the universally unflattering pants: the drop-crotch... or so i thought

i know "harem" (or "hammer" or "drop-crotch" or whatever else you call them) pants have been popular for a while now.


by "popular" (lots of quotes, no?), i mean fashion bloggers raving over them and everyone else complaining about how terrible they are.


at first i was part of the latter group
. how could pants that don't even look good on a model look good on a mere mortal? then i heard someone (i forget exactly who) mention cropped harem pants. "hmmm," i thought. "that actually might look ok!!"
so i googled it, and...




not so bad, right? i would wear those...
so, to recap, what have we learned? normal harem pants=not so good, but cropped harem pants = yes!
although these metallic gold ones are pretty awesome too!



i hereby dare you to try on a pair. go on. you know you want to...
