I don't mind some of them....not the really saggy crotch kind, which can be awful, but the more tailored, slouchy on top & fitted around the ankles/calves kind. It's definitely hard to pull off, but I've seen it done. I don't think I'd go there myself. They definitely don't do much for the butt, but it's creating a modern & fresh silhouette - it's not supposed to be sexy.

These are okay:

I think the uglier they are, the more pigeon-toed the models pose for the pics!

Some of those are ok, the ones that are tight at the bottom are cool I think. It is just the ones with the big giant thing hanging down that is the crotch, why? Some other 80s trends are coming too, jelly shoes and bracelets, and fingerless gloves, and a lot others. Madonna recently said she wanted to start wearing her old early eighties look again too.. idk if thats so good now on her though.... .

Hmmmm ..... well, already wear fingerless gloves to the gym! Oh - I guess you didn't mean fingerless workout gloves though.

I actually had several pair that I made myself. One was silver, one was some kind of tropical looking fabric...one pair were actually made out of black lace (I wore black leggings under them). In my defense, I was young, impressionable, and MC Hammer was very popular! NO WAY would I go back to that trend, though!
