Styling Sweatpants from Lounge to Chic City Wear

Sitting here at Hotel Villa Flori enjoying the view over lake Como last Saturday afternoon. Sweatpants and top are from the online store SPORT.LES and are also the outfit I wore on the plane to Singapore last week.

Of course we didn’t spend all afternoon at the hotel – so pretty soon it was time to change for town. With a few simple additions this casual sweatpants look went from super casual to chic…

Step 1: add a pair of heeled booties to smarten up the look.

The next step is easy – simply add a blazer. This one has an element of stretch to it – from Zara a few years ago.

Before moving on check out the detail of the top…super pretty.

Of course a simple blazer is not going to be warm enough on a really cold Winter day. Perfect excuse to dress the outfit up even more with a long coat.

There you have it styling sweatpants as chic city wear.

Hi! I’m Yvonne, a 40 something (wink) Kiwi, living in Zurich. I love fashion, travel, shopping and food – believing chocolate will cure almost anything!

  1. Hi Yvonne! I always love your style, but my sweat pants are for home or the gym. I’d rather wear grey trousers or jeans instead of the sweats, but the rest, including those boots are so stylish. Thanks for always sharing your style fashion. I love it. Enjoy Italy! Un bacione!

    1. Thank you dear – I had the same feedback from another friend of mine in NZ so I guess it depends what you like. For me though if I am travelling long distance in a plane then it’s only with sweat pants 😉

      xx Yvonne
