Harem pants can be worn with T-shirts, blazers or blousy tops. They also work well when paired with leather jackets, tank tops and vests. Style Bistro showcases dozens of outfits featuring harem pants.
The key thing to remember is to focus on making the look structured instead of circus-like, says Nylon magazine. Pair harem pants with a button-down shirt or a nice blazer. Heeled sandals finish the look and give it a touch of femininity. For an edgier look, wear harem pants with a biker jacket with studs, zippers or a large buckle.
Brazen Woman also offers a few tips for successfully pulling off the harem pants look. Make sure the pants have a comfortable and appealing fit between the hips and waist. Pants should not look too tight or small; nor should they be too baggy. Pants should have just enough extra fabric to fit loosely over the legs. Choose harem pants in neutral or dark colors. Since the pants already have a strong outline and cut, solid colors work best when paired with shirts that are colorful or have busy patterns. Shirts worn with harem pants should be form-fitting. Tank tops, T-shirts and tight sweaters are good choices.
Because they are so versatile, they can be paired with almost anything and worn for any occasion as long as the top is always fitted with clean, sharp lines. Steer clear of harem pants that are too tight-fitting or too baggy. The waistband should sit above your bellybutton, and the pants should drape comfortably around your hips and thighs.
