    I know it's not new but The Harem Pants are in almost every collection in S/S 2010, At least in New York Fashion Week.

    I like the ones at Helmut Lang, I'm thinking of buying some Harem pants, they look so comfy.

    the variety here really kind of links a bunch of trends -- the harem, the drop-crotch, the high-waist, pleat-fronts -- and i think the real larger trend emerging here is playing with the fit of pants at the waist + hip....

    i've been trying to figure out how best to wear it... i'm extremely hip-py and it's going to be hard to find a pair that works with that without making it exaggerated in a bad way. i kind of loved the slightly reverse-fit cropped tweed pants at steven alan now as a more subtle way to do this: http://www.stevenalan.com/pages.php?pageid=11&gender=womens#/4

    especially paired with the red tights... i think paired with some lace socks/tights, clunky sandals or pumps or lace-up-boots, and a blazer a la rag+bone up there this could work quite well.

    karla from karla's closet also rocks the harem-style pants constantly and pulls it off nicely.

    i don't know....i am bit slow to accept new trends.
    this kind of pants do make the models seem they have shorter legs...certain cuts are better than the others....

    I have a pair of harem-ish pants from a seller on etsy, though they are more like the pants the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) wear. I'm kind of struggling how to wear them though with my frame because they are so slim on my caves and then so bulky around my hips/thighs. I feel like the cut (of my particular pants) works better on taller people because they can use the excess fabric as pockets, but it's too low on me. Maybe with my slouchy boyfriend blazer it will cut down on the overall bulkiness.

    Oh, those sound difficult. Maybe a short, wide jacket would balance out the bulkiness without literally weighing on top of it; I'm thinking the fabric might be too heavy for a blazer to sit comfortably over the excess, but you'd know better than I. My own harem pants are made from a very thin material, rayon or something, I can't remember. They're fairly easy to wear, but more casual.

    Well mine are from cotton so the side bits (that look like military pants) are a bit floppy so I think a blazer could comfortably sit on top. I worry that a shorter blazer would only accentuate the odd proportions - and not in a good way.

    ^^ sounds like a wide-necked drapey/silky/thin blouse might work well, tucked in if the pants fit high and with a slim belt maybe -- you keep the hourglass silouhette but then the drapier fabric should tone down the bulk...and with a pair of uber-high strappy sandals? a+.

    if the pants are super-bulky i feel like the blazer might just add unecessary weight and i think a lighter and more feminine top can create an interesting contrast, like in the yigal and preen styles above. the blazers work with rag and bone but those are a bit more drop-crotch and less harem-y, and i think the thinner shirts pair better with the pants that have extra hip-bulk.

    I have to admit, I really don't like harem pants. I tried to like them :D but.. uh. I feel like they look bad on any body type.. even models look bad in 'em, it makes their hips look huge :huh:
