How to Wear Sweatpants: Chic Edition

Sunday, November 24, 2013

The holidays are coming up very quickly, and if your mom is anything like mine, she expects you to dress up. And seeing as how the average American consumes 4,500 calories on Thanksgiving, I don't want to be in a sequin corset all day! So I have devised a plan that allows me to wear sweatpants without looking like a slob.

These tricks also apply for any other time you're just feeling too lazy for regular pants. There are so many cute sweatpants out there right now too! I knew this was going to happen eventually, I mean it started with the harem pants, then it got more practical with the slouchy pant (which I love), and then according to Kanye West, he invented the leather jogging pant, so its only natural that we would have couture inspired sweatpants... right? I don't know if that math adds up, but hey I am game for any excuse to wear stretchy pants for the holidays!

I know this post was a little silly, and you're probably thinking I'm crazy for even proposing the idea of trying to make sweatpants fashionable... but you have to admit, it's not a bad idea if you could pull it off. I only own one pair of sweat pants, but you can bet I'll be trying to make them more socially acceptable in public.

Funny you asked...I just wore a leopard printed pair to work last week with a chunky cardigan and ankle boots! I think when paired with the right top/footwear/accessories it definitely can be done. You also have to have the right kind of sweatpants....there's a fine line between what works and what doesn't.

I really like ALL of them. Seriously. I never buy sweatpants because they aren't my style, but you've done an awesome job here!

PS How do you make the... graphics, I guess you'd call them? Like, the pictures overlapping, the arrows, the text, all that? It looks really great.
