How to (Semi) Dress Up Sweatpants

It’s always funny to look back at how my style has evolved over the years. There was a time in college when I used to wear bow ties to class. Over time I got lazy and started wearing whatever was easy and comfortable. I may have felt comfortable in my sweats, but I looked like a scrub. Now that sportswear is trendy, it’s easier to find tailored sweats. Tailored sweats are that perfect balance between looking put together and feeling comfortable.

To dress up my Banana Republic sweats, I’ve paired them with my go-to turtleneck sweater. I don’t think a look is complete without at least three pieces, which is why I’ve topped it off with a denim jacket, which I scored from Forever 21 for under $50. This outfit is perfect for running errands, but dressy enough to causally meet-up with friends. Check out the slideshow below to shop.
