Are gauchos just “movement clothes” or do they serve a higher, fashionable purpose?
In short, “movement clothes.” And not very good ones, either. The wide leg makes working out or otherwise “moving” awkward and potentially dangerous. I find the extra fabric in even just a boot cut movement pant prone to tangling up and causing potential falls.
I never understood the gaucho They were hugely popular amongst the young NYC ladies in 2001-03, who all wore them to run their weekend errands about town. For most women, the low, banded waist, comined with the clingy fabric, created levels of cameltoe or even polterwang seldom experienced before or since. I do see the following “Hot Fash” brand is available at Sears, which should indicate who might be buying these today.
