Sweatpants and track pants are no longer reserved for workouts and household chores! The fashion gods have somehow managed to turn our comfy cozy guilty pleasure into a modernly chic piece that can be worn outside the old confines of the home and gym.
The only problem? It's a new idea that's a bit foreign to us. After years of being told that sweatpants are the lazy go-to, not daytime attire, it's hard for us to adjust to such a concept. Which makes us wonder, "Just how can we chic up sweatpants?"
In truth, it's all about the tone you set for your outfit. The pants are the pants– the subtle piece that compliments your overall look. The focal points are what you where on top and how you dress your feet.
For a clean, sharp look that can be worn to the office or on a night out, go for a crisp blouse or a basic shirt and a blazer with pointed toe heels. Headed for a weekend getaway or a vacation? Opt for a blouse and a cardigan to feel sleek and avoid feeling sloppy. If you're headed out to the grocery or to drop the kids off at daycare, throw on flats or booties with a sweater or button-up for a classy daytime look.
Below are a few BURU ways to chic up sweatpants:

A changing post-pregnancy body and limited time for moms make sweatpants a wardrobe staple. Whether it's playtime at home, a PTA meeting or a lunch date with the girls or your hubby, sweatpants can work for any occasion.
