Conventional pants seem to be a thing of the past, with new trends such as sharara pants, palazzo pants and samurai pants becoming a rage among youngsters. After seeing imitations of her creation — the sharara pants — being stocked by smaller stores, designer Asmita Marwah says, "It’s good that the trend is finally trickling down."
The sharara pants seem to be the new ‘it’ pants for teenagers, who aren’t in the mood to bear the heat in skinny jeans. “They’re extremely comfortable in the humid climate,” says Megha Mehrotra, a college student.
Designer Arjun Saluja, who had introduced loose palazzo pants for men taking inspiration from the dhoti, says the look is slowly becoming popular thanks to its comfort level.
As for the samurai pants, Marwah says, “While the sharara pant’s popularity lies in its comfort and ability to suit every body type, the samurai pant is meant more for slimmer women. But both can be carried off well with a tight-fitting tee or tank top and a pair of comfortable wedges.”
