Harem pants: the rise of the low crotch
I´m going to post about harem pants until you start to like them... :D To be clear, I´m not trying to force belly dancing wear into your everyday wardrobes but concentrate more on the more fashionable version on harem pants, the low-crotch tapered leg pant. I myself have three pairs, one made from different fabrics (patchwork) and two made from track sweatpant jersey. They are all so mega confortable to wear and by looking at fashion blogs and online shops I see no trouble pairing the low-crotch sweatpant with some killer heels and a blazer jacket. Also the floral (not to be confused with the ugly 80's GYM pant..) and tribal patterned harems are looking pretty chic, now that spring arrives. For more inspiration photos on harem pants, check out my Flickr blog photo gallery.
Low-crotch is not a new thing, but if you ask me I´d have to categorize it as one of the top 5 in 00´s pant styles. It looks super cool casual, especially on guys. The pattern is also quite simple to make, and I´ve wanted to make myself a pair from secondhand band t-shirts for a while now.. Pray that my dreadful move will be all over soon and I´ll make you a pattern and tutorial from this. Would you like that?!
