Black pants in cotton slim cut
Cotton pants have a relaxed, slimleg cut that makes them effortless to wear. Slim cut pants have stood the test of time, and like a little black dress, the classic style is one we return to again and again.
While tight-fitting pants are decidedly not a new concept, their origins stretch farther back than you might realize. All the way back to the 17th century, to be exact. Men’s breeches, the old aristocratic grandfather of the skinny jean, were very tight and very popular among French royalty. They fell out of favor for a time, but resurfaced again in the first half of the 1800’s : a mark of rebellion during the French Revolution.
Slim jeans had golden ages in the 1950’s and the 1960's. The style became synonymous with rock n’ roll and the “bad boy” culture that came with it. While jeans weren’t popular with women in the 1950’s, many Hollywood actresses of the decade like Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn wore slim-fit, high-waisted pants, a classic silhouette which is often re-imagined in denim today.It was the “it” pant for the whole decade, until the 1970’s when they were swapped out for bell-bottoms.
The early 2000’s saw boot cut jeans of the late 90’s being pushed to the side byanother skinny jean counterculture movement. Incidentally, we seem to be doing a full cycle of the trend- the skinny styles that were popular in the 50’s and 60’s are the cuts many designers have recently been inspired by.
