A reader question…
You recently asked for reader input, and I have a styling question. How do I style a pair of extreme low-crotch harem pants?
I saw a woman wearing something like this on the street this summer and completely fell for them. I love the clean, simple lines, and the drama and contrast if the very low set crotch. But now I’ve bought them, and they puzzle me a bit… I’m a tall, long-legged slightly overweight H-figure and tend to wear long, loose tops with slim/narrow bottoms – but that doesn’t work here. But then what do? I hope you will consider this question
A dropped crotch harem pant is a more creative garment. The dropped crotch will make your legs look shorter. Now, depending on the volume of the pant this will affect how much volume you can wear on your top half.
Ideally, a voluminous bottom requires a more fitted top (the opposite of what you wear Eva), but you can still put in a little volume on the top, just ensure that your top comes back in at the waist /high hip area.
If you don’t want to draw attention to your tummy, wear a column of colour and end your top around your high hip (hip bone) rather than tucking in.
If you have a defined waist, tuck your top into your harem pants.
Shoes should blend in colour to your pants to help elongate your legs, unless you want to wear really high heels. Wedges and flatforms can be great with harem pants.
