While we can all appreciate a quality pair of leggings or skinny jeans, it’s spring and time for free and flowy clothes. Harem pants, which are lightweight, figure flattering and comfortable, are a trend to master this upcoming spring and summer. This Fashionista accompanies her patterned pair of harem pants with a simple V-neck and a white denim jacket. As as the weather warms up, a crop top or a pair of strappy sandals would nicely complement this bohemian-inspired outfit.
Name: Maddie Hidalgo
Major: Business Administration and Spanish
CollegeFashionista: Tell me about what you are wearing.
Maddie Hidalgo: I am wearing a pair of harem pants from Urban Outfitters, a black V-neck T-shirt I picked up at a thrift shop, a white jean jacket from T.J.Maxx and a pair of gray canvas TOMS shoes.
CF: How would you describe your style?
MH: I like to have fun and change up my style from day to day. Some days I dress preppy while other days I like to be more boho. I think the whole point of fashion is feeling good about yourself and knowing the body you have. On a college budget, it’s hard. I like to take basics items, like a denim jacket, and pair them with different things to mix it up.
CF: What inspires your style choices and why?
MH: My friends really inspire me because they all have such different styles.
CF: What is one item that every wardrobe should include?
MH: In my opinion, every wardrobe should include a black leather jacket for the colder seasons and a denim jacket for the warmer months.
How To: First, start by getting yourself a pair of harem pants like this black and white patterned pair from Forever 21. Keep the boho feel with this loose, cropped tank top from Express and a pair of T-strap sandals, like this pair from Aldo. Add a denim jacket like this white one from Lucky Brand Jeans and you’ll be comfortable and ready for any spring or summer day.
