Comfy and frumpy are two words that can come to mind when describing an outfit that involves sweats. You guys know that I’m all about being comfy. If you are a fan of sweatshirts (and cozy-wear) but haven’t tried the sweatshirt dress yet, you gotta get on the bandwagon. Seriously, it’s like friggin’ wearing a hug — after all, you’re basically enveloping yourself in a shapeless warm cocoon. Okay okay, so that is probably not the chicest description of an outfit and where the frumpy connotation comes from. But I promise you, you can totally get all the comfort without the frump. Just follow these hacks…
1. Pair with a sleek leather jacket
Go vegan faux-leather if you must, but pairing the look with bold and buttery black leather is the easiest way to elevate a sweats.
2. Let your accessories do the talking
This is definitely a time where you want your accessories to shine. I decide to pair mine with my bright red Marc Jacobs bag and sky-high Rag & Bone boots. Don’t be fooled by the height, because these boots are actually pretty comfy. Chunkiness is key when it comes to comfortable heels. But you certainly don’t need to go with a heels if that’s not your thing. There’s no point in wearing the comfiest sweats if you’re feet are going to hate you. You can also go with flat boots, or even white sneakers as long as they’re super clean and free of stains.
3. Your make-up game needs to be on point
Whether you’re going for the “no make-up” make-up look, or bold red lips, it should be flawless. You want to be comfy like you’re still in bed. But you don’t want to actually look like you just rolled out of bed.
