Fashion Week Favorites - Pants

One of my favorite inspirations from New York's Spring Fashion Week is the introduction of some great new pant silhouettes. While boyfriend and military looks have dominated the last few seasons, these spring pants are much more feminine. I like how they are tapered at the bottom but drape nicely and are more flowy at at the top. Shown: Alice + Olivia and Charlotte Ronson.
