I went to a Catholic high school and the first thing that comes to mind thinking back to being a "Catholic high school student" is that uniform every student needs to wear. Yes, there were some advantages to having a uniform, like not having to think of outfits in the morning... but the biggest downside for me was that the uniform was never comfy! I love comfort and coziness and not wearing khaki pants!
University is great because you can pretty much wear whatever you want and let your personal style shine through your outfits. I like to present myself well, but my desire for comfy clothes hasn't changed. I try to find ways to make loose and comfortable clothes look half decent, so I thought I'd share a sweat-pants-outfit with you guys!
I loved this ensemble for my Mondays when I had 7 hours of class, and now it's a great option for exam season. Sitting in university lecture chairs or studying in the library is already uncomfortable enough, I may as well wear some flowy items that breath! Here I'm wearing my Roots sweatpants with two breathable tops. I try to accessorize to give the illusion of extra outfit effort, and I finish off this look with comfortable footwear like my Birkenstocks or moccasins! As a rule, I try and avoid wearing sweatpants more than once a week, but for those lazy school/study days, this is my go-to!
-Go for a pop of colour
-Don't wear the "gross old sweats"
-Try and wear comfortable but stylish footwear
-Make an extra effort with your hair or make-up on sweatpants days
-Always accessorize! For the cooler days, opt for an infinity scarf
Do you ever wear sweats when you're out and about?
