While jeans have always been a core part of my wardrobe, it wasn’t until the last several years that other pant styles became just as integral. With so many inventive takes on trousers and tailoring, the options are seemingly endless and I’ve officially entered my pant-girl phase with a closet centered on collecting the latest trends. The F/W 22 runways showcased plenty of directional pant trends and I’m laser-focused on adding some of the key styles into my new season wardrobe.
Designers are experimenting with silhouettes and proportions—among them extra-long puddle pants and super-wide jeans, both of which look great layered with everything from skin-tight bodysuits to oversize outerwear as we saw on the runways at The Row and Khaite. Pants are also getting more industrial with utility-geared interpretations including heavy leather and cargo pants, which are entering the sartorial scene for fall. No matter which side of the personal style spectrum you’re on, there is a piece to test-drive next season. Ahead, the 6 biggest pant trends to know for fall 2022.
