Default What's the deal with gauchos???

Is anyone into gauchos? They look soooo cute on the models (of course)! They make me look very "hip-py"! Are there different variations of gauchos to flatter different figures?

Google gaucho pants and you'll get more results. They are like wide leg pants that are cut off just below the knee. I strongly dislike them

Are they actually calling them gauchos? I had a brain twitch when I saw what was now a "capri"

I will never wear gauchos. Horrible idea for me! I like skirts, I like trousers, so thought these might be OK. I'm obviously not slim, but I like to wear slimming styles. Not Gauchos!

I think capris are tapered, and gauchos are wide-legged (and quite ugly, in my opinion, especially on me). Ewww.

Hahaha thanks for enlightening me as to what a gaucho is... Now that I'm seeing them, I'm not a fan. But then again I'm not really big on capris.

They're back in?!?! Uh oh, time for me to call mom and spread the news. That woman's been into gauchos since she turned to Christianity (the kind that believes women should always wear dresses) when I was 13. She can't seem to find them anymore though and has been wearing the same ones for years.

The verdict is in! I find gauchos guilty of not being very flattering! I wonder what the next fashion trend will be? While I'm on the subject of fashion, I just want to say that if I see another sequined bag or those sequined ballerina flats (shoes), I'm going to vomit! With everyone here wearing all that shiny, shimmer, bling-bling is enough to cause an epileptic seizure!!!

I'd rather those than low riders. OMG. Who forgot that at least 1/2 the population, if not more, have BELLIES that hang out of them. Can you find regular pants. Not really.

I thought I was the only one that looks horrible in gauchos. At 5'4" they make me look much shorter and than I am. I do like the flowing aspect, but I think they might be better suited for very tall and very slim women.
