Trend To Try: Harem Pants

Harem pants are the latest pant trend, and they are giving skinny jeans a run for their money! This favorite spring runway trouser can be hard to style but we will walk you through some of the basics so you pull off the look without looking like “I Dream of Jeannie”.

We stalked some of our favorite fashionistas from chictopia.com and complied are top 7 looks that are easy for any gal to try!

Here are 3 rules to pulling of a good harem pant:

1) The Tuck – Don’t be afraid to tuck your shirt in. A long shirt over loose pants just looks sloppy, so you’re going to need to pair with a shorter top that will tuck just right.
2) Structurally Sound – Balance is key here, so its a great idea to wear a structured neutral blazer to add that “Don’t eff with me in these pants” look you’re going for.
3) ┬áDon’t Forget The Feet – Shoes will complete the look so think about the overall feel your harem pant is giving you, if you want sophistication, a pointy-toed pump is your gal. Sandals or ankle-strap heels will make it a bit more casual and approachable. If you want to be approached.
