…Pant Revolution! If you think that this trend is not for you, you are not alone. Nothing has polarized the fashion community more than the re-emergence of these rather bizarre pants. I personally struggled with them from the moment they appeared on the fashion scene. But what is fashion if it doesn’t push boundaries? Season after season, I wondered why these pants kept making a comeback…until I purchased my very first pair.
Now, I am a proud owner of two gorgeous pairs of harem pants as well as a playful and flirty harem pant jumper. If you are feeling a bit frisky and are itching to try something new, there are many options to choose from. Don’t fight this trend because it isn’t going away any time soon. In fact, Spring 2011 Collections were flooded with some of the most truly magnificent versions of the harem pant and the more affordable designs can be found everywhere. You just have to find the pair that is right for you. For those of you who still can’t envision what you might look like rocking this exotic style, check out some great outfits I picked out.
How To Wear Them
The key to pulling the harem pant off is by keeping things simple and letting the pants do all the talking. Wear them with a cropped jacket or a t-shirt and be sure to pair your harem pants with fabulous heels. They look great with pumps, strappy shoes and even booties. These pants tend to look better on slimmer taller women but this doesn’t mean that shorter girls should not attempt this look. Depending on the fabric and the style of the pants, both tall and short women alike can and should try them on for size.
What makes these pants different from all others is that they start off like a skirt and go on to hug your legs at the bottom. Also, you should know that there are different kinds of harem pants. Shorter women should try them in a full length version like the ones in the pictures of Rihanna, Christina Milian and Ciara. These celebrities are not super model tall, but look fabulous in harem pants and so can you. Harem pants also come full or tapered. The ones you choose depends on your personal taste. But if you are on a shorter side, always, always, always wear them with your highest heels. My personal favorite are harem pants that have pockets. They have a loose and flowy fit, but keep you looking chic and sexy at the same time.
Fun Colors and Fabrics
In the past few years, the harem pant has undergone a bit of a transformation. This is good news, trust me. Harem pants are now available in amazing metallics, covered in sequins, in vibrant new colors and in gorgeous lush wools. They are stylish and comfy and are waiting for you to click and buy them. But before you do, I suggest you try them on to see how they fit and feel on you. Enjoy the pictures and get inspired.
