Drop crotch, baggy, tent-like pants are back. They didn't look good then and they don't now. Moms: please DON'T touch this!
Stylemama: Shopping this weekend I came across a rack of MC HAMMER drop-crotch pants. Apparently they're now called "harem" pants. Excuse me. When I pulled them off the rack, the sales lady came over and exclaimed "Aren't those great?! You can wear them to the office, or anywhere really!" Um ... I wouldn't be caught dead in this parachute number and I don't see how they would look good on anyone, even a skinny model.
I imagined myself getting into my SUV and getting the crotch stuck in the car door. Or running up the stairs and tripping over the parachute. I smiled at the lady and say "Nah...I'm just kind of looking." The very last thing I'm going to be spending my money on, especially in this economy, would be Hammer pants.
