Trends Report: Should harem pants be back in style?

Celebrities like Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez seem to be making a fashion statement lately with harem pants, but really? Do we want the baggy bottoms, made famous in the 80s by the likes of M.C. Hammer back in style?

I can see the appeal of them on a comfort level. They're airy, great to wear for a gut-busting feast at a buffet or to lay around in in the privacy of your own home, but seriously — let's be honest — they do no favours for one's figure. This is how harem pants look on models. You feelin' it?

The flip-side is, if you're anything like Bieber, wearing harem pants allows you easy access to do 'crotch grabs' and air jumps.
