Harem pants have a long history with women’s liberation. Originally adapted by French designers from men’s clothing in the early 1900s, they were a symbol of femininity and strength marking a shift in women’s wear.
The term “harem pants” is a generic phrase for baggy trousers originating from a Turkish style of clothing centuries old. After bursting onto the fashion scene in 1910, harem pants reappeared in the 1960s and 1970s prior to taking center stage in the 1980s in the form of parachute pants. Today, harem pants have secured their place in the modern world of fashion
