Typically when I think about sweatpants, thoughts of Netflix, a top knot and a bottle of wine follows.

Then one day I got the bright idea to rock my fave sweats in broad daylight, with some heels and my hair and make-up semi-done. I needed some higher waisted pants for a casual brunch date and thanks to my growing pile of laundry, my options were limited.

Thankfully these acid-wash sweats from People of Leisure had just arrived and I have no shame in my game, so I pulled them on and headed out the door. Not only was I super comfortable, I got a ton of compliments on my look. The cool thing about this look is you can actually enjoy your destination instead of spending the whole time dreaming about the second you can put your hair up and your sweats on, because you’re already there! #winning You can even get some custom sweats if you want to be truly team sweats! Sites like https://imprint.com/shop/custom-apparel/sweats/hoodies can provide that for you.

The acid wash finish is a nice touch because it simultaneously adds some edge to the look but the detail also elevates the sweats from your PJs. Don’t forget to scroll down to shop the look and to check out a roundup below of some of my fave ways to complete a dressier look when I’m rocking sweatpants!
