Harem Pants… Why?

In the process of writing a post about the best, most boring, and scariest trends this spring, I decided that harem pants deserve a small rant all their own. What is there to say about this baffling wanna-be addition to our closets? I mean, most of us are not six feet tall weighing in under 120 pounds—and if we were, harem pants still would not flatter, as evidenced by the lovely models trying so hard in the photo at far right. Where does that leave the average 5’4” woman? At one chain clothing store, I decided to find out. Please see exhibits A, B, and—most damning—C.

Um… yeah. Let this serve as a perfect example of one trend that’s born to die.

What about you? What’s your most-hated trend this spring?



Oh, you should. Anyone who wants to feel slapped in the face should try on these strange beasts. FYI, while I had the pants on I couldn’t help dancing around like an idiot in the dressing room; I endured the most vicious toe-stubbing in the process. My fault? Or the pants’? You decide. 😊
