Yes, you’ve read correctly. There is a way to actually dress up sweatpants and I will show you. Still not convinced? Keep reading.
Sweatpants are typically worn to workout, run errands or for comfort. However with our ever-changing fashion cycle Athleisure has introduced a way to wear your leggings, sweatshirts or track pants to more formal or business like occasions.
Rule #1 Your coordinating pieces should be dressy.
Remember the goal is to dress up sweatpants not dress down. I choose an H&M tuxedo blazer. The wide leg grey sweatpants from Adidas were too long, so I decided to wear a pair of black patent leather heels.
Rule #2 Give a wow moment when you take your blazer off!
A frilled poplin corporate blue Zara shirt looks great. Remember you are dressing up the sweatpants. It looks like I have on a simple blue dress shirt. However when I take the blazer off there is that aha moment.
Rule #3 Have fun in outfit!!!
Take a selfie, share with your friends…. it’s not everyday you will wear sweatpants and heels.
