Harem Pants Styling

Harem Pants Styling

Model sitting in boutique wearing harem pantsHarem pants with their baggy silhouette at the hips and upper thighs, then tapering at the calves first made their rise to popularity in the 90’s lead by MC Hammer as he and his dance troupe jumped around energetically in the baggy trousers in ‘Can’t Touch This!” videos. To this day some still call them “Hammer Pants”.

Today’s version of Harem pants are much more sleek and sophisticated boasting various fabrics, designs and styles. They can be found on everyone from Pop stars to some of the coolest celebrities.

They continue to endure as strong fashion pieces due to their dramatic edginess along with effortless styling advantages:

  • They mix well with a wide variety of tops and accessories
  • A taller person can wear them lower at the hips while a shorter person would do well to wear them above the waist to elongate the body.
  • The cuffs don’t necessarily need to hit the ankles

Harem pants offer so much versatility that they can very well be considered a fashion essential. From a run to the supermarket to styling for the office; with the right coordinating pieces, these pants can be worn anywhere.

Harem_Pants_2There are tons of options, below we outline a few of our favorites.

Harem pants with Sneakers – This is one of the most simple, comfortable, every day looks you can carry with harem pants. A simple t-shirt, that you can either tuck in or tuck out. Add some simple accessories like a necklace or bracelets and wear them with your favorite kicks.

Style them with heels – If you’re going for a more formal look, then choose heels.  Along with a jacket or scarf and a matching handbag, this look offers simplistic sophistication.

Match up a Blazer -Blazers and scarves go wonderfully with harem pants, particularly if its a bit chilly outside. As mentioned above, this looks works great with heels, handbags, some simple jewelry and sunglasses. Ideal for the office.

Add some edge – Opt for a Leather Jacket over the blazer for some added drama

Raglan Sleeve Design

Raglan Sleeve Design

raglan sleeve designWe often think of the raglan sleeve design as a shirt or jacket with contrasting color sleeves. For example, the body of the shirt is white and the sleeves are black. However, the distinction goes a little deeper than that.

The sleeve on a traditional shirt is made up of several pieces sewn together and then attached to the shell of the garment. Raglan sleeves on the other hand, incorporates a one-piece design with a seam that goes from the underarm to the neckline, eliminating the shoulder seam.
Raglan shirts fall into the casual or sport category. You can find them in various sleeve lengths from short, three-quarter, to long sleeve. In many cases, the sleeve is made from fabric of a different color than the rest of the shirt, creating a sporty look.
Raglans are often used in the design of active sportswear due to the added comfort and freedom of movement. You will often find this design in sweatshirts and sports jerseys, such as baseball shirts.
Other popular uses of the raglan sleeve can be found in maternity clothes and lounge or sleepwear. This sleeve design works well providing loose, free-flowing movement. The raglan design also works well for plus size clothing.
Many Jackets and coats utilize the raglan design due to the fact they offer extra room. A common style is the varsity or letterman jackets. The current trend is to size the jacket wear the sleeves are more fitted to the body and arms but traditionally, the raglan style jacket offers a wider underarm and sleeve, allowing for bulky sweaters or layering.

Genesis Design

Classic Logo | Genesis


Genesis Fine Jersey Crew


We call this Genesis because it was the very first design in the Saint John 316 Collection.

A special verse for me from the Book of Genesis is found in 1:26  where it reads; Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness“…

One of the most important characteristics God has given us according to His likeness is the Power of Creative Thought.

Like God, we are able to conceive a thought or idea and then bring it into existence.  No other creature possess ability of creative thought.

The enemy, Satan can only corrupt what was created, he has no power of his own to create.


It was through this creative power that Saint John 316  came into fruition. Inspired by God in 2004, as a ministry tool it our desire to only provide the Urban Christian Community an alternative in cultural apparel, but we hope to attract the “un-churched” with innovative messages and designs that inspire and invoke conversations about the nature of Christ.
