The Trend: Lace-front pants
The Old Way: Second-skin bellbottoms all the way, baby. I had a corduroy pair by Paris Blues that were neither from Paris nor blue, but still the best thing ever!
The Update: It's okay to still go with something fitted, but it shouldn't have a hugely-belled hem; slightly cropped or slightly flared is the way to go. Then, to avoid any Coyote Ugly moments, be sure to pair it with something a little looser up top.
