I’m still wearing my Ponte Pants because Spring has been slow to arrive in WA. But I’ll probably go on wearing them at least until summer strikes with her iron-clad hand. Here are 5 different ways to wear ponte pants.

I seriously love them. Since I returned from the world cruise they’ve been my go-to garment of choice because they’re so versatile.

You can dress them up or dress them down – hide a less than flat tummy, wear something baggy over them to hide your ass too if you like, and maybe even pop on a scarf too.

5 Ways to wear Ponte Pants

  1. With a baggy t-shirt that covers your bum, preferably something fitted and flared as above.
  2. With a fitted t-shirt, over which you wear a long cardigan.
  3. With a pretty floaty kaftan top.
  4. With a longish collared shirt and a belt slung low.
  5. With a lovely winter sweater that covers your tum and bum.

And of course you can wear them with sneakers, like FRANKiE4’s in the photo above, or with boots as below if the weather is cooler.

Today was a no make up day, bar for a bit of blusher and some lippy. So I threw on my Millers ponte pants with a last-year’s T from Cotton On,  a pair of very old boots, a $15 necklace I bought on a Princess Cruises world cruise in a sale, and my Panama hat – yes the one I bought in Equador 🙂 The total look would come in well under $100.

Here’s how it all strung together.

Then, because I was getting a bit cold, I layered on a wild animal print sweater that I bought last year in England.

Time for a glass of wine don’t you think?

Cheers, m’dears!

    Yes I think ponte pants are great too for the cooler weather. I love wearing mine around the house as they are so comfy. Sometimes I wear them shopping with a nice longline top and I’ve worn them on long haul flights too. Recently I found a pair of lightweight pull on pants at Uniqlo which are great too. I wore them on the flight to Bali recently and they weren’t too hot on our arrival to the high temperatures.

      Ooh going to check out those pants on Uniqlo Kathy – Thanks for the tip. I have a pair of white Uniqlo pull on pants that I’ve worn loads and they don’t need much ironing either.

    Love ponte pants. I got a burgundy pair, and an olive pair, on sale from Crossroads this winter – both for $15! It’s too hot to wear them here in Bris-Vegas now though 🙁

      Was looking for some other colours Janet, and that’s a great price! Thanks for the heads-up 🙂

    Love my ponte pants and wear a pair literally to death every year, so next autumn I will be looking for the next perfect pair. So great for travel and ideal for those days when you feel like wearing track pants or PJs but need to be a little more stylish.

      Hi Jan, yes me too, I wear mine to death and they are so great for travelling.
