Are you the one that “wears the pants” in the family? The term pants or trousers have always been referred to masculinity and power. In the early hay days, men of medieval Europe wore snug-fitting trousers or leggings with a short tunic. Women wore a kind of legging or loose britches under dresses in colder weather for warmth. Despite their increasing popularity, trousers weren’t considered acceptable women’s attire until the 1970s. In fact, in some places, it was illegal for women to wear trousers! These days, trousers are worn by women for all occasions without any masculine connotations.

There are so many styles today - capri, bell bottoms, gauchos, chinos etc. However, the straight leg trousers tend to stand out in a subtle way.
