Harem pants were the biggest fashion crime of 2009: official!

 

At the end of last year, we asked you what, in your opinion, was the biggest fashion crime of 2009. And your answer?

Harem pants!

Yes, harem pants may have filled the stores in 2009 (and are now filling the sales racks, funnily enough), but the dreaded dropped crotch found few fans at here at The Fashion Police: over 1,100 people voted in our poll, with harem pants polling 39.8% of the vote.

The past two year’s winners, Crocs, still aren’t popular with our readers, however: they came second, with 21.8%, while clothing inspired by Lady Gaga was in third place, with 9.1%.

You’ll find the results in full under the jump. Thanks to everyone who voted: may 2010 be a year in which crotches remain in their proper place!

    It seems that according to Vogue, the new ‘hot’ trend is genie pants, which are the same as harem pants, really… the only difference is that the crotch is not as low. Guess we’ll be seing these babies this year as well!

    I don’t know why jeggings were included in this poll…. They are fab for those of us who can wear the skinny (and I mean, SUPER skinny) leg. However, I think it is great that harem pants were voted the most eughh thingy of the year. They make everyone look bad!

      They were included because every time they’ve been mentioned here, we’ve had lots of comments from people saying they hate them. Clearly there are a lot of different opinions out there 🙂

    I admit to voting for Lady GaGa because she sort of is an all incompassing entity with her wearing of almost al the horrible fashion mentione din the poll.
