Dear readers, I am participating in Alphabe-Thursday where ‘G’ IS FOR ‘GAP’ AND OTHER TROUSERS TRENDS – WINTER/SPRING 2010/ 2011!

Here are some trends as exemplified by Gap and three other manufacturers. Now, I confess I live in trousers but I’m not totally sure about some of these. Do tell me what you think!
1. Gap (Premium) (above)
2. Gap (True Straight) (below)
3. Gap (Perfect)
4. Gap (Really Skinny)
5. Gap (Slim Cropped)
6. Gap (Boy Fit)
7. Gap (Modern Boot)
8. Gap (Curvy)
9. Gap (Relaxed Crop)
And three non-Gap designs:
10. Preen
11. Michael Kors
12. Jaeger

Do tell me! And do check out other Alphabe-Thursday posts @ Jenny Matlock!
And, finally, thank you to all my dear readers and also new followers who visited or commented this week! Have a great weekend!
And see you again for Ruby Tuesday!

Lucky ME! I can wear 2,3,4,5,6,7,8 and probably the last ones except I don't dig the styles. Good job on Letter G!

Jo said...

I love that Gap makes a jean for almost every body type ... so kudos ... and Michael Kors always seems to produce classic and wearable pants.

Tracy said...

I love these clothes. Since January I have lost 2 stone and dropped 3 dress sizes . Suddenly clothes are intersting for me.

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

I'm pretty much a jeans kind of girl, but when I do dress up, it's usually some sort of dressy pants.

I love all of these!

Genie said...

I love the look of all of these...I just wish I had the LONG slender legs of the models. At 71 I just wear what I have worn for years and buy very little. My preference is flax.Clever post.

Jackie said...

I like the Gap . Modern boot is my favourite and Michael Kors .

JDaniel4's Mom said...

It looks like the Gap is the place to go for jeans. I love the variety.

Berlin said...

I have to say that I have never worn trousers O.o

I'm am diggin' number 1 and 5, LOVE!
As for no.2 and 3, they look normal.

Thank you for your comment, it made me smile :)

Pumpkins bobbing down the streets.

Gap does seem to create jeans for most body types...but I am on the side...and have trouble finding pants. In my younger years....I would have been very happy with these designs!!

Jenny said...

They're all for me, technically, but since I'm a little weight challenged for my height (mwahahaha) I can look but they probably don't come in my size!

I like the idea of the layering in the third one so I may try to recreate something like that at Dress Barn!

Thanks for sharing your wonderful eye with us on this little stop through Alphabe-Thursday.

And I hope this is linking right now!

They all look so great...on these tall girls with no butts. I'm tall, but I have a butt. :(

fredamans said...

Gap is one of my favorite stores. But I happen to be a skinny girl with no butt... Thankfully.

Sue said...

I like the skinny legged pants this year. Of course, I wear them with a tunic because that's the only way I can pull them off.


Nezzy said...

I had been all about the bootcut and flare pant but I bought some Calvin Klein Skinny Jeans and love 'em. They are so comfy and fit like a glove!

God bless ya and have the most amazing day sweetie!!!

Judie said...

NOra, that settles it! I am going on a diet--tomorrow! Great looking clothes!!

La said...

I hope to find something somewhere soon. I am in dire need of some winter clothes. La

I hate to admit it, but I recently bought two pairs similar to #4 to wear with tunic tops. The tops come down below my butt and I'm not a large person, but I am almost 65 and think I'm probably too old for that style. I just have lots of trouble getting slacks to fit and these worked for me.

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Nora and Lola,

We do not have Gap here, so it was good to see their styles of pants.
I would rather wear skirts and dresses, and really only wear jeans around the house.

Hope that you have a lovely weekend

EG Wow said...

Everything looks cool to me. :)

Terra said...

I haven't shopped the gap in a long time...

Rachel Cotterill said...

I'm never a fan of the really tight/skinny styles - no matter how great the model's legs are! The others look great :)

One Heart said...

I actually like all of them except Premium and Really Skinny (1 and 4). I could never pull skinny jeans off but I actually don't even like them on others. They usually make you look too flat from behind. Something odd about them even on thin people.

Fun as usual.

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

I like them all pretty well...except for #4 Really Skinny... I would have to wear a very long shirt if I wore cover up my bottom and belly.

Blessings & Aloha!
Once again...I'm behind, but catching up on blog reading...hope you have some time to stop by mine.

Pondside said...

I'd wear #4 and #6 because I think they'd make me look taller!

Tina said...

they all look great and have a nice fit. i wouldnt know which one to choose!
