High Waisted Wide Leg Pants!!!

The High Waisted Wide Legged Pants - Rupika ChopraGo Vintage with the High Waisted Pants :

The wide legged pants go way back in the 1920’s,  when they were initially worn as  lounge pants. Remember the silky loose pants worn by the glamorous women looking all sultry in their abode!? The silky pants worn with velvet or silk jackets was the lounge look 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 pants look 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 Rock Lovers!!

I hope you all have been shining in your own light and if not ….it’s never too late to dig beneath your own feet and find Gold!!!

Singing along Dua Lipa now………before I begin to write more, let me share my frenzy for music with you all. Proud to share that I had a girl band in college. Shooting for this blog post turned out to be much fun as we created “happy moments” with my dear rockstar friend,  Jasleen Aulakh, an amazing and a soulful singer!  I dedicate this blog post to our friendship over the years!! And more so, we could not miss some Guitar & Glam for this feature!!

A Rocker for me is anyone who defines life with his/her own beliefs and sets the stage of life on fire with that emotion. The Rebel, The Artist, The Hero –  A Rockstar is a “Rule Bender” for the same reason! They love being real and the beauty is they do it with madness for the art which magnifies their being as vast as the Universe, making the world go CRRRAAAZZZYYY with their charisma. There is a revolutionary residing within them.

Edgy and glamorous, the rock chic style flashed the fashion scene in the 1970’s and mind you it is never going out of vogue ever!! The bell bottoms, loud shirts, slogan T- shirts, Torn Denims with badges and pins  are always going to set this look apart. When I dress up edgy, I instantly feel a renewed sense of confidence to enjoy my evening, rolling with some cool music from all Genres. Its a “HIGH” ……the “high” of your soul, your attire and the “high” of music ……and when you share that with the people who vibe with you…….the Euphoria is inexplicable!!

It is just so easy to dress up like a Rock chic – you can wear a pair of torn slim or flared denims/ leather pants/ ripped shorts / leather skirt with a ripped t-shirt, or a cool shirt, wear some cool accessories like a funky bracelets, a hat,  boots or Edgy Heels. Wear a sexy leather jacket to add some weight of your frenzy if you like. There’s so much that you can do with this look….like add a bandana, wear a black nail paint, make your eyes all smoky or add a lot of kohl to look dramatic. 

I chose the glam look and knotted my favourite shirt with stars hanging from one end. This shirt is a very unique one. This black denim is my favourite pair from “True Religion”. It is a statement in itself as their fit and detailing is Fab and uplifting. The white detailing on it makes one look sharper. A pair of Black Aviators or Metallic glasses will go perfectly with this attire. I am wearing my snake leather white pumps which are comfy and edgy at the same time. You have often seen me wear the same bracelets…..they are a part of me and I love them for they have healing energies.

“High and Waisted”

High Waisted Tapered Pants - Rupika Chopra

The Super High Waisted Tapered Pants 🙂 

Who wears the pants in the House ……..Yeah…we do!!!

Summer is not yet over guys …….and till we can flash those abs without feeling the chill ….yeah… we will flaunt it, because we have it !!Oh my!! I still remember looking at Claudia Schiffer’s pictures in the high waisted pants …..Simply breath taking!!!                      I remember I got mine tailored in school just the same way and I did not feel any less wearing them to my school carnival. 🙂

From a time, when it was a big deal for women to wear pants in 1940’s …..(when women were striving for equal rights with men) – To now in the Millennial age – women have adorned pants from High, Mid to Low waist, boasting different cuts…..and styles. Pants actually paved their way through the bloomers. In 1851 a bloomer craze took over among women and they wore it under their dresses pushing boundaries with men. During the World War 1, when men went to  war, the women took their roles and wore their pants to work comfortably in the factories.

It was in the 1920 ‘s when Coco Chanel stole her lovers riding trousers and wittily designed women’s pants for the purpose of riding. The famous Hollywood beauties Katherine Hepburn and Marlene Dietrich wore trousers and also photographed in a man’s Tuxedo…..which gave freedom to women to wear pants without being looked down upon in society. 

High waisted pants became a “must have” in 1970’s and the 80’s. By then the High Waisted Denims became super popular. Owning a pair was a must for every girl!!  Ask any lady about their closet favourite at that time…and they will surely mention about this versatile piece from their closet.

In 1990’s ofcourse the low rise waist took over and almost replaced the “high waisted fever ” for a while. But it happily found its way back in the fashion scene, taking over catwalks for all seasons. From Spring to Winter ……there are amazing styles displayed across the globe. I love the fact that fashion storyline has become so eclectic and similar across the world, thanks to globalisation undoubtedly.

These Super High Waisted Tapered Pants are comfortable and cool to hang in anywhere. You can even wear them to work with a tucked in shirt or a sweet white top. They surely look elegant and accentuate your waist beautifully.

My white knotted shirt and flats ooze a relaxed vibe. I chose my Hat as the best accessory with this look and added some colour with my sun glasses.  The detailing on the trousers with crochet flowers is the most attractive part of my Kecks.
