The harem

Trending at the moment is the harem pant.  For those that don't know, the harem are baggy trousers that taper at the ankle.  They can be found in many varieties, plain, jersey, silk, sequinned, and even as a short.  They prove to be a comfy alternative to the legging, and can be worn both casually and smart.

The offer is vast on the high street at the moment, with retailers Topshop and River Island commercialising the style.  A popular option is the printed harem pant, worn in the day with a baggy T shirt, or at night with a fitted top and accessorized with a gold necklace.

Get the look here:

Harem pant available at Topshop £28

Frilled vest top available at River Island £24.99

Pendant £22
Buckle wedge £115
Both available at Urban Outfitters

The harem may not be to everybody's taste, but it is a winner for me.  What do you think?


  1. I would never have the confidence to walk around in these, my friends are far to judgemental for that! I do like them though :)

  2. I do like harem pants, I just think it's finding the right pair for you, I bought some recently, but I didn't like the style of that particular pair at all.
