Sportswear: Harem Pants

I have recently joined a summer boot camp and have had the pleasure of waking up with aching muscles every morning. I’ve learned a lot with this boot camp including the ability we have to push ourselves farther than we thought we could. It’s a great feeling, until the next morning that is. I’ve also noticed it’s causing me to be a bit overwhelmed due to the amount of laundry to keep up with on top of your day clothing. I thought it would be a great idea to take a pair of pants (excluding leggings) that you could wear both in the gym and outside of the gym. Because harem pants are crazy comfortable and allow you to have more movement, it makes sense that you could wear these to the gym for a good work out! Try some of these outfits for some inspiration!


If you’re going with a basic black pair of harem pants, spice up your outfit with a bold tank and a cute waterbottle when you’re hitting the gym. If you’re looking to wear them out and about, try a printed tank and a cool necklace with some sneaker wedges for a more sporty look.

Working Out:
Top: Tees By Tina
Water Bottle: Wet Seal
Sneakers: Nike

Pants: Vila

Going Out:
Necklace: Sports Girl
Tank Top: Blue Inc
Sneakers: Nike


Try your pants in a bold color if you’re a brave gal and pair it with some uber bold sneakers and a printed tank. This water bottle is awesome from Wet Seal, and so perfect for a little giggle at the gym! When going out, try a subtle crop top and some wedges for a feminine look.

If you’re a believe of the “go big or go home” philosophy then try these amazing Emilio Pucci harem pants. The bold color and the bold print is enough to catch anyone’s eye and make a statement. Tone it down in the gym by pairing a matching tee and some cute kicks. For going out try a cool necklace and a plain tank, but try to layer on some bangles or this amazing Chanel bracelet and some strappy sandals.

Pants: Emilio Pucci

Going Out:

These are a bit more of a subtle print, so you could pair them with a cute workout top with a fun saying, which you can find on You can brighten it up with a pair of bold sneakers or go for a bit more toned down version like I did here. When going out pair these harem pants with a soft pink blouse and some chunky pearls for a more classic look. Get some plain white heels and a cute clutch to match. This outfit would be perfect for a work event!
