Trousers: What to wear with this season’s shapes

**Harem pants

**Who would’ve thought the genie would inspire the most dramatic new style of trousers since skinny jeans?The good news is, by pairing harem pants with the right tops, there’s no need to sing U Can’t Touch This as you get dressed in the morning. The key is to think of the pants as the focal point of your outfit. Because of the billowy nature of the fabric around the pelvic area, they suit women with long, lean figures best.

Try pairing them with a simple, tucked-in tank in summer or a cropped jacket and slim-fitting blouse in winter, to avoid too much bulk. Harem pants can look great with exotic roman-style sandals but even better with heels, to elongate the shapely style. The idea is to create a sensual, flowing silhouette so aim for slightly weightier, quality fabrics that drape well.
