I do love a piece of clothing you can play around with, and these pants, spotted on Arab Street in Singapore, looked like they might be fun.

Big and baggy, with a comfortable elasticated waist and gathered at the ankles harem-style, these pants have loops on the sides and buttons at the waist so you can alter the style at will.

So – wear them as is, falling in big folds along your thigh, or turn the excess material inside to create a couple of large pockets. Or – take the loops and fasten them to whichever buttons take your fancy, they can cross over in multiple combinations at both front and back.

Daughter #2 thought these were great, loose enough to lounge around in at home whilst still looking vaguely stylish. We had fun bargaining these down to S$20, and feel sure they will see a lot of use.
