Trend-Spotting: Tap Pants

Trend-Spotting, Tap Pants, fashion, fashion trends, lingerieI'm in a girly state of mind this week, so I was delighted to discover that tap pants have become one of the season's hottest trends. As the name may imply, tap pants originated from tap dancers who wore them while practicing their routines. And while they often fall into the same silhouette family as running shorts, they're definitely much sexier (just see the Only Hearts Last Rose of Summer Tap Pants, $52 at revolveclothing.com, above for proof). Check out some of my favorite takes on the trend after the jump.

  1. By any chance would any of these lovely items be purchased for your Cayman Islands trip?

    I'll let you have the Phillip Lim ones and I'll go for the Julianna Rae Le Soir Dream one. Actually, maybe you'll let me choose first since I've never been to the Cayman Islands--so that would be fair! x
