NYC Street Fashion Shoot

Harem Pant in NYC

I hit the streets for a fun NYC fashion shoot. I’ve been teaming up with Erin & Erica at Bellamy Blue for the past few months for our Monday style posts. Mostly we do our fashion shoots in the Chelsea studio, but these fun Eileen Fisher Harem Pants were just begging to see the action outside.

The look started months ago when I got to meet Eileen Fisher at an event. Eileen had these amazing black pants on on–they had such movement and grace to them. After the event, I talked the ladies at Eileen Fisher PR into lending me an outfit (including the pants!) for a photoshoot.

The Harem Pants ($178) are a lightweight viscose. Yes, to some they are baggy, but I thought it was the best of a pant and a skirt combined. The freeness of a skirt with the coverage of a pant.

I set out to accessorize the look and make it my own. In my opinion, they look a little silly with flats, so I tossed on some high, strappy sandals. The other key is the top. Flowy on top and bottom? Not a good look.

To make this work, I picked a top that was slightly body-conscious. I had a fitted white tank layered with the Eileen Fisher Scoop Tank with Sequins ($278), again an airy piece that has a touch of glamor to it.

As far as jewelry, I wore a pair of chandelier earrings I picked up in India back in 2004. The bracelets are from Charming Charlie they are a stretchy bangle and come in four metallic finishes. I think they are something like $5/each. These were gifted to me at a press event this winter and I wear them a ton.

Before the shoot, I showed the look to Mr.Momtrends. He was not a fan. But let’s be realistic. A lot of fashion is meant to be playful and make the woman inside happy. And this outfit did just that.

After shooting a few pictures in the studio that captured the nuts and bolts of the look, we raced out to 7th Avenue before the studio time was up to nab these last fun shots. I love the playfulness and the energy of them. I’m pretty lucky to work with such creative partners.

These street shots are some of the favorite photos I’ve taken yet. Let me tell you, it’s a whole different ballgame shooting out of a private studio. People were watching and I felt a little self-conscious. But then, the best thing happened. I just loved the look and let go of who thought what and had fun. That my fashion friends, is a success story.


Now what about you? I hope you’ll share what you’ve been wearing on Monday Mingle. Monday Mingle is a fashionable collaboration between me, Jill from Glamamom and Kristin from BonBonRoseGirls. Each week we post about our personal style and then invite our friends to join in the fun. Today I get to host again. I’m going to give away a Stells & Dot cosmetics bag and votive candle to one lucky fashionista who links up.

    They look great in you. I’m too bulky of a human to pull off this look.

    • momtrends

      Thanks for the vote of yes, I know these aren’t for everyone, but they sure were fun to shoot.

      • Dude Mom

        They actually look really fun to wear too. I am in Canada right now and was just admiring a woman walking down the street in them. Made me think, that Nicole is internationally cool:)!

  • theshoppingmama

    Very bold and stylish, Nicole! I am not sure I have the moxie to pull this off. You look amazing, as always.

    • momtrends

      Thanks Kate. I never try to be boring. That’s too easy.

  • April Harris

    I love this photo shoot so much Nicole…I would love to find something like this for my daughter!! It is so stylish and fun. She had her first baby three months ago and needs something to brighten her up about her looks right now! Thanks for the great ideas!

  • Those photos turned out amazing!!

    • momtrends

      You’ve got to meet the girls at Bellamy. They are the best!

  • I really love this look! Haven’t made the bold move to harem pants yet, but you totally rock them!

    • momtrends

      Thanks Molly. Didn’t try them at school pick up yet!

      • Stillblondeafteralltheseyears

        Oh I triple dog dare you on that one.

  • Photos out in public can take a bit of getting used to, but it helps when you feel like your look is awesome and you’ve got a supportive photographer!

    • momtrends

      Agree. A photographer that leads rather than follows is key!

  • Happinessatmidlife

    What a great look! I am not brave enough to rock harem pants but they look fab on you!


  • Stillblondeafteralltheseyears

    I thnk you are beautiful, I think the shots are beautiful, I think the shoes are beautiful, I DO NOT think the harem pants are beautiful! Sorry…

    • momtrends

      Shelley–Thanks why these posts are fun! We all have opinions and if we all dressed alike it would be so very, very boring.

      • Stillblondeafteralltheseyears

        ! The last thing you could ever be is BORING girl!! Keep rocking it up!

  • thriftychicmom

    I have never been a fan on harem pants but these look great on you, that top is FABULOUS!

    • momtrends

      They are controversial. And the top is even better in person.

  • Carly

    LOVE harem pants especially in the summer months…you look AWESOME!!! Love the street shots…I am shooting later today on the Point Pleasant Boardwalk for a London Times collaboration and I am nervous..there will be a ton of peeps…oh well!!! C

  • momtrends

    You are right a little fashion boost is just what she needs.

  • momtrends

    Thanks Janise. I’ve had them for a few years and they seem to go with everything.

  • momtrends

    The taxi was awesome. Couldn’t have timed it better if we tried.

  • I was wondering if you felt self conscious having a photo shoot outside! I know I would. 🙂 But you look great! And I wouldn’t have chosen those pants, but i actually like them a lot. Very fun!

  • Kilee Nickels

    I just bought harem pants last week- they are so comfy I bought two pair! I am styling them this week in my upcoming WIWW post- at 38 weeks prego! You look great in them!

    • momtrends

      Hope you’ll share some pictures.

  • Oh to Be a Muse

    I like that you took to the NYC streets for this shoot! Great harems.

    • momtrends

      Thank you. NYC is the place to try a trend.

  • You’re totally right– the movement is amazing!

    Taking photos on the street in New York is no joke. I’ve always wanted to take them crossing a street but haven’t yet… I’m a little bit afraid to get run over by a taxi!

  • Spashionista Alicia Searcy

    It must’ve been wonderful to meet Eileen Fisher in person. I cannot believe how good you look in those pants – not to mention the rest of the outfit! If I attempted this I’d look like the evil clown in the “Spawn” comic book movie. ;-P

    breaking out of comfort zones…that’s what this was all about.

  • susan

    Seriously amazing photos! LOVE.

  • Jen @ Cuddles and Chaos

    I’m mortified shooting fashion posts in the hidden corners of my own home, I can’t even imagine looking that fabulous (and not awkward and hermit like) having my picture taken in the middle of Manhattan!

  • Ann

    The pants and top look great! Very stylish and you look wonderful in white.

    I am not keen on pats of any sort, but you look stunning in the streets of Bew York.

  • Alison Lumbatis

    Perfect street style! I really love the color of those sandals with the black flowy pants.
