The Harem Jumpsuit: it’s here


Well, it had to happen sooner or later, didn’t it? God knows, if fashion designers can put Crocs and Uggs together, they can damn well put harem pants and jumpsuits together too, can’t they? Just because you CAN do something, though, it doesn’t necessarily follow that you SHOULD do it, and we would argue that the harem jumpsuit is one idea that should have been left on the drawing board. This little beauty is from ASOS, and we think the back view is particularly, um, interesting. Just look at the butt pouch hanging off the back of that thing! Think of all the things you could store in it, like… actually, let’s not go there. Let’s just sit back for a moment and bask in the knowledge that if we ever want to look like our crotches extend to somewhere not far above our knees, and our backsides are so droopy we could tie knots in them, we’ll know where to go.

(Thanks to Lil for the report!)

Your regular harem pant hit, courtesy of La Redoute

Harem_pants As The Fashion Police were imbibing our first drops of caffeine this morning, and checking up on the fashion criminals currently in our cells, it suddenly occurred to us that hey, it’s been at least a couple of weeks since we last compared harem pants to diapers and illustrated our point with a picture of a woman looking like she needs to get to a bathroom fast.

Well, we couldn’t possibly allow harem pants to get off scott free all month, so here you go: La Redoute’s harem pants, on sale for $12.99.

And another pair of low-crotch pants join the section of the Fashion Police jail built just for them

    The back view kinda looks like my baby does when he’s got a full nappy. Sorry for the graphic image, but that’s the way I see it – eeew!

    Is it just me, or does it look as though she has a cowl-neck dress on UPSIDE-DOWN?
