Casual Style: Sweat Me
Do you ever feel like it’s easier to get dressed up than it is to go casual? Sometimes I have a hard time on the weekends because 70% of my wardrobe is work clothing.
Sweatsuits are about as casual as it gets, and I have exactly two pair–they were Christmas gifts. I refuse to wear them outside of the house. As I am vehemently opposed to sweats of the hot-pink-velour-with-rhinestones-across-the-arse variety, I hadn’t given much thought to expanding my casual-wear options to include anything other than the occasional American Apparel tri-blend pullover.
So, I was surprised and more than a little relieved when designers started showing artfully styled sweats/casual wear on the runway:

That was enough to drive me to do some online window shopping (screen shopping?). Everything can be mixed and matched since the whole point is to look like you just threw it on:
1. Scarf, Urban Outfitters; 2. Boots, Aldo; 3. VPL knit top, La Garconne; 4. Rider tee, Delia’s; 5. Knit pants, Anthropologie; 6. Jeweled cuff, Forever 21; 7. Stretch-knit shorts, American Apparel; 8. Marni necklace, Brown’s London; 9. Pour La Victoire shoes, shopbop
Perfect for those times when even jeans take too much thought. What do you wear to look semi-presentable on your roll-out-of-bed casual days?
