Fashion Faux Pas: Harem Pants (Yes, AGAIN!!!)

Okay, a few years ago, I started seeing "harem pants" all over the place. Of course, my sass took over and I blogged about it. Multiple times.

Am I crazy??! Why are these pants so ridiculously trendy?? Why is everyone selling them? And why do they keep getting upgrades, like "funky" patterns and drawstring waistbands??

As far as I can see, these are just poorly-cut pajama pants.

I've said this about a million times, but here are the facts:

  • The cut of harem pants make everyone look at least 10 lbs heavier. Because there is so much excess fabric around the thigh area, and because they nip in at the ankles, they simply make it look like you have a huge ass as well as have some sort of crotch issue. Like a horrifying "front ass", or something of the like. Not cute.
  • No matter what "fancy" pattern you print them in, poorly cut pants will continue to have the same effect time and time again. The print actually makes it worse.
  • A drawstring waist?? Seriously? Do I need to explain this?

The only people who should be wearing something even remotely close to these stupid clown-esque pants are older women, who want something comfy to wear around the house. And I really want to stress it when I say around the house. Because even a senile 100-year-old lady has no business running to the store in a pair of these.

So spread the world, fellow fashionistas! I do NOT want to have to write about this again. It might get pretty violent.

That is all.

You know, Sassy (if that is your real name), it's beginning to seem as though, you are protesting too much! Almost as though you have a hidden desire to own and wear them. I can't remember any other time, that you have written about the same fashion faux pas more than once. Yet, in a matter of only months, you have written about these twice!! And each time put up well photographed ones, as though you had some of your own and were able to take hundreds of photos before putting up the best. I hate those pants more than most people, but I don't talk about them like this. I can tell you that I think one reason they made a big comeback is because of the obesity problem our country has. Even though ugly and unflattering, an overweight person would find them comfortable and feel a sense of security, because people would not be able to know exactly what size and shape was under there, hiding.....leaving people wondering what size that person was. I know that you are thin with a nice figure, BUT I ALSO KNOW YOU ARE SHORT!! Being 5' tall, these pants, on you would be a horror show, more so than on others. I have a degree in psychology on Fashion/Beauty advisors....and when it comes to these pants, the inner you, wants to, "Have her Sass, on the side".....* 2002 statement by R.M.
