Harem pants, understandably, get a bad rap.
Take Selena Gomez's latest attempt: The singer sported white harem pants when she kicked off her "Stars Dance" tour in Vancouver on Wednesday night. Although they lacked the iconic MC Hammer poof, the shiny draped fabric did not make us want to run to stores clamouring for a piece of style history.
So who's to blame for the onslaught of these unflattering style monsters?
Look no further than Selena's ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber. The Canadian pop star got the Fashion Police's notice when he wore white harem pants at the Victoria's Secret fashion show last year and made all of us shudder when he wore a red version at this year's American Music Awards.
And it's not just teen icons who are wearing them.
Maybe we should just give up now and jump on the harem pants bandwagon.
Check out all the celebs who have dared to wear this trend-gone-wrong:
