Harem pants are making a major come back this year as evidenced by the number of people sporting the look. And by "people sporting the look", I don't mean regular people. I mean big stars like Gwen Stefani, Justin Bieber, Jessica Alba, Kourtney Kardashian and more. Unfortunately, not even all these stars with well-known stylist always ace the perfect look with these type of pants. Some miss the mark while some were very spot-on. |
So what the best way to wear the harem pants? Or simply known as baggy pants looks a lot like the pants worn by Aladdin. So obviously, it's a very tricky piece of clothing to wear. However, more designs of these pants are readily available in malls and boutiques and these types of are easier to style.
So what should you pair with it so that you can ace the look without looking like Aladdin in the fairy tale? Here are some tips:
1. Pair it with a body hugging top. Because harem pants are already loose fitting, you should balance it out by wearing a body hugging top, like a camisole, to emphasize the shape of your upper body.
2. Cinch it in the waist. To accentuate the curve of your body, always make sure that the waistband of your the pants is cinch at the smallest part of your waist and not on the hips. You can use a belt to emphasize your small waist further. Some already have a design in the waistband to emphasize the waist, so a belt won't be necessary in this case.
3. Tuck your top in all the time. Some people who call themselves "fashion risk-takers" try to deviate from the basic and pair their baggy pants with an equally baggy top. That is definitely not suggested as it will make you look like a homeless person wearing other people's clothes. If you really want to deviate from the basic rule a little, you can use a loose-fitting top but you should always tuck it in.
4. Use high-heeled shoes with it. Stiletto shoes or sandals are preferable and try to stay away from chunky heels. A simple stiletto shoes will not take away the focus of your outfit from the pants. It will also make you look elegant in spite of the baggy pants.
Reminder to readers though, harem pants suits women with slender lower half. Though as I have mentioned above, there are a lot of variety in design to this type of pants nowadays so if you feel like you don't have a slender lower half, choose the kind that doesn't use a soft cloth. Try wearing it in denim instead and always remember to emphasize your waist.
