Harem Pants: A Do or a Don’t?


In my case its a don’t. Among my many obsessions – oversized bags, jodphurs, high waisted jeans..the list could go on – harem pants have never been one. In fact, they’ve always posed somewhat of a fashion dilemma for me. Admittedly there are some who can actually pull them off without looking like they belong in a circus (no, I’m not referring to MC Hammer) or even worse a music video from the early 90’s.

But there are others like Kelis (see image above) that honestly should just stay well away! I fall into the latter category. Like hats and jumpsuits, trousers with a crotch down to the knees just don’t agree with me.

If, by some stroke of luck you do wear this trend well then check out these harem-style pants by Rick Owens…they’re the only pair I could find that are easy on the eyes. $895 $671.25 available at net-a-porter.

If you’re in need of a laugh check out this find from the fashion police.
