STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Sweatpants for the Day

January 13th, 2016 at 2:00am

New classes with a new attitude to conquer perfectly describes the start of a new semester. With an addition of a new year, we experience the stereotypical resolutions like telling yourself that you are going to dress up every day. All I can say is that I’ve been there, done that and only lasted five days. I hate to break it to you, but when 8:00 a.m. classes exist, it is difficult to find the energy to get ready in the mornings. It’s hard to wak up after a long night of studying looking as graceful as Sandy from Grease (pre-bad girl stage, of course). To lighten up the dark mood, there is a solution that this Fashionista brought to action.

What comes to mind when you see a pair of gray sweats? They’re not necessarily a garment one would see on the covers of Vogue. On the other hand, this Fashionista brought the cut-offs into a new spectrum of style. She teaches a lovely lesson to embrace the sweatpants instead of treating them like a side garment.

How do you elevate a pair of sweats? Easy! This Fashionista styled this pair by combining them with a sundry of elements. She adds a sheer top for a mysterious touch, a green African-styled backpack for a pop of color and a pair of shiny shoes for the win. All of these various elements create a vision of hip wonder.

But, wait! Don’t forget your coat! As a caring Style Guru, I advise a functional coat to protect you from the cold weather. For example, this Fashionista is wearing a Joule UK jacket that functions in the name of warmth. It is always good to keep a winter jacket on hand even if the winter season is warm and abnormal.

Even though I discovered this Fashionista on the streets of Detroit, she will be in England studying music at Falmouth University. With her interest in experimenting with jazz, hip-hop, electronic and acoustic, she will be creating a musical euphoria for our auditory souls. Interested? She has a SoundCloud named Dayvicious for you to fall in love with! I believe it is a treasure for the ears.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK?  “It is now your obligation to take a pair of sweats and create your own masterpiece. The beautiful in sweats reference didn’t die, it was just overshadowed. To follow the sweat pant trend, it is important to mix the mood up and accessorize wisely.”
