A Chistian Sirrano clutch and strappy heels.

Thanks to my brother, I’ve become attached to my sweatpants. Even when I stayed at his house a while ago, I secretly wanted to ‘borrow’ all of them. Alas, I was able to purchase a few of my own, and now I can’t stop wearing them.

When one hears the word ‘sweatpants,’ it’s often associated with gym attire or in-home lounge wear. For the most part, this is the case due to how comfortable it is. However, I recently discovered that sweatpants are and can be a fantastic alternative for business casual wear and had to try it out on my own.

I’m a stickler for the simple things in life and so is this concept. When broken down, there are just three basic things you need: sweatpants, a nice dress shirt, and your best shoes. Then, you can worry about what accessories you want to use, but really, it’s that simple!

In my outfit, I chose a pair of dark green sweats to wear with a vintage, loose-fitting button-up shirt I ‘borrowed’ from my mom. Albeit the looseness, there’s something quite professional about it as it gives off a relaxed vibe. With strappy heels and a Christian Sirrano clutch, my version of the look is complete.
