Dressed Up Sweatpants

David Michael blazer (similar – on sale!)
Zara t-shirt (similar here and here)
Helmut Lang x Uniqlo sweatpants (similar)
Christian Louboutin “Iriza” 100mm pumps
Bauble Bar collar necklace
Chanel wallet on chain

When I bought these Helmut Lang x Uniqlo sweatpants, I thought I’d try dressing them up, since I already have other frumpy sweats that I change into immediately upon getting home from work. Last time, I styled them in the chillest way possible since I was spending a weekend in the woods (post here). However, the foldover detail and cuffed ankles make these look more like trousers than sweats. So this time, I dressed them up with a slouchy blazer, killer pumps, and gold accessories.

    This is such a great look! I want those sweats so badly! I love the way you styled them and those Loubs too! Don't you just love to be comfy but still make it fancy? That's my favorite thing!

      It almost feels like cheating to be wearing sweatpants out in public and attempting to make it look pulled together… but I'm not complaining about the "sporty chic" trend 😉

    I have these sweatpants too! Except the way I style them is hubby's shirt, mix-matched socks, couch and netflix.

    I recently just picked up a pair of joggers and it's great that I found some inspiration! You made a casual look into a high glamour trend. Love it!

    No, but this is actually too perfect for words! I love all of the minimal touches you added as well, like that necklace and Chanel purse. Always so obsessed with your style and you are so gorgeous!

    ooh! I love the whole styling sweatpants thing. I have these floral sweatpants that I love to style with blazers and dress shirts, but you're making me want to buy more! and your backdrop really contributes to the edginess of your look. can I just applaud how you always have perfect locations to shoot? seriously, I envy you!

    I'm obsessed with this look on you! You look amazing in this sweat pant and heels combination. Love it!! I love that comment about how you'd try dressing them up since you already have a pair you change into right away when you get home. Ha! Too good.
