Ah, our old nemesis, the harem pant, now with added frills: now there’s a sight we could’ve happily lived without!
Actually, we never thought we’d hear ourselves say this, but the dropped crotch on these is actually the least of our worries. No, we’re more concerned by the fact that they appear to be cargo pants to the knee, and then leggings from the knee down. So, basically, we’re looking at a bizarre, three-way hybrid: harem-pant-meets-cargo-pant-meets-leggings. Now, why in the world would you want to do that, we wonder? (Although, come to think of it, the “legging” part would make them perfect for wearing with long boots. We’re using the word “perfect” as a relative term here, you understand…)
Personally we’ve never found ourselves staring into our open closets, thinking, “Damn, I wish someone would come up with a pair of trousers that were both harem pants AND leggings AND cargo pants”, but if you’ve ever faced just that dilemma, your wishes have been answered by Kookai, who’re selling these ones for £82 via ASOS.
