We didn’t think it would ever happen, but it has. The era of MC Hammer pants, once thought buried so deep only a few poorly dressed paleontologists could find it, has now returned. Fortunately, this version of the pant has evolved to a bit slimmer look. A bit.
Let me preface this post by saying, if you are hippy, don’t wear these pants. There’s nothing wrong with being hippy – hips are great for things like a coveted hour glass figure. They’re not great for pants with extra volume at the top and a tapered leg.
If you don’t have hips, though, these pants are a fun, and super comfortable (seriously, I felt like I was wearing pajama pants all day) addition to your wardrobe. To keep them from looking like pajama pants, I wore heels and a blazer. And, to minimize the volume at the top of the pants, I chose a blazer that hit mid-hip and broke up the lines. I’m not quite bold enough for the full-on genie look.
I know this will be a short-lived trend – if for no other reason, because most of the population can’t wear them. But, I fully intend on wearing this look out until it’s no longer socially acceptable.
