Style Tips – New Ways to Wear Sweats

April 21, 2021

I’ve been thinking of some fun new types of posts to do and I’ve decided to try a monthly feature of sharing up-to-the minute styling tips! This time around I’m sharing trendy ways to style your sweats. I figured that after a year of pandemic dressing, you probably have a few joggers in your closet and could use some fun new ways to style them for going out and about in the world.

Idea #1 -Wear with a Trench Coat

One fresh way to style your sweats is with a cool trench. You can pair a hoodie with your trench. You can also pull together an outfit with a trench coat and a pair of sweatpants (wide or jogger style)!

Idea # 2 – Wear with a Blazer

I love a good blazer and you’ve probably seen me style my sweatpants with blazers on the blog before. This is a trend I can really get behind … the structure of a blazer with the expanding waistband of sweatpants! And look how chic it looks!

Idea #3 – Wear with Loafers

Loafers with joggers is new to me, but I really like it. It adds a classic and sophisticated twist to your sweat pants and helps you look more put together. Any cool loafers will do, but I’m a particular fan of Everlane’s Modern Loafer.

Idea # 4 – Wear with Sneakers … and Socks … that Show!

Okay, wearing sweats with sneakers isn’t a new idea. But it HAS been awhile before we’ve seen socks showing, right? Right now it’s perfectly fine (and rather cool) to show off those socks! I, for one, am thrilled. Is there anything more frustrating than no show socks?

I’m fairly sure that you’ve been adding sweats and joggers to your wardrobe all pandemic long, but just in case you’d like more, here are my favs:

Is there any particular trend or item you’d like styling ideas for? Just let me know!

Also on the blog lately: my natural hair transition, the return of the 90’s bodysuit, and some jeans that are as comfortable as sweatpants!
