Cheap but not chic: Boohoo Millie distressed harem jean

millie distressed harem jean boohoo

Mom waistband? Check. Saggy crotch? Check. Baggy knees? Check. Elasticated ankles? Check. It’s like a veritable what’s what of fashion crimes in here!

But seriously, folks, can these jeans even be comfortable. I mean, the baggy, diaper-crotch on harem pants is unattractive, yes, but we’re assured that the comfort factor makes up for the aesthetic limitations. Where denim is concerned we’re looking at a far stiffer fabric – more likely, surely to crease into folds and dig in. And the idea of elasticated denim digging in around the ankles? Does NOT appeal ONE BIT!

In their favour, these jeans certainly do not fall into the “daylight robbery” category – at least they have a realistic sense of their own value…

Perhaps you can see the appeal of this interesting addition to the denim collective. If so you can pick them up for the bargain price of £25 at Boohoo.com.

    These are, without a doubt, one of the most ridiculous pairs of harem jeans I’ve ever seen. And I’ve seen a LOT of harem jeans…

    Must be the ugliest jeans I’ve ever seen, and I grew up in the 70s, so I’m an expert!

    Never mind a sex change, I think there’s room for a small colony in these babies!! With the added bonus that, thanks to the elasticated ankles, nothing can fall out!

    Oh, I GET it now – these are pants for theives!
