If there’s one thing about fall and winter fashion that we love, it’s the opportunity to wear sweatpants — both in and out of the house. While lounging in coord sets is an obvious pastime for all of us, knowing what to wear with sweatpants so that you still feel stylish is something of an art. The best way to approach working the cozy wardrobe essential into your everyday street style is to add tailored basics that provide structure in contrast to your sweats.
An oversize pinstripe blazer, for example, works well with a pair of gray sweatpants and a sleek lace bodysuit layered underneath. Finish the outfit with heels, a chunky chainlink choker, and a mini bag, and you’re instantly ready for a night out. On the other hand, you can take the preppy route for daytime by popping the collar of your button-down out from under your sweatsuit and accessorizing with Mary Janes, tortoise sunglasses, and a pastel messenger bag.
Of course, there are so many more ways to dress up your sweatpants, but we’ve rounded up our 10 favorite looks to pull off in a pinch ahead. Scroll through for some top-notch street-style inspiration, then scour a few pairs of top-rated sweatpants currently available that would easily fit into any of these ensembles.
