The phrase “stylish sweatpants” may sound like an oxymoron, but it’s a real thing and the look is totally attainable.
As a New Yorker, I’m constantly looking for hacks that’ll somehow transform my mix-matched outfits into a fashionable, yet secretly comfortable wardrobe. During one of my late-night Google searches, I found that sweatpants can be dressed up or down—whether I’m headed to the office or hanging out with my girlfriends. Here’s what I learned.
Fitted sweatpants can make a world of difference.
Baggy sweats may be comfy, but they’re not exactly chic. Fitted sweats, however, are easy to style and feel just as cozy.
Pair your sweats with a blazer.
Instead of grabbing your favorite sweatshirt and running out the door, try pairing your sweats with a trendy coat or a blazer. A leather jacket or casual denim jacket will give your look a more dressed up feel.
Opt for heels instead of sneakers.
Sometimes the quickest way to elevate an outfit is to add a pair of strappy heels or dramatic ankle boots to the mix.
