SWEATPANTS & HOW I STYLE THEM


It's way past my bed time but my brain isn't tired a bit. I can't quite comprehend how they work so I'm stuck here at 1am studying and at the same time writing a post. It's such an awful timing at the moment. Finals are already here. I've had 4 so far and I got 2 more to go. Internally I'm dying but hey it'll be worth it at the end. If I pass all of them of course. Fingers crossed.

Some time ago my sister and I went to Italy and we visited a department store where we bought ourselves some goodies. I knew I were going to buy something even though I decided a long time ago that I wouldn't spend money on unecessary items. Of course they had sales so I already knew that my plan is going to be ruined. I bought a few fashion pieces which I am really happy about and they are definitely something that I wouldn't choose right away. One of them are the sweatpants on the pictures.

Maja knows me and she also knows I would never go out in public in sweatpants unless I'm going to have a relaxed walk. This piece of clothing is something that changed my whole perspective on fashion. I could never wear sweatpants anywhere. I'm just that type of girl that likes to get all dressed up and puts some effort into her outfits. I always wear jeans, fancy pants or dresses, but never sweatpants. When I saw these I already noticed that they were different. First of all the colour of them is amazing. Navy blue is one of my favourite colours when buying clothes and when I saw these pants I immediately grabbed them. The second thing that I love about this item is the material. It's so soft and it almost feels as real silk. Definitely not your regular type of sweatpants. I just went straight ahead and tried them on. They fitted me perfectly. The top to go with it is also from that store. It was actually Maja who was trying it on at the time, but I noticed it would look great with my bottoms because of the colour of the stripes. When I tried the whole thing on, it was immediately sold and taken back home with me.

I am aware that sweatpants are already a fashion statement for some time now, but I just can't grasp the idea of people walking around in sweatpants and looking good. I guess I had to do my own testing. I see a lot of fashion influencers wearing them and looking absolutely amazing and now I see that it's not that hard to style them youself.

When I style these pants I definitely like to connect the top with the bottom. In this case I connected the colour of the top with the stripes at the side of the pants. You can also have a darker top - a navy blue one or even black. I would definitely recommend to keep it simple with the upper piece. I wouldn't add too many different patterns, but I would definitely encourage you to mix materials. Here, I immediately knew that I had to keep it simple with the top because pants were already somewhat shiny and I didn't want to overdo it by adding another shiny material.

All in all I think if you have 'fancy' sweatpants, you don't have to put too much effort into styling them. The pants themselves do the trick. All you need to do is find a top that suits you and doesn't overshine your amazing new piece of clothing. I'm super excited that I got them because I learned something new and from now on I will definitely not be afraid of getting a new pair of joggers ;) There is also a big plus to this purchase. I mixed comfort with style and that is one of my main rules when it comes to styling my outfits every day. To feel good in your outfit helps you feel good  about yourself as well and the level of confidence just goes as high as possible.

Hope you liked this post. Have a great day ahead.
