Are You Ready to Free Your Ankles From the Constraints of Skinny Pants?

Fall 2010 looks from left: Balmain, Derek Lam, and Gareth Pugh.

For too long, putting on pants has been a chore. For years we have squeezed our feet in and out of the tiny opening at the bottom of a skinny leg, and taken them off only to invariably leave the pants turned inside out. What a bother! Maybe that had something to do with the world's busiest people, like Lady Gaga, giving up on pants entirely. But for fall, flared legs are back. They popped up on the fall runways of Derek Lam, Balmain, and Gareth Pugh, to name a few, where ankles breathed once again! Are you ready for a new cut of pant, or do you want to wear leggings and skinnies for life? Thoughts, fears, laments, pleas all welcome in comments.
