In years past, #NoJeansJanuary might be seen as an invitation to finally incorporate that ‘dress pants with sneakers’ look you’ve been wanting to try into your regular rotation. Or wear those corduroys that you’ve had forever but continuously pass over in favor of you go-to denim.
Obviously after the year 2020 everything has changed, and we’re taking it in stride. If you’re like us, you’ve probably worn sweatpants more in the last 300 day than any hard pants. Things aren’t changing in the next month, so we’re here to celebrate that and take it up a notch. This week, we teamed up with the laid-back, California beach chic brand, Faherty to show you how to wear their Cutback Sweatpant five ways.
How should sweatpants fit?
When shopping for tailored sweats that you can wear for comfort but also FASHION, look for a pair that tapers through the leg, ending in an elastic cuff around your ankle. These pants shouldn’t bunch at the top of your shoe. In fact, if they end a little above your ankle, that’s cool.
The fit should feel comfortable if not loose at your thighs and crotch. These are sweats, not running tights, so we shouldn’t be able to see everything you’re working with, if you know what I’m saying.
Below, check out five men’s sweatpants outfits to wear:
SG Says: Elevate the cozy vibes of sweats with an ivory turtleneck and coordinating sneakers.
SG Says: Return your sweats to their traditional sporty greatness with a henley, fleece jacket and white sneakers.
SG Says: Get hygge with it in a fair isle sweater, classic green parka and shearling slip-ons that transform your living room into a Nordic wonderland.
SG Says: Have you been tasked with shoveling the driveway? Turn it into your rugged man runway with a classic flannel and sturdy lug-sole boots.
SG Says: Solid sweats provide the perfect balancing act for major pattern play up top, so go wild with layered prints. And by now you can probably tell that sneakers are a great pairing for sweats.
