Let’s be honest now, no matter what you say, or who you are, you can’t deny harem pants are like a gift from the heavens when it comes to clothes. So comfy, usually ‘one size fits most’ and their cute designs too!
If you’ve visited Thailand especially, you’d probably already have a slight harem pants addiction! You would also know that harem pants can be purchased for about US$10 or less in Thailand, so why buy harem pants from Bohemian Island instead?
If you’re anything like me, you’d prefer to shop with a company that work ethically and supports a good cause.
Bohemian Island donates 10% of their proceeds to the Soi Dog Foundation which helps some of the 30,000 stray dogs in Thailand (already reason enough for me!) But if that wasn’t enough, all their materials are sourced from a family-run factory in Thailand that also has excellent working conditions and provides fair pair for their employees. So no sweatshop conditions! Yay!!
Because of their thin fabric, even though it's a full length pair of harem pants, they're extremely comfortable and airy. So even with Singapore's hot and humid weather I don't find myself feeling stuffy and hot when I'm moving in Bohemian Island pants.
This girl loves her leggings, but when you need something that makes you feel more relaxed and free, something perfect for a rest day, these are definitely my go to!
Now, what stole my heart before I even considered the touch and quality of the fabric were definitely the designs. After al, It's the first thing you notice about a product.
I got my chance to try my first pair of Bohemian Island Harem Pants when hosting #SunKissedYogis in June. Bohemian Island was generous enough to sponsor the challenge and send each of the hosts a pair of their pants.
Though their fabric is thin, I found it to be of better quality than the pairs my sister bought for me when she was visiting Thailand. Bohemian Islands beautiful colours though, were a bonus.
To give you an idea on how much better Bohemian Island pants are compare to the pants directly from Thailand markets - the pairs I owned directly from Thailand only lasted me 3 washed before they completely lost their elasticity in the waistband and had to be thrown out! It pretty much went from one-size-fits-all too XXXL. (Maybe just another case of "you get what you pay for"!)
My first pair of Bohemian Island pants (pictured left), however, has been worn, used and washed about 10 times now and they still manage to keep their vibrant colours, elasticity in waist and ankle bands and there have been no signs of wear and tear.
So when I saw that they were looking for bloggers to help promote their brand I jumped at the opportunity.
After receiving my second pair (pictured below), I knew I was in love with the brand. Bohemian Island had already been generous enough to send me 2 pairs and the least I could do was support this brand that has clearly stolen my heart.
I have seen quite a few yogis in Bohemian Island pants over the last few months but even though I was intrigued, I never got around to buying myself a pair. But when I finally did decide to and have a look at their website, I was completely blown away.
Every collection was filled with such beautiful designs and heaps of colour options to choose from. Personally, the elephant print designs were my favourite, I could have them all and still need more haha. But a girl needs a bit of variety in her closet so I picked my favourite from their different collections.
As I did before, I was in love with the new pants! They were consistent in quality which is something I definitely worry about when it comes to buying cheaper products online - thankfully Bohemian Island lives up to their 100% Satisfaction Guarantee!
When I got my mother and grandmother interested in buying a pair or two for themselves, I was just thinking this was going to be a comfy pair of pants for them to wear around the house or to run errands. But I learned a thing or two this last week when both of them managed to style up their Bohemian pants!
[Unfortunately because of our busy celebrations I missed my opportunity to get a photo of the two of them! But I will next time they wear it! ]
Paired with lacey tops and a pair of pumps, they both showed me these beautiful pants that I thought was reserved for lounging around in or doing yoga in can be part of an absolutely gorgeous outfit for semi-formal occasions.
I can easily say that Bohemian Island pants are pants everyone needs to have. Not just because they're pretty and comfortable but the wonderful cause they support makes it so much more worth buying.
Style it up or stay lazy around the house like me haha it's good that you can use these pants for almost any occasion.
But be careful, once you have a pair you really can't stop wanting more!
