Love It or Leave It: Jodhpurs for Fall

Jodhpurs, or what we think of as horseback-riding pants, are galloping into shops for fall.

Like the jodhpurs worn in and around the city in India after which they are named, modern interpretations of these trousers are similarly baggy around the thigh and tight-fitting through the calf.

We think the unique pants look pretty cool on models who prance like ponies down the runway...the question is: Will the silhouette they provide translate well for normal women?

If you decide to saddle-up to this trend, look for pants with smooth pockets placed on the front, rather than the sides. Avoid any other equestrian accessories. You'll also probably want to tuck in your top, so consider a belt and blazer or cropped jacket to balance the look.

What do you think? Will you rein in the jodhpur look for fall or leave it in the stable?
