Ears To The Street: Please Hammer?!?!? Harem Pants Are Still Hurtin’ Em.

Ears To The Street: Please Hammer?!?!? Harem Pants Are Still Hurtin' Em.

Harem pants, salwar pants, hammer pants, poopy pants, diaper pants, droopy drawers…whatever you call them they’re still here and they aren’t leaving anytime soon. From the spring/summer collections, to Fall and beyond, these love-them-or-leave-them pants are still hurtin’ em. As a form of traditional dress in certain cultures these pants have been around for hundreds of years but we can thank mister M.C. Hammer for bringing these baggy bottoms to the fashion scene in the late 80’s. And here we are 20+ years later and from the likes of Ralph Lauren to Top Shop to Mary Meyers to Yves Saint Laurent these wide load leg coverings have become as basic as blue jeans. What say you ladies: Have you put Hammer pants in your fashion mix?

  1. Wish I still had the ones my mom made me in elementary school! My my joints were the ish! I got sooo made fun up for wearing them in Miami but damn the Harem has resurected.

  2. I just want to give the brand Nikita props for pushing these like 4 or 5 years ago, before the US was ready for em yet.

    Oh, and I actually own that MC Hammer Simplicity pattern. One of these days it’s getting put to use. It even comes with an official MC Hammer iron-on to apply to your pants. Dead serious.

    My Mama always says, “There’s something for everyone. You don’t have to like everything.” :)

    I do remember the Red tweed Nikita Harem pants! My friend still has hers and LOVES them. She always gets compliments on them (most recently from a few straight dudes).

    The ones at center look amazing with that blouse!
