Rethinking the Harem Pants Trend

Publish date:

Going to fashion school has opened my eyes to many trends I hadn't considered wearing before. When harem pants first became popular, I thought (as most of us did at CF) that the fad was hideous and unflattering. After all, who would want to wear saggy pants?

But now that I attend FIDM, I've realized that harem pants can definitely work for college girls. When worn with wedges or heels, they make your legs look mile-long. They also look amazing with a fitted top that shows off your figure and a cute cropped jacket. When wearing these pants, just be sure to keep the rest of your outfit simple; you don't want your accessories and jewelry to make you look like a genie.

Harem pants are the fashionista's version of sweatpants. Although I hated these at first, I now know they are incredibly comfortable yet still edgy and stylish.

Still not convinced? Here is how I would wear harem pants...

Overall, I think there are many girls who can really pull this trend off well. Of course, there are also times it can look really, really bad. After all, who wants MC Hammer to come to mind when you walk down the street? So long as you stick to the tips above, however, I promise it's possible to make this trend work.
