The wide legged pants go way back in the 1920’s, when they were initially worn as lounge pants. Remember the silky loose pantsworn by the glamorous women looking all sultry in their abode!? The silky pants worn with velvet or silk jackets was the loungelook of the famous stars and it caught the fashion wave and women started wearing them to holidays too. In the 1930’s this lounge attire moved to the beach and was modified as the beach pyjamas printed in floral patterns.
In the mid 1930’s, the style was reformed to the widest pleated pants ever worn. Top and Pant sets with matching belts came in vogue followed by jumpsuits in the late 1930’s. The trend continued through every decade …….peaking in the 1970’s with the rise of boho hippie culture – which brought a revival of the wide legged bell bottoms back from the 1930’s.
An Evolution of lounge pants could be seen prominently taking it a notch above with the flashy buttons in the front adding much statement to the look.
These pants have made a comeback with amazing weaves. They are present in different fabrics -from linen, cotton, wool etc. Wide legged pants are perfect for leisure wear. The one’s I am wearing particularly are very casual ones with pockets. To add some vibrance to the boring grey, I teamed a colourful striped top. You can also wear these grey pants with a classic white shirt, or a white shirt with the balloon sleeves or colourful tops to get a perky disposition.
These pleated wide legged pants are comfortable and breathable. I like the detailing of the belt on the waist, which gives more character to my pants. Similar pants in Wool and checks look super fashionable in the Fall Season with a well cut jacket. The cut and fabric change the dynamics of a garment phenomenally.
The wide legged pants are a statement in itself, so grab them now and team them with t-shirts, shirts, fun accessories like bracelets and sunnies.The wide legged pantslook great with the wedge pumps or flats ….depending on your look and comfort. I have mine ready for fall as well……what about you?
Hello Fashion Lovers!!!
Just like anything amazing......Fashion is like the flowing creative energy of the soul through which one expresses oneself in gorgeous styles and colours. A charismatic person possesses a unique style, beauty, knowledge and execution. And needless to say, that reflects perfectly in how one carries oneself. Grace, elegance and chicness are the most important attributes on the fashion meter for me and wrapping that with abundant self love and positivity is a real game changer that creates magic with the ensembles. I believe we all receive a special message by the universe and mine is certainly is to become more capable and unleash my creativity in every way I can.
I am most excited to write on my fashion blog - "Her Tinted Closet". I pondered for days to find the right name for my baby blog. I loved the name because it reflects my personality - with many shades and stories to share. 💕
Love for fashion was instilled in me ever since I started recognising the magic of uniting the right combinations. An attire can create a spell, if they are perfectly put together. As a child, I would team up outfits innovatively and look beyond the ordinary. From being a fashion connoisseur, and a model, I ventured into the equity world and gained insights into business. I am also a trained actor and have acted in plays and short films.
Being a spiritual seeker - I am also into healing. This has changed my vibe as a human being and has made me understand the power of a human mind and energy. Am absolutely grateful for that!! Spirituality has always fascinated me......the path has only lead me to discover the divinity within and strive to be the best version of myself.
Chic Styling has been a part of my personality.....My ultimate fashion icons have been Cindy Crawford, Latetia Casta, Gisele Bundchen, Claudia Schiffer, Monica Bellucci. Style is just never about brands alone, but how you bring out the best, by embracing yourself, keeping fit and understanding your body and styling it with a fabulous ensemble of fabric and accessories.
My love for fitness has always inspired me to push limits to achieve higher goals. I believe that one's physical, emotional and spiritual self should be aligned to bring a balance in life and manifest the best for self and others. So Love your mind, body and soul.....It is a way to be aligned with the universe!!!
"Her Tinted Closet'' will give all the charismatic style lovers access to the chic, elegant, sporty, edgy, sexy, bohemian, casual, and many more hues waiting to be discovered.
Lets unfold the journey together - WELCOME TO "HER TINTED CLOSET"!

Beautifully written and deeply researched artical ! What I love about Rupika writings is bringing the sense of fashion of an era gone by and making it still so relevant to contemporary fashion!!!
