In case you missed our "How to Wear Dressy Sweatpants" feature, here is some added incentive to check it out.

Genetic Denim has given us girls the perfect pants for the coolly slouchy months of the spring-summer season. These relaxed drawstring cotton wonders can be dressed up or dressed down with a sweet sandal or a sky-high heel.

"Being that we are known for having the softest and best fits on the market, I wanted to create a trend that stays true to who we are as a brand," Ali Fatourechi, Creative Director of Genetic Denim told StyleList. "This is a style that is both comfortable and chic."

And while these pants have the look and soft feel of sweats, the design features are decidedly slimming, not bulky. Two back patch pockets and slanted front pockets create a flattering shape and keep the polished look of denim. (And the cropped style gives it a leg up over the highly coveted Pajama Jean.)

And say you want to pair these puppies with a chambray shirt, well, here's how to wear the denim-on-denim look. What do you think? Can you dig the sweatpant jean?
