Five years ago, if someone had told me that capri pants would be outdated in a few years, I don’t know if I would have believed them. At 5’4″, I am used to spending a lot of time and money at the tailor or buy pants with an inseam of 28″ or less. But now the year is 2022 and cropped pants increasingly feel like a distant memory. In its place are puddle pantsand celebrities are increasing their importance every day.
Puddle pants are pretty much exactly what they sound like: super long pants (or jeans) that pile up around the ankles, dragging on the floor. Pants dragging on the floor aren’t exactly music to my ears, but a trend is a trend, and you can always wear heels to minimize chafing. But some celebrities, like Zoe Kravitz, embrace the puddle and even wear flats with the trend. Others, like Kate Middleton and Rihanna, wear them with their highest heels. Whatever your shoe preference, puddle pants are becoming one of the biggest pants trends of 2022. Scroll down to see which stylish celebrities are wearing them and shop my favorite pairs of puddle pants.
