I dunno what these are actually called... my friend & I call them our MC Hammer pants. Hahaha... tribal print parachute pants. They are THE BEST. I wear them almost every Friday. I would pretty much wear them every day if I could.
They are very silky, light & comfortable!!! Perfect for hot Texas summers. And they are stretchy & not restricting AT ALL. I've gotten compliments from both teenagers & 50-year-old ladies while at Costco. Seriously, this lady stopped me for like 10 minutes to talk about my pants. I usually pair it with a black top. Sometimes with navy or red. I wasn't sure about the purchase initially... but now wish I had bought more pairs because I absolutely love them.
Tips on purchasing MC Hammer pants:
- Try on different sizes & different brands. A few brands looked horrible on me.... made me look like a teapot. This pair that I bought looked horrible in one size & perfect in the other size.
- I find that they look best when worn with sandals... not ballet flats. not sneakers.
- Don't be afraid of pattern... that's what makes these fun.
I love these SHOES!!! I actually found them while shopping at a thrift store... it was love at first sight. I pranced around in them the whole time I was shopping & hubs just rolled his eyes. Anyways, so I'm not sure where the original owners bought them. When I googled the brand "Te Casan" , I found out that the whole brand flopped after a year of launching. Sad because it was actually Natalie Portman's line of shoes & there are some pretty cute shoes from that line & I like her! I think the line failed because something to do with their $200 price tag for non-leather shoes. HAH. I got them for $25.
Anyways, they are magenta velvet & work well for all kinds of occasions. I've worn them to work & to outings with friends & to weddings! They're wedges, so pretty easy to walk around in. Peep toes... I have a weakness for peep toed shoes. Since I normally stick to solid colored clothing, these shoes are my "accessory" to add some "oomph" to my outfits. Love them.
