Harem pants from the 80’s are making a huge comeback for Spring 2009. The pants are recognizable by their overly baggy hip, droopy crotch and calf-length tight-fitting cuff. The look goes back to rapper MC Hammer and the pants made famous and named after him as ‘Hammer Pants.’

Modern versions of harem or Hammer pants were seen on the runways for this spring in the collections of designers such as Ralph Lauren, Diesel and Chloe.

Take inspiration from these examples of how good design can make even the harem pant chic.
