Ugly Harem Pants of the Day: Armand Basi One Mesh Harem Pants

Harem Shants

As harem pants go, these are far from the worst we’ve seen. In fact, in a Wear or Die type of situation, we may even find ourselves picking these over another pair of drop-crotches, purely because the “harem” part is made of mesh, and is therefore that little bit less noticeable than a regular ol’ saggy pant.

Why does the mesh overlay exist then? You may well ask. But we wouldn’t be able to answer, because we have no idea why you’d need a pair of pants with another pair of pants (albeit sheer ones) sewn over the top of them. We’d also have to disappoint you if you were hoping to buy these, because they’re currently sold out at ASOS.com, who were selling them for $170. Keep checking back, though – you never know your luck!

    At least in this one people can see that you haven’t actually crapped your pants!

    lol at Miriam’s comment!

    Perhaps here’s a situation where they’d come in useful: imagine you’re in a place where the mosquitoes both carry malaria and can bite through a thin layer of body hugging cloth (i.e. summer-weight leggings) – how to avoid bites without the use of repellant? The answer: equip your leggings with their own mosquito-nets (at the cost of looking rather silly).

    These would be great for an “I Dream of Jeannie” costume. 🙂

    Well at least they look a bit more like real harem pants, but I still prefer those used in bellydance, which are large down to the feet, avoiding the “big hips” effect.
