HOW TO DRESS UP PLUS SIZE SWEATPANTS

Hi there curvy ladies,

I am a firm believer that fashion doesn’t have be uncomfortable. Your favorite platform heels may take some time to break in, that annoying dress or skirt that you have to keep pulling down, or your Spanx have a tendency of rolling down; this is all apart of fashion. However there are always loop holes.

This year, it looks like comfort is being brought back into dressing. With the budding sweatpant aka jogger pant trend. What woman doesn’t love a comfortable pair of sweatpants? I know I do, whenever I can replace my jeans for a comfy pair of pants. I’m so here for it!

So, the question is, can you make sweatpants look polished and cute oppose to sloppy and lazy? Why, yes you can. How exactly do you dress up sweatpants? When shopping for sweatpants to dress up, here is what to look for:

  • Tapered  legs, which means that the legs fit tighter.
  • Avoid workout pants that are fleece or with an elastic hem.
  • Dressy sweatpants usually come in a light weight jersey knit not a heavy cotton.
  • Fitted hem cuff that wraps firmly around your ankle.

When dressing up your sweatpants wear them like you would with your favorite jeans or harem pants. The key is your shoes. Take this opportunity to wear dressy sandals and heels.  You can pair them with a blazer, simple top or a dressy top. You could possibly get away with this look on dress down Fridays.

Happy Shopping Ladies!!!
