Dressed-Up Sweatpant

By Jen Pinkston

The SweatsuitIt’s no secret that these last two months of the year are jam-packed with events, engagements, and errand-running galore.  I often talk about the need for looks that can play chameleon with my ever-changing schedule, and the “sweat pant for day” trend is perfect for running around, grabbing a quick bite, an afternoon meeting, or squeezing in some holiday shopping.  You can call them joggers, active pants or whatever other trendy name they’re going by these days, but they’re ultimately sweatpants… and as a result, errand-running has never been more comfortable or chic!

Here’s what you might consider when wearing this trend:  Juxtapose the casual bottoms with a dressier top like this silk layered tank and always wear with heels.  This is no sneakers allowed territory unless you’re actually working out.  For fall, top with a blazer or leather jacket to elevate the look even more.
