But aren't they just harem pants in disguise? here

How do I wear them without wanting to do the MC Hammer shuffle every time? wink (My thinking was to wear them for upcoming beach holiday)

Don't wear them with chunky heels like the model- what a horrible look! They would look good with gold sandals and a vest/off shoulder tshirt.

They are a little bit haremy. Won't they be quite hot for a beach holiday or are you staying in the UK?

Joggers are grey baggy trousers round my end. Addidas joggers etc

The picture you shown look like baggy leggings

Aren't they to be worn exercising with trainers? Bit odd in the picture!

I saw someone wearing these the other day and I genuinely thought their leggings had just gone super baggy! i didn't realise you could actually buy them

I like them and I agree with Tweet They'd look great with some gold gladiator sandals, especially those that go just above the ankle

We're going to a Greek Island, and was thinking more for evening or for slinging on first thing when we go down for breakfast. I'm quite cold blooded so has to be well over 30 degrees before I feel hot grin

They come up massive - I had to go down two sizes to avoid the nappy effect! But they are slim fitting below the knee and bunch up a bit around the ankle.

So do we think loose t/shirt or vest rather than tight then? Am hourglass shaped so normally avoid boxy tops.

Oooh I really like those smile ... <goes to buy some>

I actually like them with the shoes in the photo too.

Fairy - they are a lovely drapey slub jersey and more importantly have an elasticated waist (essential on an all inclusive holiday wink)

I love elasticated waists smile perfect for more cake ... and more cake.... and ...!
