I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Not every body is right for every trend. But this time, for the new harem pants (Hello, Hammer!), I’m making an exception to the general rule. That’s because this is one those trends that is actually flattering  on all frames and for all ages. Called everything from harem pants to dressy jogging pants, this light, easy-to-wear style is everywhere.

It’s no wonder the trend is so popular. Slip into a pair and you may never want to take them off. They are that comfy, and that versatile. If you pair them with the right outfit, you’ll find you can wear your harem pants running errands, to a business meeting, and off to meet friends for drinks. Because they’re loose-ish, and often have a drawstring, you’ll also be able to sit down and really enjoy a big meal.

Check out these 4 looks to get ideas about how to dress up and dress down your harem pants. Select accessories from your closet – Tshirts, blazers, heels and flats – depending on the look you’re going for. Then follow the 7 tips below to make your harem pants work for you.
