Spring Trends: Buy, Wear, Toss

Pants and Skirts

What's trending this season for pants and skirts? Let's take a look.


This season, go shopping for trousers. We're talking tailored pants, not jeans. Channel Diane Keaton in "Annie Hall" with these wide-leg or flared, high-waisted slacks. The skirt/dress trend this spring is tail hems. A tail hem garment is something that's shorter in the front and longer in the back (the mullet of the fashion world).


Just because trousers are in style this season, it doesn't mean you have to get rid of your jeans. That includes your skinny jeans. Keep your denim for casual looks -- just make sure your jeans are in good shape with no stains, rips or tears. If you have a few A-line or pencil skirts in your closet, keep those as well. They're classics and always in style.


As with everything, if it shows signs of wear or has a stain, toss it. While you're at it, get rid of those jeggings, too. Also, even though wide-leg and flared pants are in, if yours look more like the polyester styles from the 70s, toss them. The skirt trend this season is flowy, maxi or bubble -- so if you never felt comfortable in your micro-mini, take this opportunity to toss it.
