Harem Pants,the latest trend for Summer-09?
This is really the best pant ever, comfortable and luxy looking with a pair of high heels, or cozy as a Sunday wear with leather sandals (roman look is great with harem). Remember to wear harems with something tight on top and then perhaps play around with an over-sized shirt 'un-buttoned' on top, but to create a high waist it's a good idea to use a linen top underneath combined with something wide.
Harems a simply combat slick looking, loose-fitted and fun, I found some great ones with new details, also spotted some 3/4 pants with buttons which I adore. Be aware for the Harems in a to thin stretchy cotton-spandex type=more known as Alibab-not hot, the cheap version.
If your going for this 'harem style' please use a pair that either has a glam look a la Ralph Laurens glitter gold style ones or a heavier cotton looking like a khaki pant picks on top, or with details like wood buttons and in a washed look. Not the stretchy ones, that will only create a 'jelly, wobbly' style and not that hot. All and all, harem is a re-run worth a third, fourth, fifth? chance. From belly dancing to the rapping MC Hammer-big in the 80's the pant is now hotter than ever. I welcome it and love it and wear it..here is some inspiring picks.
Best look spotted: Wear Harem Pants with a Blazer, Tuxedo Jacket (rolled up sleeves)
The right chique look with harem pants combined with a blazer, great to make the pants more fancy rather than baggy. This picture is found at Bergdorfgoodman.com, Personally I don't really rate the pants, I would like them to have a tighter fit around the legs and not that well shaped but the blazer/jacket is a real 'must have' and the combination of the jkt and pants are great.
All the best! Alice (Have any style tips or photos? share them here at Hot Cake, just go to: contact me page for questions ore requests)or leave a comment on/in any Blog.
