Sweatpants may have once been something to wear to bed or to lounge around the house in, but that’s no longer the case.You can easily dress sweats up and make them look a lot more stylish than you ever thought they could be, creating an outfit you can rock just about anywhere.
So,my team and I put together 7 stylish ways you can rock your sweatpants.
- Choose sweatpants that are fitted rather than baggy
If you’re looking to dress up your look, the fit of your sweats can make a huge difference. Baggy sweats may be cozy, but they can be more difficult to dress up.On the other hand, fitted pairs, like leggings or joggers, will be easier to style
- Pair them with a trendy coat or blazer.
Instead of reaching for a sweatshirt when heading outside, wear your sweatpants with a blazer or coat that will immediately make them look more put together. Think: a belted trench, a leather jacket, or a more casual denim jacket.
- Take some time to style other parts of your look, like your hair.
When you’re trying to dress up sweatpants, the rest of your look can make quite a difference. An outfit of sweats, sneakers, and a simple top may look more casual if your hair is in a messy bun or loose ponytail.But if your hair is more styled, it can make the rest of your outfit look more dressed up and intentional
- Wear them with high heels instead of sneakers
The quickest way to dress up a pair of sweats is to change up your shoes. Pumps or other types of heeled shoes will automatically elevate your look and, from there, you just have to pick a stylish top and the right accessories.
- Try sticking to a monochrome palette.
If you want to keep things simple, choose pieces that match for a monochromatic look.An all-black look is always stylish and you can even pair gray pants with a gray top in a slightly different shade to keep your look simple and streamlined.
- Pair your sweatpants with bright colors.
A monochromatic look is trendy and cool, but bright colors can dress up your look just as much. Pair plain sweatpants with a sweater or top in a color that demands attention, like bright yellow or red.
- When in doubt, wear black joggers.
They can be worn to work, when you go out, or when you head to a party, and, in most cases, no one will even notice you’re wearing sweats.Joggers look great with sweaters or silky shirts tucked into them, plus a pair of heels or ankle boots will really kick the look up a notch. They can also be paired with cropped tops or sneakers
