Diane Von Furstenberg ‘Kali’ harem pants: can also be worn as a dress

Dvf-harem-pants

It's not the fact that they're harem pants. It's not even the fact that they're harem-pants-that-can-also-be-worn-as-a-dress.

No, it's the fact that they're harem-pants-that-can-also-be-worn-as-as-dress that the Golden Girls would wear. If, of course, The Golden Girls, God bless them, had ever decided to wear such a thing.

That's what qualifies these as a crime of fashion in our book.

If you disagree, you can buy yourself a pair for $245 from Shopbop

    I have to recognize I don’t like them as harem pants, but -though I’d never wear them and knowing what you can find out there- they don’t look that bad to me as a dress/jumpsuit.

    I can definitely see Blanche wearing a dress in this fabric, but no Golden Girl would deign to wear harem pants.

    I think a good portion of the things seen on this website that are deemed “ugly” are truly ugly. But the the harem pants, which I heard about for the first time on this website, was deemed “ugly”, but lately I’ve been seeing them in a few magazines and they are not that bad. This particular one isn’t that awful – it has a really nice print and I prefer the version of it worn as a dress. It could also work with a nice fitted black blazer for an evening look,too.

    The model is literally wearing a droopy sack with leg holes. I’ve seen the skirt/dress combo before but with harem pants? Please stop them.

    Its actually not too bad as a dress, maybe for throwing on at the beach or something.
    But as pants, oh god no!

    I like harem pants, as well as the print, but I don’t think they look good with that smocking at the top. It just looks a little wierd to me.
