WIW : Harems

Happy Weekend Ladies,

It's a long weekend for us here:)  

This outfit is the same top as Thursdays canteen outfit, but different bottoms and footwear.

I love these pants and am looking forward to taking them into Autumn and and being able to wear some of my jackets with them.  I am thinking open toe booties might work in Autumn but not sure what else.  

Footwear wise what else do you think might work?  Thanks for looking and I appreciate your suggestions.

xxx Deborah

    Love the outfit!
    I agree with the open-toed boots.
    Another suggestion that comes to mind is heavy-duty boots, such as Doc Marten's, but you have to try it and see if you like them with your pants.
    Maybe high heel pumps in an interesting color/pattern for a dressier look?

    Wonderful !!

    I think both open or closed toed booties would work.

    Those pants have lovely drape.  I like the idea of open-toed booties.  Maybe a scrappy cage sandal?

    Those are fab pants, and I love how the overall outfit feels very fashion forward, but retains a sense of ease. 

    Shoe-wise, I think the key is to no add bulk around the ankle, since there is already a lot of volume in the pants.  I like the idea of a metallic shoe with this all-black ensemble.

    Oh, goodness, Deborah, those harem pants are amazing! Are they Motto? They look utterly fab on you, and the drape fits your style aesthetic perfectly! I love them with those simple sandals--wow!--and agree with others that cage or upen toe sandals would look great as you move into autumn.

    Those harems look fab in you Deb - plenty of drape but in a somewhat controlled way, you know?

    Open toe booties are a no brainer for heading into fall. Do you have any ankle strap closed toe shoes? I think those would work well too,

  • Joy replied 4 years ago

    These are fab and look perfect for your style.

    I don't have any more shoe wisdom than what you have already gotten, but just chiming in to say that I love this outfit and those pants! I'm typically unsure about harem pants in general, but I do love these. I also think that your necklace is gorgeous!! It looks fantastic with this outfit and the neckline of that top. Wow.

    I think the shoe choices have all been suggested here - and I don't think you'll have a problem finding something that works well. I love these harems, and would love to find a pair just like it. Are they Motto?

    Great look, you look fab!

    I like a small amount of foot showing with harems- so pointy flats or open toe boots or even oxfords work. I find ankle boots harder to wear with them- maybe this is just me.

    Lovely drape here.

    Super cute harem pants.

    Super cool look Deb!

  • Deborah replied 4 years ago

    Thank you for the harem love and footwear suggestions. I do have a pointed toe flat that I hadn't considered and Shannon I love the idea of something like the SE ankle strap closed in shoe. That would be a nice addition for me.

    And yes the pants are Motto.:). And still available:). They are the Paris Pant:)

    I love those pants because of the general drape but not too much of it in the crotch area. That sounds terrible, but you do look lovely here.

  • Brooklyn replied 4 years ago

    Great pants Deborah. You wear them well.

  • Kari replied 4 years ago

    I love how these pants drape on you. I'm marking down many of your posts with harem or slouchy black pants for inspiration for my own pair.
