This is my friend Looch, who is adorable in every way. As all of us with eyes can see, she is wearing- nay, sauntering in- the dreaded harem pants. Sure, the crotch isn't as low as others I've seen, and they aren't in some god awful print. But if we are being honest with ourselves, we can admit that these pants are giving her volume (where she doesn't have any) and a shape that only a pear could envy (and she is much closer to an hour glass in reality). In short, she could do much better. The lesson, ladies? If a cute, size 4 woman can't get away with harem pants, no one else can either.
