It’s official. Women are legally allowed to wear pants in Paris. You might be wondering since when could women not wear pants? A law passed in 1800′s had banned pants wearing by women until now. All thanks to Mrs. Vallud Belkacem, Frances minister for women’s rights. The eighteenth century law stated that women should require the permission of local authorities to dress like a man. Previously there had been some exceptions to the law, in 1892 women were able to don the trouser for an occasional bike ride, by 1909 for horse back riding but never was it legal for casual attire. Parisian women, known for their style have been breaking the rules for decades. As trousers, pants or however you refer to them, changed styles and cuts the women always channeled the “anything he can do I can do better” attitude. So lets take a moment to celebrate pants and why they are O tres chic. First off the most common and trendy are the skinny jean. Skinny jeans look great with heels or flats and elongate the legs. For fun try different washes or for a safe bet, the dark denim wash looks best.

Second, the wide leg is great as a trouser for business attire and sits on the hips which is great for women who have curves. This pair also look great with ankle boots underneath because they add dimension and height.

Lastly, the low rise fit allows for a loose relaxed fit with the ease of wearing sweat pants. Trying it in a fun color looks quirky and cool, just be prepared for everyone to ask: where’d you get that?
