August 13, 2009

Many people believe that harem pants are one trend that they can’t pull off, but really anyone can!  Harem pants are loose fitting pants that are slightly tapered and tight around the lower leg. Harem pants were featured on the runway of designer Amy Smilovic this spring, but the trend will still be popular this fall. Harem pants were also seen on the runways for Balmain and Christian Dior this fall.

Harem pants can look nice with a tank top or long-sleeved shirt and colorful, high-waisted belt. Harem pants are a great way to show off your fun, outgoing side and a perfect for someone who wants to try something different.

Harem pants can range from $19.99 (Urban Outfitters)  to as high as $550 (Sonia by Sonia Rykiel). Check out these unique harem pants from Sonia Rykiel, Urban Outfitters and Forever 21.

Finding the right outfits to pack for a summer trip can be hard. Trust me, I know. I’m leaving for Paris in a few days and I haven’t even started packing because I want to find the perfect traveling outfits. I need to somehow find a way to pack a month’s wardrobe and keep my suitcase under the 50 lb. weight limit. This could be a challenge for me. To help with this predicament, I’ve picked out some essential items that any fashionable jetsetter should include in her wardrobe.

Jersey and Chiffon Dresses: Not only are they comfortable and don’t wrinkle when thrown in a suitcase, but they can be as dressy or casual as you want them to be.

Mod mini-skirts: Patterned, solid, fitted, voluminous, tiered – there are no rules when it comes to mini-skirts.

Oversized: Supersize that shirt, blouse or dress and pair with a cinched belt or chunky necklace.

Silk Scarves: When you start running out of clothes, just toss a scarf on and it looks like a completely different outfit. Plus, it can also double as a headband.

Shades: Join the bandwagon and grab a pair of Ray Ban Wayfarers.

Sandals: T-strap and gladiators—need I say more?
