Although its history dates back to 14th century England as a dress that was mainly worn by men, its fame escalated in the female wardrobe when we saw Olivia Newton-John use them in ‘Grease’. From there on came Madonna with their outfits more rockers in the 80s and, although in the 90s this trend lost steam due to the rise of baggy pants, the arrival of 2000 brought them back. Until today, where blends perfectly with athleisure.

It is true that its use generates a lot of controversy, mainly if they do not fit with the canons of body beauty that must be had (according to a few) to wear them, but the truth is that, like everything, there are a few rules to wear them, how the best dressed girls do it, at its best, and without missing your style.
