MODEL CITIZEN spots UFO pants…making a comeback?

MODEL CITIZEN was perusing Facebook the other day and connected with our Teen Style Spy Nina Starr to get the scoop on what’s hot among the high school crowd. Believe it or not, the rave scene is still alive and well and so is the rave style. UFO pants are coming back in a major way among the teen raver crowd. If you were born in the late 80’s or 90’s you KNOW how trendy these pants were. An www.UrbanDictionary.com user quotes them as “The best pants in the world. The are light as a feather, they dry fast if you spill something on them, they don’t wrinkle, they are easy to get in any size and are very adjustable, they come in almost every color, they have buttons on the pockets so your stuff doesn’t fall out when you sit down, and they’re the most comfortable pants ever. They fit snuggly around the waist and the legs are wide without looking like hakama pants (those dress-looking pants that you see martial artists wear sometimes)”.

MODEL CITIZEN doesn’t know if she’s ready to rock a pair of UFOs just yet, but Nina Star is all ready to buy pairs in her favorite colors. Her teen crowd loves the baggy, comfortable look of them. In almost any shade her little heart desires! (which is usually a lot.) UFOs come in an unusually wide variety of colors and patterns – and she says you don’t have to be a raver to wear them. The girls she’s seen wearing them pair them with everything from string bikini tops to bandeaus to tanks or band tees. If they’re not available at your local mall, she says you should try one or more of the following sites (depending availability of the size/color you’re looking for):

www.bewild.com
www.beatdropscloset.com
www.raveready.com
www.bcheap.com
www.goneblue.com

We suggest www.raveready.com because they have the most interesting styles and colors. Also, www.bewild.com is one of your best bets.

What do you think? Would you rock the rave style?
