The Horror: When Harem Goes Bad
We like harem pants, but we refuse to have anything to do with their buddy, the drop crotch. Unless you are a Japanese avant garde designer with impeccable cutting and precision (and even then it happens), such pants make you look like you're wearing Depends. Furthermore, as becca pointed out to me last week, drop crotch pants don't accomplish one of the things that makes us love pants -- keeping our thighs from touching. Add a hideous stripe or garish floral into the mix, and you have an eyesore. An eyesore Urban Outfitters is charging $48 for.
