How to Wear Chic Sweatpants
I’ve seen chic sweatpants happen before, mostly on Pinterest though. My question was could your average pair of sweatpants look chic even for those of us with hips and a boot-tay! These are your run of the mill Target sweatpants. The kind you bought and never expected them to make it any further than your front door. The same pair you never expected to pair with your chicest pointed pumps. But alas, here I am standing on the side of my house with my best leathers and deepest blacks in honor of making chic sweatpants possible.
The key to success? Pair it with all your high end pieces. If you get to slack in the pants department, you’ve got to step up your game in all other regards. Think polished accessories, bags and shoes. Where would I wear this to you ask? I don’t think I’m brave enough to rock this at work just yet. I think an afternoon-evening coffee meeting would be fitting. My advice would be to go for a darker pair of sweats, for a more sophisticated feel.

See the little strap peeking out of my top? It’s a new favorite bra from UO. I can’t stand super padded bras with crazy colors and patterns. They’re just too much for me. This piece looks like art. I have a link above if you want to see it in full. So give me the low down, do you think sweatpants can be chic? I was struggling to come up with places to wear them to. If you have ideas, leave me a comment.
