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!
About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is ME talking to YOU, other middle-aged women who are over 40, but not over fashion. We still want to look beautiful and stylish. We still want to have fun with trends. And we don’t need anyone giving us rules, because we’re all different. This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, including style ideas, tips, trends, and inspiration. I know how liking the way we look can translate into confidence and energy. I know we have so much life left to live and so much adventure ahead of us. Let’s show the world you’re never too old to have fun and look fierce!
I’m not always an “it bag” girl. Sometimes I feel that the new cool bag trend will be over before I know it and the hefty price tag isn’t worth the short shelf life.
BUT, when a fun new bag trend is around $200 (rather than $2K), I start to consider it! Especially when it’s a BIG bag, and not some ridiculous teeny little thing that I could never actually carry much in. And especially when it’s the beginning of the trend and I see this one having some “legs” …. So I treated myself to the latest transparent Staud bag and I’m loving it.
Spring is here and the trends are fun! I’m sure you’re starting to see transparent handbags all over the place. The trend is hot and Staud is making the IT bags right now. They’re fabulous and affordable! Well, way more affordable than most IT bags! I had been eyeing the bags for awhile, then when Staud came out with this pretty shiny garnet shade, I had to have it!
The one good thing about the bad weather lately is that I’ve had chances to wear the fun coats I got for NYFW that I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to wear once I got back to California. Last weekend, I went to San Francisco for a 100% Pure beauty event and decided to deck myself out in stars!
