5 FRESH WAYS TO WEAR SWEATPANTS
By Eleanor Dunne, 4 January 2019
It’s January, and comfy clothes (preferably with expandable waistbands) are top of the sartorial agenda. Hello, sweatpants. Once reserved for couch potatoes and gym fiends, joggers are now a seriously stylish choice that can be worn anywhere. Trust us – all it takes is the right styling. Here are five ways to wear them now.
You may never have thought of mixing a blazer, joggers and heels, but this look makes a strong case for a smart sweats 'fit. Depending on the vibe of your office, you could even try this for your 9-5. Wearing sweats to work – how could you resist?
We were thrilled when it became socially acceptable to wear matching sweats outside of the house. This laidback vibe is your new weekend brunch-and-errands uniform – just add chunky trainers. A chain-strap bag and metal-framed specs elevate the sophistication nicely.
A pair of adidas popper pants will get a lot of outings in 2019. For winter, pair them with a tailored coat and a hoodie like this 90s-inspired street-styler, while a crop top will work nicely for summer. A logo bum bag only adds to the throwback vibes. Sporty Spice eat your heart out.
Thanks to the YEEZY effect, khaki sweatpants have been a serious style option for a good few years now. And how good do they look with an oversized blazer, a low-cut top and sock boots? This one might even get a night on the town once February comes. We're in love.
Satiny sweatpants are a strong, 90s-inspired alternative to the cotton jogger. This street-styler brings the look into the 21st century with a cropped jacket and lace-up platform boots. The perfect mix of cool and comfy. See ya, January blues.
