Top Tips To Wearing Drop Crotch Pants
Drop crotch pants are a trend that is here to stay. Occasionally women can feel a bit out of their comfort zone to start with and we often hear ladies say “Oh I could never wear those” or “I couldn’t pull them off” but it is actually all just a mind set. At Et Vous we are big advocates of women wearing whatever fashion they like, anything they feel happy and confident in. Having a great attitude and rocking your outfit shows in how you carry yourself. So if you want to wear drop crotch pants out to an event and love your look then you go for it! There is no age limit to who can wear these pants, some of the coolest people we have seen wearing them have been in their 60’s, check out style blogger Lyn Slater as Accidental Icon. We’ve outlined some of our tips to wearing drop crotch pants below, especially helpful for first timers who might not know where to start.
Ease yourself in to it. If you haven’t worn drop crotch pants before start with a small drop or get some that you just wear around home first to get used to the new style and look. Relaxed and boyfriend fit are a great option. Looser fit and a small drop but still tailored round the calf. Drop Crotch pants are super comfortable, we think you won’t want to take them off.
Try different outfit combinations. See what you like wearing best with the drop crotch pants. We all like different looks, but often balancing the pants with a more fitted or feminine top suits the casual look of the drop crotch. Don’t be afraid to accessorise, wear your edgy scarf and handbag, look at the outfit as a whole not just your pants.
Wear with heels. You know how you often see those cool street style fashion bloggers with their drop crotch pants and heels, that could be you! Heels automatically make the pants more dressed up and give your leg an elongated look. They can give you that extra lift in height and in your confidence.
Size up. There is nothing wrong with going up a size to get the right fit. Drop crotch pants look better when they are slouchy and not super tight round the waist and bum. Don’t judge them based on how they look on the hanger, try them on and go up a size if you need to too get it right.
Fabric is key. Different fabrics will sit differently when you wear them, a softer cotton stretch will hang low down in the crotch where other stiffer fabrics won’t hang so much. It is all personal preference. If you get a style with an elasticated or tie waist you will be able to choose how low or high the drop sits.
Tip from us:
You do you! Just because other people might not be a fan, or your friend doesn’t wear them, or your partner tells you they don’t like them, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t wear drop crotch pants. Experiment with different styles, get the size right and wear whatever makes you feel good.
