Sometimes all it takes for me to lose focus is for designers to send something down the runway that I hate with a passion. Like high-waisted pants. Because, unlike leggings or skinny jeans which you can dress around, there are no fixes for high-waisted pants other than to be 6 feet tall and weigh 98 lbs. to pull them off.
It seems like almost every designer had a variation of the high-waisted pant in the spring collections, like Cynthia Rowley did (pictured, right.) And while I can forgive things like ridiculously short skirts, see-through blouses and other fashion follies that make the show more theatrical, those high-waisted pants may just drive me nuts. Because they are pretty much unwearable. Only Derek Lam (who makes great looking American sportswear) made me think twice and wonder how much Spanx it would take for me to pull off his terrific-looking denim pantsuits with high-waisted pants.
