Harem pants have been gaining plenty of attention lately, so if you’re sporting one then you’re bang on trend. Originally worn by women or the harem, a literal translation for women (Arabic), in the ancient Arabian Penninsula, the harem pant has been a part of many cultures that still exist today. Pakistani Shalwars and other South Asian traditional attire have continued to fashionably embrace the trend, making it a remarkable cultural association.
The pants are loose and are seen to be a cross between a skirt and skinny leggings on the bottom (calves/ankle). It is flattering for most figures and can certainly give you that relaxed look. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea but I love how comfortable they are and that they can transform from day to night, any day, any time!
There are different fabrics, fits and folds. You must find the one that suits you best but my advice would be: keep it simple!
Some are worn all the way upto the waist and others are worn on top of your hips.. both have flattering, feminine looks- it all depends on what fits best on you and/or what you feel most comfortable in.
