How I Wear Sweatpants in Public

Saturday, September 18, 2010
Are sweatpants still okay in public? Because all I can think of are college girls wearing baggy sweatpants with a matching sweatshirt, uggs, and a messy bun. THAT is not okay...

I got these yoga pants for "working out." They are so comfortable I don't ever want to take them off. I only wish they had pockets. I paired these sweats with a fitted ruffle shirt and my motorcycle jacket because I'm hardcore. I like the mix of edgy, feminine, and casual.

  1. Hardcore ftw. :D

    I love this outfit, especially your motorcycle jacket! This is the way to rock the sweatpants. (And definitely not the college girl way, which I unfortunately have to see daily.)

  2. this is perfection. i just bought some new cropped sweats like this that i wear every morning and then sadly take off. i have been thinking of pairing them with a loose button up. we'll see how it goes.

  25. Darn, the first draft of my guest post on beauty had a section on what beautiful girls wear. It said something like, "dresses, skirts, pants, shorts and sweats". But the thing was soooo long I had to take parts out.

    Oh well, as least you're proving it! have a wonderful Sunday.

  28. I definitely like the mix with the motorcycle jacket, but I don't know if I'm willing to do it myself. Of cousre, I would have to own a pair of sweatpants first.

    Chic on the Cheap

    Also, I'm trying to grow out my bangs so can you stop with the super cute bangs for a while? Just wear a headband or a hat. It's making me want to cut mine again. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Haha, now I want to put sweatpants and uggs on an run to that groceries store next door!
    You rock those pants dear! They look so chic, not even like sweatpants anymore. I think that's because they're cropped. And the leather jacket is perfect for this look!
