OA: Pollux Column April 17, 2009
As a child of the ’80s, it is with great trepidation that I must report that, yes, harem pants are back.
For those of you who don’t remember MC Hammer, let me explain harem pants. Simply put, these pants are baggy on the top and tight around the ankles.
Although they sound intimidating, they can be quite cute when worn correctly.
First, choose a pair that drapes well and conceals flaws. Second, wear a belt to accentuate the waist and show off curves.
Finally, take a friend, mother or trusted person with you when selecting harem pants.
This is a tricky fashion purchase and you need a second opinion.
Harem pants are not for everyone, but they are on the cutting-edge of fashion this season.
