How the Hell Do I Wear That!?! Harem Pants

While pants have slowly been mounting a comeback the past few seasons, they’ve finally reached saturation point for SS2009. The most intriguing trend to come out of the look is harem pants…

Potential Humiliation: 9/10. Hammer time?

How to Triumph: Pair luxe fabrics with otherwise streamlined pieces.
– Keep accessories (including hair & makeup) super minimalist & simple.
– Stay as far away from pattern as possible (see aforementioned MC Hammer reference).
– Always pair this look with heels — the potential frump factor here is HUGE.
– Buy the pants in a fabric that has good flow — movement is crucial here.
– Note that this item dresses up/down really easily — a major plus!
