Day 4 Pant Challenge (The Genie).

So harem pants aren’t really my thing. I lived through MC Hammer in real time and once around that block was enough for me.

My preferred adaptation of this pants trend is what I call the ‘Mini Genie’. As in “I Dream Of’. They have the relaxed fit and elasticised ankle of the harem but are slim fit through the leg.

These pants are from Sass & Bide and soft as silk pyjamas. Aside from the comfort factor the best thing about these pants is the pockets. Very, very important. If you plonk a pocket on the widest part of you hips then all they will do is amplify. You want pockets that drape down the leg. Like these. CLICK TO BUY

Do you own a Rolling Stones shirt? It’s time.

Even if you hate the band. The logo is such an iconic piece of rock/fashion art that it transcends the group and the music. I picked this jumper up in Tokyo. It combines all my favourite things – skinny sleeves, American flag and the emblem.

    You look so comfy! I find it really hard to get good jumpers in Australia, I just bought one on ASOS but there is just too much oversized poor-quality rubbish.

    I am wearing a very similar pair from Skinny Nelson today for my long haul flight to Rome! So comfy.

    Many thanks for the tip on these pants Paula! Love them and found them in a S&B boutique (plus a range of sizes instore at Brisbane Myer). They are similar to the “five minutes later’ style, which I bought last summer and are so comfy – love.
