After 10,000 years, Beatrilicious is back in contributing something to Askmewhats! I had so many things to share, so many thoughts in my mind I wanted to share for so long but I didn't have the time to sit and organize it all! But hey, it's better late than never, right?
Harem pants is like the MC Hammer pants we all knew back in the 90's. Just a trivia, MC Hammer was a famous rapper in the early 90's. I think he was a contemporary of Vanilla Ice, who popularized the infamous Ice Ice Baby! hahaha But if you aren't familiar with it, you can just imagine Princess Jasmine's outfit in the Disney animated movie Aladdin. It is often defined as "baggy pants which goes fitted at the ankle area, with side flaps on the hip that button at the waiste area". But this trend is taking a different direction now compared as seen in the Spring/Summer and Fall 2009 runway collections of several designers. Some celebrities have been caught with this trend. Are you brave enough to join the harem bandwagon?
Here are some tips in wearing harem pants should you decide to embrace the trend:
- Don't wear it with flats. It's best to wear them if you have gladiator heels or chunky heels.
- Don't pair it with a busy top such as those with ribbons, ruffles, etc. Stick to a basic and plain one because the attention has to be with the harem pants.
- Keep the top fitted to achieve a balanced look and to make it flattering.

Some really can’t stand this trend and find it weird
while some can see themselves wearing one.
So the million dollar question is:
To wear or not to wear?
