So you’re still refusing to wear gaucho pants, huh? Well, would you do the black midi skirt in the outfit above? Because here’s the thing: you can’t tell until you’re up close—like, holding it in your hands up close—but it’s actually a pair of extra-wide leg culottes! And before you write the look off, remember: if I fooled you, no one at the office tomorrow will be able to tell! Give it a try and let me know how it goes (and I’ll try not to be smug in my rightness when you totally convert to team GP).
