With the fall semester in full swing, a full workload of studying for exams and writing papers often tempts us to make fashion choices based on comfort rather than style. Countless hours spent at the library seem to go hand-in-hand with bland sweatshirts and sweatpants; I’m no exception. Just because we want to be comfortable doesn’t mean we have to give up our sense of style. While I believe there is no way to make your favorite plaid pajama pants fashionable in public, you can still be comfortable and look pulled together in an easy pair of sweats.
This Fashionisto’s super cool look has completely changed my opinion on sweatpants. Styled with a few bold pieces, he transforms this comfy wardrobe staple from frumpy to fashionable. First, those boots. More unexpected than a sporty pair of sneakers, his leather buckled boots give the sweatpants an updated, edgy look.
Building on this rugged vibe, he layers up for the perfect fall ensemble. A neutral beige tee, denim chambray shirt and plaid outdoor vest play off each other with ease. Layers are such a great way to make any look more stylish and pulled together. The rich hues of this Fashionisto’s outfit create a cool color palette in contrast to his simple gray sweats. Finally, he accessorizes with a great pair of circular sunglasses and a cobalt blue cap to complete his look.
So while your stress levels may be at an all-time high this week, don’t sweat it. As this Fashionisto proves, a simple pair of sweatpants can easily look fashion forward and keep you comfortable.
