Product Review: Aladdin Harem Pants

 

Hi everyone!

I hope you all doing well and looking forward to celebrating Thanksgiving Day!!

I’ve just received these handcrafted fun knee-length harem pants from One Tribe Apparel. I couldn’t wait to wear them and share my review.

First of all, I absolutely love the attached elastic belt that features a tribal print. I also found that the front pocket is useful for my mobile phone. I don’t have to rummage through my entire “museum-like” purse in order to make a call. The only thing that bothers me a bit is the thin fabric. These pants are probably not the best choice for cold winters. I wish that I could find similar styles in warm, yet light and chic fabrics. Lightweight, silky velvet is the first choice that comes to my mind.

What’s your opinion on these pants? How would you wear them?

Knits. I am craving cozy, yet chic items this season.

Leather jacket.
