Last week in my Torrid Dressing Room Diary, I mentioned that I can’t pull off everything and I’m okay with that. Not every fashion trend is for me; a good example is fur vests. I put on too much fur and I just look like a muppet who escaped from the streets of sesame.
But anyway, even though I’m fine to say when a trend isn’t for me, I’m also never ever afraid to try a trend. So, today I’m trying out Harem pants. I wasn’t convinced these would look good on me, but… I’m actually into them!
When it came to harem pants I followed three specific rules:
Keep it Simple:
These pants are a statement in themselves, so for my fist pair I didn’t choose a crazy print or a bright color. I went with denim, which feels neutral for me since I knew I could pair with any top/shoe and be fine.
Grab a form fitting top:
Because my pants have a high waist, I found that crop tops or blouses that tucked in easily without bunching were best. This top is from my plus size ankara print set, I thought the pop of print and color was a fun combination.
Don’t spend too much
I got these on a (rare) sale from Jibri, but I wouldn’t suggest starting off with a $150 pair of pants.
Here are some cute options that are budget friendly:
So, what’s the verdict on harem pants? Love ’em, hate ’em… dying to try them? Let me know in the comments!
