Let’s start at level 1. The easiest way to make sweatpants look stylish is by adding a structured topcoat over your outfit.

Because the look above is shockingly easy to pull together. Just reach for sweatpants, a white t-shirt, hoodie, and dad sneaks. What elevates the outfit? That cool belted trench over top.

Another great option for outerwear? A blazer. This look is especially appropriate in fall and early spring.

Yes, you can wear your favorite pair of grey sweatpants with a white t-shirt and sneakers and call it a day, but why stop there? Add a hoodie or crewneck sweatshirt layered over a rumpled Oxford shirt, and you’ll have a stylish, dressy yet casual outfit you’ll feel cool wearing.

I love how the Antetokounmpo brothers pulls their socks over the elastic hem of their sweatpants.

And when you’re wearing a full sweatsuit, it’s little touches like these that elevate the look from whatever to “Ooh, what an outfit!”

You can absolutely wear a full men’s sweatsuit of grey sweatpants with a grey sweatshirt; just pay attention to the details so the effect is intentional, not lazy.

In the winter, a puffer and a beanie complete the look. In warmer months, topping this athleisure outfit with your favorite baseball cap is all the accessories you need and looks just right.
