White tuxedo pants have been a menswear staple for decades, but only in the past year or so have they really entered the mainstream for women, with trendsetters like Gigi Hadid and Elin Kling rocking them. But despite the pages of photo evidence that they are unequivocally elongating and cool, I always felt intimidated by them. When working on our winter line, it felt like the perfect opportunity to push past my comfort zone and design a tuxedo pant that not only looked cool, but that I felt comfortable in. In the end, I settled on a silhouette that I find flattering on almost anyone—high-waisted and flared, with a few extra inches to make it heel-friendly. Paired with a simple top and strappy heels, the look feels red carpet-ready but solidly within reach.
