A few weeks ago when I first spotted these pants, it seemed this fashion trend won’t last long. But the recent New York Fashion Week proved me wrong. These pants are here and are here to stay. From the runways to the streets all fashionistas are wearing paper bags. I mean paper bag pants. And yes, including me.
THE PAPER BAG PANTS ARE THE PANTS YOU MUST KNOW NOW
So what are the paper bag pants anyway? No, these pants have nothing to do with an actual paper bag. The only resemblance you will see is in the waist. Paper bag pants have this waist that reminds us of the paper bags tied with a rope.
Perhaps you will find this pants slightly unusual at first glance. But believe me, they are worthy of purchasing. They look great on every girl no matter her size and curves or lack of them.

While the paper bag pants hide the love rings of the curvy girls and leaving them nothing but the curves they want to enhance, they somehow make curves to the skinny girls too. Take me for example. I guess I can add these pants to the blog post about how to fake curves you liked so much (in case you somehow missed it, be sure to check it here).
Moreover, the paper bag pants make any girl look much taller than she really is. Even when they are cropped.
BEST PAPER BAG PANTS OUT THERE
As said, the paper bag pants are becoming big this season. You can already find this type of the waist on any type of trousers. From wide-leg trousers like the ones, I’m wearing this time to the leather pants and even jeans. Yes, this trend seems to be everywhere. My favorites? Obviously, the wide-leg pants that I’m wearing. But also the suede paper bag pants. To be honest, I like those even more. In fact, I added them to my fall shopping list too.

HOW TO STYLE PAPER BAG PANTS
Paper bag pants are way much easier to style than you might think. Although, there are actually only a few possible options to style this pants and make sure they do their work. You know, make you look taller and hide what you want to be hidden.
PAPER BAG PANTS OFFICE OUTFITS
To wear these pants at the office simply style them with a boyfriend blazer. Best with the oversized checked boyfriend blazer. Well, yes, I’m not wearing a blazer like that this time, as these photos were taken before the Labor Day. But I think you got the feeling anyway. Besides, I added an updated the EDIT with few tips on how to wear my paper bag pants to the office, street and club in the fall. You will find the EDIT in the bottom of the post.
As it goes for the top, you should wear under the blazer to work. You have two options. Either way, you need to tuck your top into your pants. I wore a silk slip top with lace this time, but as you can see in the EDIT, you can either wear a romantic blouse. Either way, it is important to choose a textured top to balance the look.

The best way to wear this fashionable pants on the street is to style them with a bandeau. I know, you didn’t see this coming for winter, did you? Of course, you should wear the bandeau under the blazer (velvet or gray) or even better the shearling jacket.

Finally, all about my late summer paper bag pants outfit. As said, I wore this before the Labour Day. But you know what, je m’en fous about that rule of not wearing white after the Labour Day. In fact, we don’t know this rule here. Besides, it’s passé anyway.

You can get similar white boyfriend blazer for less than 40 EUR here or another one here. A silk slip top (get similar here). Yes, the same one I used in my feather DIY project over here (you know when I pinned some feathers onto this top to fake the Prada feather trimmed top).
