Stir­rups: Yay Or Neigh?

No, pony club is not in ses­sion. In­stead, you’re look­ing at the fash pack’s new trews ob­ses­sion

Look (UK) - - FIRST -

What’s the deal with trousers, eh? Whether they’re palazzo, peg or the dreaded harem, mere weeks after they reach peak pop­u­lar­ity, they be­come passé. Old hat. Un­fash­ion­able.

It’s in­evitable, and we’ve come to terms with the fact that our love for cer­tain strides will be for­ever fickle. And in no un­cer­tain cir­cum­stances, the same fate will be­fall the lat­est trouser trend to hit the sar­to­rial scene.

Miroslava Duma and Pernille Teis­baek have both taken a leaf out of Marni’s AW17 book, don­ning stir­rup trousers for all to see. A must-have for jock­eys, both pro­fes­sional and am­a­teur, as well as be­ing an in­te­gral part of our child­hood uni­form, there’s no deny­ing their prac­ti­cal­ity where boots are con­cerned.

But slung over heels? We’re on the fence. To help you de­cide, two Look staffers have made their cases on the mat­ter. Should you find you're up to the chal­lenge, we sug­gest in­vest­ing in the £15.99 Zara ver­sions in­stead of the £790 cat­walk orig­i­nals. Un­less you fancy eat­ing hay for the next six months, that is…


The sec­ond I saw stir­rups on the Marni run­way my life did a 360. I’ve wasted so much time hoist­ing down trews that roll up un­der my boots, but that prob­lem is now solved. Plus, it means I don't have to wear socks, and I never was a sock kinda gal…


You know how some things grow on you over time? Well, these don’t. Not only do they draw at­ten­tion to your feet but they’re so im­prac­ti­cal. Think about it; how are you meant to walk like a nor­mal per­son with your feet hooked into har­nesses?
