When it comes to fashion, we’re all led to believe that comfort and style simply do not mix. You wear your comfiest clothes when you’re lounging at home, when you’re working out or maybe when you’re running a quick errand while wearing sunglasses and a mask to totally disguise your face. When it comes time to flex your fashion muscles, comfort totally goes out the window, right?
It really doesn’t have to be like that. Sure, we love dressing up from time to time in pieces we would never wear for movie night at home, but that doesn’t mean that comfort and fashion can’t ever mix. If you buy the right piece and style it the right way, you — and everyone else — will see it in a whole new light. Yes, that even includes grey sweatpants!See it!
If you’re hesitant to take our word for it, what about if Sarah Jessica Parker were also behind the idea? The always-stylish actress, who will soon start filming Sex and the City sequel series And Just Like That… was recently photographed in New York City wearing baggy grey sweats of her own. She was at her SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker store and looked so comfy but city-chic in her grey bottoms and flowy, casual shirt. We were inspired!
After spending a bit of time browsing Amazon, we found a pair that channels SJP’s vibe. These pocketed jogger sweats totally captured the aesthetic we were going for. They’re super soft and stretchy with a loose fit, but the carefully constructed silhouette and the tapering just above the ankles really make an outfit look so much more put together than a typical pair of sweats!See it!
It’s not often that such a great pair of lounge pants can actually act as an outfit upgrader, but that really is what we have here, elasticized drawstring waistband and all. Wear these pants with a flowy blouse like Parker, or perhaps a cropped, off-the-shoulder top. Add on a pair of booties to really ramp things up. On cooler days, these pants would also look incredible with a comfy turtleneck and a pair of mules. The outfit possibilities open up even further when you realize they’re available in five other colors too!See it!
