Considering the continuing athletic trend, sweatpants are making their way back on the fashion radar. The goal is to wear your sweatpants without actually looking like you are wearing relaxing wear. With the right pieces, you can appropriately rock the workout wear to dinner, a party and even to work.
Choosing sweatpants: When it comes to choosing the style that is right for you, look to relaxed and form-fitting silhouettes that aren’t frumpy. Focus on pants with details that accentuate your personal style. You want each pair of sweats to feel like an extension of your wardrobe, not just pajama pants you have thrown on underneath your regular clothes.
Take a polished approach: You can sneak in sweatpants into your smart attire without looking lazy. Simply wear them with a classic blouse, a long sleeveless blazer to hide the waistband and a pair of high ankle booties to hide the ankle bands. No one will ever know your pants are sweats as you strut looking sophisticated. Anything bright or colorful will make you look too collegiate. Pick a muted color and a sliming pair with an adjustable drawstring that can be much more flattering.
Top your look off with a leather moto jacket or tailored blazer to give your outfit some added structure.
Strike a perfect balance between effortless and edgy by pairing your sweatpants with leather details like trendy boots.
Relax it down: For those who are not satisfied with just sweatpants, you can enjoy doing errands in a matching set, the sweat suit. Sweatsuits can be the epitome of athleisure chic, as long as you choose a modern cut and one with a tailored fit. Then, spruce it up with edgy accessories, like a belted backpack and super modern shades.
Embrace your inner Sporty Spice, and pair your track pants with a mesh pullover.
Master the weekend casual: Keep your sweats casual by pairing them with a loose t-shirt or knit. Or another way to go is to pair slouchy sweatpants with a button-down dress shirt and air jordans or perhaps, a bomber jacket and heels. Sweatpants can be as versatile as jeans, thanks to the flattering cuts, cool textures, and statement emblems. Or, you can work your sweatpants by going with multiple layers to your outerwear.
Make sweatpants the focus: If you are styling whimsical looking sweatpants, make sure you play with other aspects of your attire, like wear a matching or equally graphic top. Point being, your sweatpants must be the crucial element of your outfit. Be bold and do a little trend-blending, mixing sporty sweatpants with a sexy brocade bustier
Alternative choices: To give the illusion that you are not wearing sweats, find a pair that can pass for denim. You should also not be afraid to experiment with new trends — like high-waist sweatpants and pony-printed blouses. Sequin sweatpants are made for big nights out, and these shiny things are perfect for all those upcoming holiday parties, and are surprisingly comfortable. For the day, dress them down with casual basics like checkered shirts and flats.
