Harem pants, better known as, Hammer pants are making a very unnecessary comeback. This trend gone wrong never was a good look on anyone back in the late 80s and it's not a good look on anyone in 2009. Pants that don't fit in the crouch are NOT complimentary on anyone. Looking like you crapped in your pants is neither cute nor attractive, I don't care how thin or shapely you are. Ill-fitting pants should be replaced with trouser-styles that are either wide leg (to disguise big thighs) or skinny leg (for straight & narrow body types). It is wiser to invest in pants that fit your body style and that compliment your assets. Purchasing harem pants are a waste of money and won't last throughout the season. This is such a fading trend that I've already seen harem pants on the clearance racks.
