How To Wear Harem Pants

Long gone are the days where harem pants were relegated for workouts and casual days in the house! Today, this boho-inspired essential can be worn for almost any occasion – whether you add them to your everyday wardrobe or style them up for a night out. At Kit and Kaboodal, we love our range of harem pants. Designed to be comfortable and stylish, they’re a great choice for anyone looking for an effortless way to look chic this summer. 

We’ve asked the lovely Kit and Kaboodal team for their own style tips for wearing harem pants and how just a few additions can take them from day to night!

How to wear harem pants

Harem pants look great when paired with a neutral top that that sits just above the pants. Many people go for a crop top, but if this isn’t really you then opt for a fitted basic top that you can tuck in to your harem pants. Defining the waist is really important when wearing these, so try to make sure that the top you choose allows the harem pants to be the obvious feature.

How to wear harem pants during the day

Crafted from a beautiful lightweight fabric, our harem pants are ideal for everyday wear with an elasticated waistband and split detailing to the legs. They also feature a pair of built-in shorts for extra support, leaving you feeling comfortable and covered as you enjoy your day.

For daytime wear, we recommend pairing your harem pants with a t-shirt or top that’s tucked into your pants. If you don’t fancy going for the full tucked in look, the classic ‘French Tuck’ is a great alternative – simply tuck the front of your shirt into the pants and leave the back relaxed as normal. This not only gives you a great waist (or the illusion of one), it ensures that the pants are the focal point of the outfit.

In terms of colour, we’re all for going bold! Our range of harem pants spans everything from classic neutral shades to bold, vibrant colours. A bright pair worn with a simple white or black top will create a timeless style that’s ideal for shopping trips, lunches or days spent in the garden.

Finish your look with a pair of flat sandals or sneakers for a daytime look that’s cool and comfortable.

How to wear harem pants at night

Harem trousers may not be your first port of call for a glamorous evening outfit however, this versatile style can be easily styled for any evening occasion. For an evening look, we love to pair our harem pants with a simple vest top, again, tucked in to make the most of the flattering elasticated waist! Summer evenings call for a splash of colour and our cobalt blue, orange and fuschia pink harem pants are a great choice for special occasions. As the night cools you can easily layer a blazer or cardigan over the vest top for a chic look.

The pants should always be the focal point of your outfit however, that’s not to say you can’t go glam with accessories. A statement necklace is a great finishing touch to your ensemble along with your favourite layered bangles to keep that boho style running through your look.

For an evening event, you can pair your harem pants with comfortable wedge sandals or our platform espadrilles to give you that extra bit of height.
