PUSH IT REAL GOOD

Grazia (UK) - - 10 Hot_ Stories -

COULD THE PEDAL PUSHER be the most po­lar­is­ing pant on the planet? Sure, if you look at a Kar­dashian or a Bella or Gigi poured into Ly­cra so tight you can prac­ti­cally feel your own blood stop cir­cu­lat­ing, chances are you’re go­ing to think ‘Ab­so­lutely not’. But what if a cer­tain pic­ture of street-style star Pernille Teis­baek – she of the 556k-fol­low­ing In­sta­gram fame – hap­pened to jump out at you be­cause you noted that it was the first time, in a very long while, that you’d seen some­one look cool in pedal push­ers? You note how the flat­ter­ing cut is skim­ming not cling­ing, that there’s no awk­ward ex­pos­ing of the knees. Then you clock the shoes (chic white and pointy from Ba­len­ci­aga), the bas­ket weave leather bag (nice), the in­ter­est­ing belt. But most of all, you clock the jacket, be­cause that sim­ple, sin­gle-breasted jacket, which you are also re­lieved to note will cover your bum and thighs, signals ‘work’ and ‘office’. And sud­denly you’re think­ing, ‘ Could I?’ and ‘ This is ridicu­lous! Why have I never con­sid­ered the long, stream­lined tai­lored short (for that is what they are, es­sen­tially) as a vi­able op­tion for work?’ Hell, make that for work-to-din­ner – you could just swap the jacket for a tux. Turns out, the en­tire fash­ion depart­ment is in agreement. Here, then, our se­lec­tion of the ul­ti­mate smart pedal push­ers out there. So yes, pedal push­ers are back! In fact, they’re the dernier cri in work­wear: mod­ern, flat­ter­ing, ef­fort­lessly do-able, a fresh spin on what to wear to the office – and be­yond.

Fash­ion in­flu­encer Pernille Teis­baek proves pedal push­ers can be chic
