Yohji Yamamoto, a renowned Japanese fashion designer, popularly known for his avant-garde tailoring, once said that
“… A pair of brilliantly cut trousers can be more beautiful than a gorgeous silk gown”
and he wasn’t wrong. Trousers are the outer garment covering the body from the waist to the ankles, with a separate part for each leg. They are essential fashion pieces that, when worn right, can elevate and pull the entire outfit together.
Historically, trousers were initially military garments. They were made to be snug shorts or loose fitting trousers that closed at the ankles, for easy movement and covering. It was only during the 19th century that we began to see trousers like the ones we generally wear today. They were a looser fit with a button fly, worn in neutral colors and weren’t even considered acceptable women’s attire until the 1970s. These days, trousers are worn by women for all occasions without any masculine connotations as it aids agility and shows confidence as well as a heightened sense of style.
