There are certain trends we always expected to see at fashion month—cropped jeans, slip dresses, and slipper flats all included—but what we didn’t expect to see was the return of stirrup pants. You might remember wearing them in legging-form in your childhood—they were big back in the ’90s, but back then, we wore them tucked into our ankle boots. Now, street style stars like Vogue Australia’s fashion director Christine Centenera, fashion blogger Pernille Teisbaek, and stylist Tamu McPherson have all stepped out in a version of the pants in the past week.
The way they’ve styled the look is decidedly different to the way we remember it, with the stirrup acting as an obvious focal point of the look. McPherson styled her denim-take on the trend over a pair of Prada Suede Mules ($860), Centenera opted for more business-ready look with a trouser-style version of the pants with a tweed blazer, and Teisbaek went for a low-key option with a legging-style pair and a slouchy jumper.
