Style & Fashion

December 12, 2019

I am pretty sure that I have gotten the most wear from these pants than any other piece in my closet this season. see exhibit A.
They go with everything from structured jackets and blouses to t-shirts to athleisure sweatshirts. I fell in love with this sweatshirt at madewell but for the price tag had to make it work for more than just casual Fridays. I tried on a few different combos but I think I figured out the secret to mixing in pieces of athleisure into your wardrobe.

Outfit details:
Sweatshirt: Madewell, Large Sale
Pant: Madewell, 12 Sale

Shoes: Tory Burch, Sale

Here are my to do’s for mixing athleisure into your work wardrobe.

  1. I think with athleisure it’s important to mix in one solid piece like the sweatshirt in with your wardrobe. The thing I liked about this sweatshirt is the sleeve detail has a little big of puckering at the shoulder which helps make it a little less casual.
  2. Pair it with something structured like these pleated wide leg pants. These pants are wide leg but the top is shaped with pleats which gives them a little more formal look.
  3. Go wild with a statement jacket. I am obsessed with this leopard fur coat. It’s a bit crazy but I am surprised at how much leopard goes with. See 3 ways to wear a leopard dress here.
  4. Don’t forget about accessories. Accessories elevate everything. From a formal handbag to velvet shoes a difference in texture and bling will always elevate a piece of casual clothing.

Here are some things that I find didn’t work with trying to dress up this sweatshirt.

  1. Bright colors just really tried to overpower it and made it look like I was going to the gym.
  2. Don’t add more than one piece. For me, It looked like I was heading to the gym.
  3. Don’t forget to dress for you! At the end of the day this style is about what YOU like and what YOU feel comfortable in.
