5 Ways to Dress Up Sweats & Comfy Clothes


O C C A S I O N: Shopping!
Up until recently, wearing sweatpants in public has been a fashion faux pas. The trick to wearing sweatpants with heels is that your pants have to be tapered. My Roots pair (from the boys department) has elastic bottoms to keep the pant legs in place. I scrunched it up a little for stylistic purposes and wore them with a fitted tee and statement necklace.

O C C A S I O N: Casual Friday at work
Giant tees are perfect for lounging around in, but if you ever need to dress it up, here's how. I'm wearing a long, loose tee here, but you'd never be able to tell. I tucked the tee in and added a blazer on top to polish up the overall look.

O C C A S I O N: Out with the girls
Like oversized tees, sweaters & sweatshirts are super comfy. Luxe and graphic sweatshirts have been really on trend lately, so we can take advantage of it by adding them to our daily outfits. Here, I wore a leather mini skirt and a statement necklace to dress it up.

O C C A S I O N: School
We tend to pair our leggings with oversized tees or sweaters when we're hanging out at home. Although wearing leggings as pants is considered a fashion faux-pas to many, you can make it work by wearing a thick pair and making sure your bum is covered with a longer top. A boyfriend blazer is the perfect solution for covering the dreaded camel toe.

O C C A S I O N: Hanging out with friends
I rarely wear hoodies nowadays, but here's a quick outfit pairing to show you how I would dress one up. I'm wearing a slim fitting one from H&M (years ago) over a strapless bodycon dress, but one would never be able to tell. You can, of course, replace the dress with a skirt, but I like having an extra layer under my hoodies.


I had another one of those days where I just wanted to play dress up in my closet. Hope you get some inspiration from this! Check out my previous posts from my "Dress with Jess" series!

  1. I love this! I'm all about being as comfortable as I can be while still being semi-stylish. :) I like your "casual friday" and "out with the girls" look.

  5. Hey Jessy! Your lipstick looks pretty! The jacket + leggings looks cute...especially with the scarf. Finding warm tops to pair with leggings is on my shopping list right now. So far I have one that covers the front and back.

    2. REALLY? I didn't know that. I was in H&M today at Markville and decided to browse the kid's section for a while. I was a bit ashamed at first but got over it once I realized how cheap the clothes were (and some look pretty nice too). LOL
