The key is "which" trends of the world. Some are good some are bad. There must be discernment.

Modesty would prohibit women wearing pants to the extent they cling to the buttocks, etc. revealing. Also, to ignore the fact that this phenomenon came out of a spirit of rebellion, liberalism, and feminism, to reinforce the idea of interchangeability of the sexes, the practice should be looked on with, at the least, suspicipon. I would think the opposite spirit would want to be reinforced by Catholics. Namely, drawing clear lines between men and women in dress. That this is so strongly protested against by some Catholics, to me reveals their sharing, at least in part, in the feminist interchangability of men and women in dress. I think they fail to appreciate the message it sends beyond the mere fabric. The feminists and enemies of the Church wouldn't have bothered to try so terribly hard to change the fashion if it wasn't effective in supporting their agenda.

Is women wearing pants intrinsically wrong? If they are tight and reveal the figure or are too low cut, yes. In our culture and age it would be better that women wear more feminine clothes to reinforce the Catholic distinction between masculine and feminine. However, if a woman wears pants that are modest and fairly loose fitting, and styled for women, I don't think it would be intrinsically wrong, although I would say not the best course. Jeans and pants are simply not as feminine as dresses and skirts. Why blur the line and reinforce bad elements of our culture?

The fact that women in other cultures wear grass skirts and coconut bras and are considered to be modest, has no bearing in our time and culture. Likewise, because some women 100's of years ago wore pants somewhere, does not make them feminine, per se, in 2009 Western Culture. Because a guy wears a kilt in Scotland and it is considered masculine there, doesn't mean men can show up for Mass in a skirt in the US. This line of historical and cultural counterexample is simply foolish although consistently repeated in discussion as if it is somehow relevant.
