How to Make Your Sweatpants Look Good
It’s that time of year. The mornings are so chilly, you don’t want to put anything on other than sweats. I call it cozy season…
…and sweatpants season. Yes, leggings are up there in the cozy season must-haves, but sweatpants are in a league of comfort all of their own.
But wearing sweatpants doesn’t mean you have to look like you just rolled out of bed and took the blanket with you.
I’m sharing three ways to make your sweatpants look good! You can utilize each method individually or combine all 3 together!
Pile on the Accessories and Lipstick
Imagine the outfit below without jewelry and lipstick. Total snooze-fest! But because I layered chunky gold necklaces and stacks of beaded bracelets, I look so much more exciting and put-together. I added lipstick to complete the look, and I think it really works.
My bracelets and pendant necklace are from Powerbeads by Jen, a local jewelry designer who believes in the power of gemstones to promote inner peace and healing. Use code ENVOGUE15 at checkout to save! They make wonderful gifts!
Pair Your Sweatpants with an Off-the-Shoulder Cropped Cardigan
Don’t you think the OTS look adds a huge stylish element to a sweatpants outfit? It literally takes any level of frumpy out of the outfit formula. Be sure to keep the cardigan on the shorter side so that you maintain your shape.
Go All-Out Sporty with a Varsity Cardigan and Coordinating Cap
Sometimes, you just need some 90s throwback vibes in your life. I just love a good varsity cardigan! It allows you to achieve a sporty look without wearing a shapeless team logo hoodie.
I added an Eagles cap from a local boutique because it’s sporty and complements the green trim on the cardigan.
Do be sure that the sweatpants you choose aren’t old and ratty. Holes can be cool, but not in sweatpants. Choose a polished, neutral pair of sweats in a flattering silhouette that is on the higher-waisted side. This ensures that you won’t look sloppy!
You can make your sweatpants look good by using one of these styling suggestions at a time or using them all at once! Whichever you choose, you will be a casual chic comfy queen!
