Harem pants have been quite popular this summer. You can find them in almost every chain store to most department stores and even in some designer lines. For instance, the Catherine Malandrino spring 2014 ready-to-wear show was all about the harem pant. These are the must-have pants for the summer months right now. The harem style pants that are seen in the collection are a very dramatic version, but there are also more subdued ones where the dropped crotch isn’t so extreme. I really love how these are such a fun statement pant that are very adaptable as well. The fabric used for the pants can dictate the look. A silk pant creates a more dressed up look, whereas some cotton ones would be more casual.
I decided to try out this edgy and trendy harem pant look this week. Mine are navy blue and white printed ones from H&M. They are not as dramatic as the ones in the collection, but I think they are a great alternative for anyone worried that they can’t pull off this style. I paired them with an easy, loose-fitting tank top. The orange and blue complementary color-blocking is actually my favorite part of this outfit. On my feet, I’m wearing my black strappy heeled sandals that I have been wearing out this summer! For accessories, I went with a statement necklace that has colorful kidney shaped paisley designs. I thought it went really nice with the aesthetic of the outfit; plus, it’s really just a fantastic necklace. Am I right? Lastly, I finished the look off with an Elsa-inspired braid in my hair because who doesn’t want to be a Disney princess?
The harem pant is the perfect piece to have this summer. I also can see these pants lasting into the fall. They can be paired with a chic leather jacket, some ankle booties and an infinity scarf for that brisk fall vibe I am so looking forward to. For now, try rocking these harem pants in the summer months like I did. I promise you won’t regret it!
