Fun, flirty and functional, these hikers are fit for walking, lounging, and shimmying your way down almost any path you choose. Inspired by the Bloomer which was a symbol of women’s rights in the 1850s and which paved the way for metaphorical and literal freedom, this updated version comes with a flat fronted waistband, hitched at the sides for a flattering silhouette. The four button closure means it can be worn high or low, teamed with heels and a snazzy top for the evenings or a slouchy top and casual kicks for every day use.
