Jennifer Lopez rocks harem pants

The harem pant may be better known as the updated “MC Hammer pant”.

This baggy fit is a notable trend this summer, in fabrics like satin, fleece, linen and more. They are characterized by having loose fabric at the crotch, thighs and behind, then usually getting tighter towards the calves.

Obviously one great feature is that they are comfortable – but can you pull off the look?

The best way to wear these is with a fitted top to stay away from looking like one big parachute, or in these type of jumper forms:

Also, pick a shape and fabric that drapes nicely and flatters your behind, because these pants can exaggerate that area in an undesirable way.

If you’re a bit wary about this trend, you could try a subtle version like these:

Ladies, have you been rocking harem pants, or can you see yourself giving them a shot?

  • Veronica says:

    I agree with Lee Lee, if your any kind of thick I don’t see it lookin right, cause if its too wide it’ll look Aladdin-ish…not flattering. I don’t even think I like the one’s J-lo has on but like i said before the one on the bottom model look good on her…
