While her sartorial cachet is no longer what it used to be, Lindsay Lohan’s court appearances still serve to send the blogosphere and morning talk show circuit into a sartorial tizzy — though nothing even remotely comparable to what an image of Kate Middleton breathing fresh air can cause. And today, on this good Friday, Lohan strode purposefully into the Los Angeles County Courthouse for a preliminary hearing in her felony grand theft trial wearing a pair of high-waisted sailor pants.
Are high-waisted sailor pants really a thing? We know flares and wide-legged trousers are getting considerable play and everyone is all about the ’70s. But ever since Jessica Simpson wore those (honestly, pretty darn similar) high-waisted chambray-looking slacks, we’ve just assumed that everyone knew to stay away.
But, overall and somewhat disappointingly, Lohan looks fine. Where’s Naomi Campbell when you need her?
