Harem Pants: Now available in leather By Marlene Birger

We thought harem pants were on the way out, but it would appear that they were only gathering strength before springing this on us. Seriously, leather harem pants? Sure, the fabric ones look bad, but at least all of that droopy material between your legs wouldn’t be uncomfortable. But leather. Acres of leather around the crotch just doesn’t sound like it would make for comfortable dressing, and it definitely doesn’t make for attractive dressing, so we have to ask: what’s the point?

Anyone like to hazard a guess? Or do you just want to buy them? If you do, they’re $840 at Shopbop: click here to buy.

    Ew. And did I say: EW! I just don’t get it.

    They look like something a kid would wear to go snowboarding or playing outside in the winter. Not a fashionable look here!

    This fearful trend must be stomped out before it takes over again!

    Harem Pants: Now available in latex. What’s the point?

    I absolutely hate harem pants especially those, but I went on holiday to Tokyo this year and i saw a girl wearing 3/4 harem pants with this really cute vest top and heels- she looked gorgeous! But then again those Tokyo girls wear just about anything and everything and STILL look good!

    Good lord, I’m pretty sure that this might be the first sign of the apocalypse. This and the fact that J Crew is marketing gold sequined harem pants in their fall catalogue. Just when you thought those monstrosities couldn’t look any more like either Aladdin’s pants or part of one of Blanche Devereux’s ensembles, J Crew slapped gold sequins all over them.
