I’m not a big fan of satin dresses. Most of the time, the fabric is too thick, so it ends up getting weird and stiff, and bunching up oddly.
I’m even less of a fan of satin pants. Satin pants with rolled hems. Because you know what is meant to be a casual fabric? Satin.
You roll ripped jeans. You occasionally roll khakis. But satin? Really?
I am hating this gathered hem trend for pants. Stop trying to make harem pants work. Stop trying to make pseudo-harem pants work. It’s not going to happen. And if it is, I’m going to ignore it completely and insist it’s not happening, because to accept that harem pants are “in” is to give up my faith in the fashion industry entirely.
These pants could almost – ALMOST – be passible if they had a lower rise and just finished as a straight leg. Even if they had finished as a cropped straight leg with a lower rise, I’d have let them slide. Sure, they’re in an unwearable fabric, and odds are they will be stained beyond measure by the end of the first day you’ve worn them. But they’d be passably cute.
With the higher rise, though, they create that weird limbo-region in the crotch/lower abdomen area, where it doesn’t quite look like you’re wearing mom jeans, but they’re not low enough to not be mom jeans. So instead, you’re just wearing bad idea jeans. And nobody wants to wear those.
