The soft, cotton fabric of sweatpants looks great contrasted against tougher textiles such as corduroy or leather which add a little luxury to even the most laid-back look. Cord jackets are a big trend this winter, offering the right balance between smart and casual, and a great leather jacket will always be in style. Finish with a white T-shirt and sneakers for an easy, polished look – simplicity at its best.
The concept of high/low dressing – mixing loungewear with more tailored pieces – has really come into its own of late. With the growth of home working and lack of formal events, casualwear has staked a strong claim on our choice of outfits. Try the trend by teaming your sweatpants with a sharp coat, plus sneakers that fall on the smarter end of the spectrum.
Sweatpants and a good bomber jacket are a match made in heaven; pick a cuffed sweatpant that nips in at the ankle to balance out the jacket’s boxy proportions. If you’re wearing all dark shades, add a flash of colour and lift the look with a bright T-shirt or jumper.
