Mix It Up Monday: Sweat Pants

 We all own a pair of sweats that we love..and never want to change out of…but who says you have to? On this week’s Mix It Up Monday I show you how to take your sweats from day to night. When shopping for a good pair of stylish sweat pants make sure you get a par that is slightly tapered around the ankles, and a drop crotch is always good.

LOOK 1: Daytime

Sweatpants, fashionable? Yup. During that “time of the month” when I all I want to do is wear sweats, but unfortunately I have a life, I still wear my sweats! I simply make them more stylish by adding a little bit of “glitz”. Adding denim, or leather, instantly gives a daytime (and not bedtime) feel. Pair your sweats with cute ballet flats or sandals and you are ready to [comfortably] face the day.

LOOK 2: Nighttime 

Who would ever think to wear sweatpants out.. at night? Ummmm…me. Bar, dinner, date you can’t get out of but you feel bloated? Throw on sweats!! Here are a few suggestions when wearing your sweats at night:

  • Wear heels!!!!!! A stripy and/or metallic shoe will instantly dress up ANYTHING
  • Bold Lip. Make sure your makeup is nighttime appropriate
  • Dressy top. Anything sparkly or embellished will work. I would even try a bustier with sweats.
  • Carry a clutch. Nothing takes an outfit from day-to-night like a clutch. Any other bag screams “daytime”
