Happy Monday everyone, sorry my blog has been a little content empty recently! 14 hour work days between four jobs starts taking its toll on my blog writing content 🙂 Anyway, today I am sharing a blog about harem pants. I have really steered clear of these since have more of a curvy build and I have seen a bunch of cute girls suddenly transform into what looks like a pudgy genie. I finally found these black pants at Cotton On for only $10, so I decided to give them a whirl in the dressing room. I loved how they had just a little flare to them near the pockets, but didn’t flare out too much in the thigh and rear area where I don’t need any extra oomph! Here is the outfit I came up with for them as well as some tips on wearing harem pants if you do not have a tall, thin, willowy build. *WAIT* Don’t forget to enter the $500 West Elm giveaway I’m participating in as well (scroll to the bottom of this post to enter).
Harem Pant Tips for Regular Size & Curvy Girls:
-Choose a dark color
-If you choose a patterned pair, it should have more of a vertical pattern vs horizontal
-Go for pants with only a slight flair in the pockets
-Pair with a vest or blazer to give the top more structure and keep you from looking too flared near your midsection (make sure the vest/blazer has a good fit/structure though, otherwise it could make you look bigger)
-*Also, put the blazer/vest over a well fitting shirt vs. a puffy shirt (helps to accent the smallest part of your waist more.
Let me know if you found these tips helpful and good luck in the giveaway below, I would absolutely LOVE to win $500 to West Elm so you girls are lucky ducks!
