seek styles with a slouchy, wide-leg shape.
Go sporty with the sheer trend this season and opt for a knit mesh instead of girly lace. Even though mesh has athletic roots, this trend looks equally awesome in a t-shirt shape as it does in a date-night dress. Designers such as Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler and Louis Vuitton used this trend a lot this season.
PAPER BAG WAIST TREND
Among the most flattering of shapes, the paper bag style will nip in your waist, while allowing some breathing room on top and bottom. Tuck a slim top into your skirt or pants of choice to balance out the exaggerated proportions.
From dresses to pants, Oxford stripes are no longer just about the traditional button-down—even in classic shirting, this season brought with it fresh takes on silhouettes and tailoring as seen on the runways from Diesel Black to Carven.
