Success S t y le
Straight from the closets of fashion icons Jackie
Kennedy and Audrey Hepburn, pedal-pusher pants
are back in style for Spring.
TEX T BY MARIEL A ORTEGA
Too long to be shorts, too short to be pants, pedal-pusher pants
are the perfect in-betweener piece to give a fashion-forward yet
vintage look to any closet. Closely related to the “capri”, these
essentials are tight on the leg and just off the knee. Dating back
to the late ‘50s and early ‘60s, they made a brief comeback
during the late ‘90s thanks to Britney Spears, but the fad didn’t
stick. Embraced by fashion leaders such as Dolce & Gabbana and
Jacquemus at their Spring/Summer runways, the trousers are
shown in different styles and colors so everyone can enjoy this
reborn trend. Available in leather, denim or silk, the look can be
complemented with flats, sandals or boots below and crop-tops,
shirts and t-shirts above. Style them up or dress them down —
anything goes. But above all, embark on this new style adventure
by rejoicing in the freedom of new beginnings.
