Andra Naylor for Second City Style Magazine
Maybe it's because the girls in Sex and the City 2 (in theaters in
May) vacation in exotic Abu Dhabi or perhaps it was all the safari chic
shown on the runways recently, but whatever it is, I'm feeling a fashion
heat wave coming on.
While some will surely roll their eyes at Carrie's harem pants or
Samantha's sheer cape cover-ups, there are tribal-inspired looks that
can easily be incorporated into every-day summer wear.
Let's talk about those tricky harem pants that can make even the
biggest style risk-taker cringe. I believe you can make them work
for you, especially if you choose a less-exaggerated pair in a dark
color. Take the Flap-Pocket Pants by Diane von Furstenerg
($245 at bergdorfgoodman.com), for example. The high waist and relaxed
legs are forgiving if not flattering, and the pockets and drawstring
detail make them fun and casual. Or go for a modern take like the pair
by Rachel Rachel Roy with asymmetrical zipper closure
($89 at rachelroy.com).
