Can Jewelry Dress Up Sweatpants?

Designer sweatpants that are super expensive

Boy if only this was true I would be wearing sweatpants every day of the week. I’m having one of those days where I really don’t want to put anything on more constricting than a pair of sweatpants. Admit it, we all have these days every now and then and I’m having one today. My life has been pretty much go go go go go for the past couple of months and my brain feels like it’s going to implode.


Runway looks that use elastic waist pants
This is kind of a bummer since I haven’t finished inventory and the Christmas selling season is right around the corner. All this work has me thinking about how I wish there was a way to make sweatpants look professional. This got me to thinking if sweatpants ever look professional in any situation and I think I may have found a loophole. Loophole number one, it depends on the cut of the sweatpants. Loophole number two, have a body like a model. I might be able to do number one but a body like a model is out of reach.


InStyle Magazines article, wish I could see the brand
I found a clip from InStyle Magazine whereby they took a pair of grey sweatpants and styled it three different ways. According to them you can wear a pair of sweats as long as you jazz up the casual style with “tailored separates and eye-catching accessories.”  Unfortunately, try as I might I couldn’t get the brand name off the article, it was too small. What I did glean from it was the sweatpants in question seem to run around $108.00. Don’t know if these actually qualify as sweatpants.


I might be able to pull off the look on the end if only I had the body
It appears the best way to style a pair of sweatpants is start with pants that are form fitting. This kind of defeats the whole easy lazy elastic pants thing. There are many examples of terry cloth pants, form fitting, Capri style worn with heeled sandals and fabulous blouses. Apparently there is much more emphasis placed on everything else you’re wearing. Jewelry still appears casual, maybe a menswear watch and a bracelet made of leather with studs. Don’t go over the top, keep it simple. Now I just have to find those sweatpants and not for $108.00.
Sorry Dakota, this is what I am trying to avoid
