The Harem Pant

AHA! I have been challenged again - the harem pant. Definitely not for everyone, and if you are bit more on the conservative side, you may not want to venture this far out. With that said - I think the looks, that I put together, most could duplicate and look FLY in it. 

DISCLAIMER: No there isn't a look for the office, unless you are in a creative field (and anything goes as far as clothing), I don't think harem pants are appropriate. Even with a blazer (lol) Imagine that?

Some of these looks are totally not cheap - however, there is always a more inexpensive alternative. For me, I like to pair expensive items, with not so expensive items. You don't have to come out dressed in labels from head to toe to be fly, and you don't have to penny pinch and not be fly.

Style in the City - Ok so this is a chill mode outfit, if you are unsure about the harem pant look on you, the perfect way to try a trend is to do a casual look first. 1st of all its comfortable, which will allow YOU to be more comfortable, and that always pulls off a look. Quirky fun graphic tee's are a perfect way to start on building this look, add a colorful tote,funky accessories and some shades (shades are key, you can actually make an entire look on sunglasses alone) and there you have it.

Up in the DA CLUB - This look is definitely for those more on the edgier/trendier side of fashion. Its cute, and fun and you definitely need the right attitude to pull this off. Don't be afraid to add color, just imagine how completely different this look would be if it was in all shades on black and grey? BORING!
