Emergency!

Somebody call 911 or 999 quick. Some crimes of fashion are being committed as I write.
These are back in style. Yes, the harem pants, which make you look as though you've dropped a load in your trousers.















And these:























And these:















What will be next? This?









































Or this?

























Or even this?






















Where are the Fashion Police when you need them?

Harem Pants? WTF?

Fire Byrd: I didn't notice many orange tans. But maybe I'm so used to it, I don't even register it anymore.

MikeH: Yeah, I know.

Yay!!! (Just kidding - did I look horrendous or what).
Post thought - We could dare each other to post photos of our 80's fashion looks???
The one I'm quite interested in is the re-introduction of the one-piece trouser thing. In England we used to call it a boiler suit. This time round it's a lot more relaxed, silky and glam but Im dying to try one on, just to see. They are very comfy but on a 40-plus, plus it'll probably look like a sheet.

those harem pants are just dire arent they?!

Expat mum said...

My final sentence made me sound like I'm a 40+ plus. I'm really a size US 8. Not that it matters, the one-piece thing would still look hideous.

Expatmum: I wore one of those quite successfully in the 80s, but would think twice now. Why? If you're out having a drink or two or three and you suddenly need the loo.... You get my drift? And I've seen pix of you on Facebook and I bet you're actually a size 6.

Flowerpot: They're a crime!

Darthman: Nice to see you're still around.

I was definetly dressing like the material girl back in school. My roommate and I would check each other over to make sure we had the look right before heading out the door.

As for the harem pants-- they only remind me of mc hammer-- hammertime! :o)

Dave: It would have to be a horseload though.

Jenny: But would you want to be a material girl again? There's no originality in the fashion world anymore. It's all revivals of past eras.
