After much online browsing, I decided the style I wanted was more of a harem legging, as I generally prefer a slim leg, which I found at Urban Outfitters. I wore them for the first time today... and loved them.

There are some fabulously stylish harem pants available, two of my favourites would be Une Femme d'un Certain Age (Eilleen Fisher) and Odyssey Home (Rick Owens) (scroll down to the blog post for 19/4/13)
As we head into Winter here, I see these being quite a versatile item. Worn with a mid length slightly oversized topper for casual and a structured blazer for work.
So are harem pants on your radar? They are a garment that appears to sit on the fringe. Never truly in style but never out of style! To my mind this makes them an 'alternate classic'.
I would like to say a huge thank you to Sylvia at 40+ Style for interviewing me for her Style Interview series. It was a real highlight to be included on a blog I have read and enjoyed for a number of years.
