Fashion Week: Drapey Pants

Fashion week is officially over. Now is the best time to take a step back and review everything we've seen over the last week. We are serving up all smoking hot trends so that you know what to expect on the street and in the pages of your favorite fashion magazines come next winter.

Drapey and slouchy pants have a reputation for being difficult to wear and the rumors are true. Even though getting the right fit and proportions can be difficult, there is a big payoff when you hit it right. Coming this fall, expect to see a lot more flowey pants.

Make no mistake, these aren't the drawstring pants we've been seeing for the past several seasons. The pants shown on the runway were made of luxe fabrics, like wool, velvet and cashmere. The one aspect that changes is the length of the pants. Donna Karan showed her version cropped while Tia Cibani's were extra long.

This style is usually easier to pull off if you're petite and have narrow legs and hips. If that isn't the case try layering a jacket or bulky sweater over your midsection is another option.
