You CAN touch this





You CAN touch harem pants. And why shouldn't you? If done right, harem pants can be quite stylish. Not to mention damn comfortable.

Just some things to keep in mind, always in my humble opinion:
  1. The longer they are, the better. Most harem styles are cropped and reach mid-calf. Look for harem pants that skim your ankles, for a more flattering look.
  2. Harem style doesn't necessarily mean looking like you pooped in your pants. Try to find a style where the crotch *slightly" dropped . A crotch that reaches your knees can't possibly be a flattering look.
  3. Keep them black, grey or any other darkish, neutral colour. Harem pants in bright orange is just looking for trouble.
  4. Adding a belt will help make them look a bit more trouser-like.

Black harem pants, PULL&BEAR. Grey t-shirt, ZARA. Grey scarf, ZARA. Mustard-yellow cardigan, PULL&BEAR. Belt, ZARA. Bead necklace, H&M. Purple flats, OYSHO.

sorry lopi, but it's one of the rare pieces I genuinely dislike.
Still, you've done a great job putting this outfit together (not to mention your helpful advice) and although I like the way you look, I’d never try it myself !

ti cute shoes...!!! I love them... they fit the mustard cardigan so perfectly...!!! however I like harem pants which are tighter around the ankles, and a bit shorter...!!!

I saw some harem pants at Target last week and almost got them. I haven't taken the plunge yet. I like how you paired them though! Fantastic blog! You have a new follower!
