If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably already mastered the art of wearing leggings to events more formal than they were originally intended. (I’m pretty much always cold, so leggings under a dress is my staple eight months out of the year.) But once you’ve mastered the fancy leggings look, here’s a new one to try. Sweatpants to a holiday party. I mean, haven’t we all had nights where we just wanted to stay home in sweats instead of going out?
The secret starts with choosing the right sweatpants. You want to get a pair of joggers – something that tapers down to the ankle – and be sure to choose a high quality fabric. (And pretty please, nothing with logos or letters!) From there, it’s a matter of pairing your sweats with a more formal top, heels (or super dressy flats) and a great statement necklace to draw attention away from the fact that you’re technically wearing sweatpants.
And the best part? Not only is wearing sweatpants a cozier alternative to that fancy party skirt, but dressing up a pair of joggers is a next level style trick that will literally make you the most stylish person in the room. It’s a total win-win!
PS. A great statement necklace takes even the most casual style to the next level. My one of a kind Contra Composition necklace looks stunning with everything from holiday party outfits to your favorite t-shirt. And don’t let the big size fool you, it’s actually incredibly comfortable! (And available now in my online store.)
