Who knew a pants in the shape of a paper-bag could be so stylish? This season, the waist-slimming silhouette has quickly become a favorite of celebs like Sienna Miller and Victoria Beckham. Not only does the cinched-waist-wide-legs style look good on almost all body types, it also provides an opportunity to break from the ubiquitous skinny jeans we've been seeing for years. Comfy yet chic, it’s no wonder that the pants are one of fashion’s biggest trends right now.
Kendall Jenner, who just became the most popular model on Instagram—she posted the most liked photo during the fashion month with a whopping 2.3 million likes—recently tried out the pants on the streets of Los Angeles. Dressed in head-to-toe yellow, the model wore a lemon-hued lingerie top, which she previously sported back in August, with a pair of oversized paper-bag waist pants from her own Kendall + Kylie collection. The canary furry slides matched the boudoir sensibility of the lacy top, while the blue-frame sunglasses provided a nice color contrast to the bold and bright ensemble.
Jenner has been a fan of the hourglass shape as of late. Last week, the 21-year-old left the Chanel fall 2017 runway show wearing a pair of oversized menswear-inspired chinos with a short furry jacket. And during Milan fashion week, she paired her waist-whittling trousers with a cropped Vetements x Champion hoodie in bubblegum pink.
If you want to try the paper-bag pants trend, follow Jenner's cue and mix up your proportions. For a flattering hourglass silhouette, opt for a tight top, like a cropped tee or a lingerie-style camisole, with a pair of voluminous pants. Keep your accessories minimal, like Jenner, to keep all the focus on your Instagram-worthy statement pants.
