My MANy Bags Trendspotting #137


Below: Carrot pants are my new favourite for Fall Winter 2010! Have you gotten yours yet? These slouchy on the top but skinny on the legs trousers are seen on many runways... from Dries Van Noten's cuffed hem versions...



Below: to Dolce & Gabbana's tailored or washed effect styles...

Below: Find affordable versions of skinny carrot pants at Topman, so many colours and fabrics to choose from...they looked fab dressed up or down:-)



Below: Carrot pants looked great with blazers or chukka boots like those similar to Pierre Hardy's!


Carrot Pants For Men


Typically a silhouette of trousers for women, these roomy at the crotch but tapered at the legs design (hence the shape of a carrot) are now seen commonly for men's collections. From Dries Van Noten to Dolce & Gabbana to Neil Barrett, designers are embracing this shape of pants for their boys. This fall winter 2010, the legs are even more skinny to emphasize the tapered shape and the volume on top. I really love the interesting proportion which gives skinny or baggy pants a run for their money.

Slim guys worked this style of pants especially well, since it gives a bit of volume to the lower body but still tight at the legs. The carrot pants are also very versatile and can be worn for many different looks. Rolled up the hem and pair with blazers for casual dandy flair, tucked into boots for a tough appeal or get those cuff hem versions which seem like a hybrid of sweat pants and tailored looks. The possibilities are countless!

I love my carrot pants, having gotten a few pairs myself. Topman has many designs to choose from, in many colours and fabrics, all at a good price (From SGD$83). Of course, for guys who wants the best, top luxury menswear designers are more than willing to offer you their luxurious versions.

What do you think of carrot style pants?

i think these looks are fine. what i can't stand is fitted pants with the cuffs rolled up too high on the shin. it's an awful look on any man (and boy). now if the pants were more roomy, then it's fine. think girls doing the BF jeans look. it works cos the jeans are about two sizes larger.

I love this look and I didn't even realize it was such a trend. I bought a pair from Ann Demeulemeester this Fall and they are super soft and comfy with that perfect slouch, but taper dramatically at the ankle. LOVE the new silhouette and relaxed appeal.
