This will shock you, but...I kind of like harem pants. They're huge this season. All the fashion magazines say we must have them, while all the fashion critics cry "Hammer Time!" Despite any of that, I think they just may be the pant solution I've been looking for as the worst fit is in my thighs. With harem pants, the thighs are loose and draped. No more tears on bloated days. No more pulling down my trousers when I stand after a long period in a chair. If you style them with understated basics and a structured jacket, like the Polyvorians below did, they they are quite wearable and flattering.
