Five years ago, if someone told me that cropped trousers would be passé in just a few years, I don’t know that I would have believed it. At 5’4″, I’m used to spending a good amount of time and money at the tailor or shopping for trousers with an inseam of 28 inches or fewer. But now it’s 2022, and it’s all about extra-long puddle pants. Celebrities have been solidifying the importance of this trend more and more every day.
Puddle pants are pretty much exactly how they sound: ultra-long trousers (or jeans) that pool around the ankles, dragging on the floor. Trousers dragging on the floor isn’t really music to my ears, but a trend is a trend, and you can always wear heels to minimize the dragging. But some celebs, such as Zoë Kravitz, are embracing the puddle and even wearing flats with it. Others, such as Kate Middleton and Rihanna, are wearing them with their highest heels. Whatever your shoe preference, puddle pants are shaping up to be one of the biggest trouser trends of 2022. Scroll on to see which stylish celebs are wearing, and shop my favourite puddly pairs.
