I feel a “what was I thinking?!” fashion moment coming on, but I really want a pair of harem pants. An item such as harem pants is the true test of style, because they can be very right, or very, very, VERY wrong. I don’t want to be compared to MC Hammer, or have anyone wonder if I’m wearing a diaper.
I think my happy medium lies in the new style of “paper bag” trousers, that are wider (but not too wide) through the thigh, skinnier at the ankle, and usually have a high waist or belt to make them look pulled together and not schlumpy. Urban Outfitters came through for me once again with these trousers by Robert Rodriguez.
Fashion Bonus: They’ll show off my shoes!
