I've always heard that fashion is cyclical and sadly today that fact proved itself on the Baby Gap website.  I was on there hoping to find some cute things for E when I came across this...

No one.  Not anyone ever.  Who is not riding a horse.  Should wear stirrup pants.  Particularly not an unsuspecting child who doesn't appreciate the disaster that was 80s fashion.  My mother put me in them and I look back in those pictures in horror.  Please do not do this to your child.  Some things need to stay in the past and this is one of them.  :)


  1. I agree when it comes to the stirrups over the socks with flats look that we had BUT...stirrup pants are AWESOME with boots because the pant legs don't ride up. Just sayin'. :)

    2. I agree that they are okay if people don't know you are wearing stirrup pants like with boots but I am just imaging the stirrup pants with flats look we sported back in the day. It looks like we wore the same thing. Stirrup pants with those flats with the big bows on them. Oh the horror. I agree with you they are okay with boots!

  2. HA! I absolutely rocked these in middle school, paired with oversized sweaters. So awful!
