Stop! It’s Harem Time!

StyleHarem_11-30-13_MAINThe Harem Pant. Love them or hate them, these pants have been one of the hottest trends in dancewear for the last couple of years and they just keep getting bigger! Also known as the MC Hammer pant, drop crotch pant, and parachute pant, harem pants are possibly the most argued about garment to hit the dance floor in a very long time!

If you tuned in to the last season of SYTYCD surely you noticed that harem pants were the general uniform for hip hop rehearsals, and you can spot them everywhere at any given dance competition or convention.

Here at DDS it started with one pair of simple, well-fitting, cotton blend, Natalie brand harem pants. They came in black. And we couldn’t keep them in stock; they simply flew off the shelves! Here we are two years later and that simple pair of Natalie harem pants comes in four colors for both adults and kids.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg too! Every Discount Dance Supply brand has a pair of harem pants or capris to offer. We have sequined capri harems from Lacey Schwimmer, fierce foil print harems from Double Platinum and a whole slew of harem sweats from outside brands like Urban Dancwear, Urban Empire and Funky Diva.

The latest and greatest harems come from the BSBF collection from dancer, tour director, mentor and choreographer extraordinaire,  Brian Friedman. These harems come in either a cropped or ankle length and have slick motocross details for an edgy modern vibe that just oozes coolness.

What’s your opinion?
