Because: Sweatpants. Who doesn’t love a good comfy pant?! I know I do. And no, I don’t think we wear them enough to work. And yes, I advocate (dress code/atmosphere permitting) that we experiment with comfy AND work-appropriate sweat-pant options like the ones your see here …
Now! To be clear, I did not wear this exact outfit to work. The crop top is a little too much for those of us trying to be professional. However, I did wear it to brunch, and that went over well.
When it comes to sweatpants, I try to find drawstring ones – so I can, you know, turn them into high-waisted dreams and pair them with a crop top. I also advocate for a jogger. A jogger sweat-pant classes up the outfit by adding a tailored look.
Throw on some neon sunglasses, matching scarf and basic white kicks. And voila! Here is today’s outfit: sweatpants and tennis shoes from H&M, scarf is a scarf a friend of mine once tied around my neck that I never gave back, sunglasses are Forever21 and the crop to is from Urban Outfitters.
