Want to dress up your sweatpants? Pair them with a cropped cardi, a bustier top or a sleek bodysuit! Finishing touch: cool accents like combat boots & chic handbag.
Sweatpants are the new jeans, figuratively and literally! Because if you want to dress up your sweatpants, basically all you need to do is treat them like jeans, and wear them with whatever you normally wear with your favorite pair of denim! I’m talking cute tops, structured blazers, chic handbags and fashionable boots.
The easiest way to give your casual sweatpants a polished vibe is by pairing them with elevated tops like bustier tops or sleek bodysuits. Both of these top styles have that chic, pulled together appeal yet they are not overly dressy.
Another option is of course cardigans. Whether you wear a cropped or full length cardigan is dependent entirely on you, although high-waisted sweatpants are a perfect bottom to pair with cropped tops, but I would suggest going for a more form-fitting cardigan style. Normally, sweatpants have a bit more volume to them, which is why pairing them with a form-fitting, sleek-looking top creates such a flatter, polished silhouette.
