STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Happy in Harem Pants

If I had to name one thing I disliked about fall fashions, it would be planning outfits around the same old pair of jeans. This season, however, has given us more options with trends such as colored denim, wide-legged, high waisted and harem style pants. Today’s Fashionista transitions into fall with her neutral colors and her trendy harem pants.

Harem pants have been seen in runway collections of designers such as Givenchy, L.A.M.B. and Michael Kors. While some of you may be thinking that harem pants were only made with runway models in mind, today’s Fashionista shows us how versatile they are for wearing on a college campus.

By pairing her pants with a belt, this Fashionista accentuates the high waist and long inseam of harlequin pants. The braided leather belt, similar to this one by Ralph Lauren, also pulls in her brown combat boots. In order to take the harem pants from day to night- swap out your combat boots for heels and add a statement necklace.

It’s important to remember to not get carried away when you’re trying out a trend as unique as harem pants. The shape and texture of the pants make the outfit, so opt for a simple, loose fitting shirt. Today’s Fashionista pairs her Forever 21 harem pants with an off the shoulder white top. Neutral colors allow the distinct shape of the harem pants to blend into a cohesive outfit.

While harem pants may not be for everyone, the concept behind can inspire you to reach out of your comfort zone this fall.
