How She’d Wear It with Style and Cheek – Fancy Sweatpants

HSWI July 2014

I’ve gotten so into the athletic trend that I wish this month was longer, but we’ll end this month with an oldie but a goodie, your good ol’ sweatpants. Well, kinda your old sweatpants. More like luxe sweatpants because the 2nd pair aren’t exactly sweatpants, they’re loose fitting pants with silky fabric and a sweatpant fit. Who wouldn’t like that?

Here’s what’s up: you can wear sweats with heels if you treat the rest of your outfit like you aren’t wearing sweatpants. This means your top and accessories need to be on the nicer side. However, same goes for flats. This is clothing for leaving the house, not for sitting around the house. The other pieces don’t have to be extravagant, just make sure you go beyond what you wear to watch Netflix all day.

How She'd Wear It with Style and Cheek - Fancy Sweatpants

1. MADEWELL Princesse Tamtam™ Sublime Bra

2. Ray-Ban Rayban Aviator Craft With Leather Detail Sunglasses

3. Steve Madden ‘Stecy’ Sandal

4. Moorea Seal Tiny Arrow Earrings

5. Current/Elliott Loopback Jersey Track Pants

6. DAY Birger Et Mikkelsen Day Embroidered Cutout Cotton-Jersey Sweater

8. Madewell Transport Tote – English Saddle

For real sweatpants like these I think it’s important to pick a pair that aren’t too baggy, especially if you’re going to be wearing heels. You want the sweats to act as an unexpected twist instead of looking messy. This outfit has a subdued, natural color palette which makes recreating a look like this pretty easy. Just add some delicate gold jewelry and a pair of cool girl sunglasses. As for the bra, I’ve been watching a lot of Dexter so I thought I’d channel a little Hannah McKay, queen of black bras with see-thru shirts.

4. Coach Madison Foldover Crossbody In Leather

9. Steve Madden ‘Elusion’ Half D’Orsay Flat

I’ve seen a few people tucking fitted striped shirts into their loose pants and it looks really cute. Initially I thought heels for this look but figured if you have really sleek, pointy toed flats then that’s just as good, and much more comfortable. Keep up the theme of comfortable luxe with a leather crossbody bag, chunky rings, and gorgeous tortoiseshell sunglasses. The outfits I styled this one after had massive statement necklaces but the neckline of those shirts were higher, so if you wear a shirt with a lower neckline like the one above then go for a smaller piece that still packs a punch.
