As for harem pants, we assume that Alexander Wang‘s football collection had something to do with the drop-crotch staying in style, and becoming transposed into sweatpants.

Oak‘s merchandise, however, glorifies the baggy pant as a high-fashion item. Perhaps the most surprising is the availability of jeggings—denim leggings—at Saks. We counted over 20 pairs, and from some surprising makers. While there were styles from trend-happy labels we’d expect like C&C, Juicy Couture, and Joe’s Jeans, we also came across offerings from some more sophisticated brands like Rag & Bone and Alice and Olivia. We have to admit, when these stretchy pants haven’t gone acid-wash crazy, and just have a nice dark color and simple lines … they’re not half bad. Dare we say that we might actually consider getting in on the jeggings trend if the wares were more classy?

And it’s true, many a manfolk, especially of the hetero variety, tend to eye fashion warily. In fact, when it comes to the couture realm, most of the time the only thing they could get behind (er, literally) is the hot models part of the whole trip. Brilliant fuchsia multi-tiered ruffled tunics? Not so much. Keep reading »

When the harem pant trend came along this spring, many were reluctant to jump on the baggy-bottomed train. And with good reason—why go all gypsy-ass when you know people are going to stare at you, or think you’re smuggling produce or drugs in your crotch region?
