Harem pants are making a comeback

harem pants and Haremshosen are experiencing a real comeback during this time. But what is the best way to combine this type of trousers and what should I choose as a top? It's best when these oversize trousers are the center of attention. This means it's best paired with a fitted solid color top to really show off.  

How we fell in love with this style?

More than 10 years ago we discovered these unusual, particularly comfortable trousers on our travels through Asia. We loved trotting these on vacation and pairing them with simple crop tops. But would this fashion style also be suitable for everyday use? It takes a bit of courage and backbone to be the first in the town or city to walk around in wide-cut, short harem pants, known at the time as hippie pants, and we drew quite a few looks. But when we received feedback from friends and family, we knew that this fashion style would appeal not only to us but also to many other like-minded people. We then launched the virblatt brand and the rest is history today.
