Are you bored of the same old denim? Then it’s time to move them over and say hello to the paper-bag pants trend! Although it may seem a bit harder to style them compared to the versatile skinny jeans, there are loads of reasons why you should wear this style of trousers. They accentuate your waist and give your legs a long, slender appearance. Who doesn’t want that, right?
Here are 6 paper-bag pants outfit ideas that will make you give them a second glance…
