This Provocative Pant Trend Is Getting Huge

Though on the whole, the trend landscape has been skewing more conservative of late (sweatpants, sneakers, suiting, etc.), there’s a small handful of almost overtly sexy trends that have emerged in recent months, including the subject of today’s story. No, we’re not talking about off-the-shoulder tops; rather, we’re discussing lace-up trousers.

It’s not the first time we’ve seen these head-turning bottoms steal the spotlight. Thanks to designers like Isabel Marant this obsession has gone through a few cycles, and right now it’s back in full force. Fashion influencers like Bella and Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Alessandra Ambrosio have all been spotted in lace-up trousers over the last month or so, and we have to admit that as daring as this trend may be, we’re totally game to give it a go.

See below for ways to pull lace-up trousers off, and shop our picks to get the look.
