Will harem pants really fly high this season?

Or will they just fly through our fashion trends? There have been some sightings of harem pants since last spring [Chloe's spring 2009 collection] but I have eyed a few recently that are somewhat cute. For real! Would I wear them? I don't know but I'd consider them for the interim. Harem pants are basically baggy pants tapered at the ankle. I haven't yet ventured out to make any my own but maybe I could look into my 1989 closet when the Hammer pants were in style. I remember begging my mother to make mine. When she finally gave in I chose a crazy tribal print that she made "V" cut at my ankles. My crotch, on the other hand, looked as though there were towels stuffed in my pants and that was a trend that fizzled quickly into the late 80's. How could I help myself? I was only 10! Since then I've seen a few in magazines and on the runway but I haven't dared to wear any. I'm thinking maybe this summer I'll start with a cover up pair for the beach and then see how that treats me. Hey - it's a start!

Here are a few that I've enjoyed and would possibly consider. Do you think you have it in your heart to break it down hammer style??
