One Item Four Ways: Knitted Sweatpants

Source: Pinterest/

Let’s be honest, we’ve all been living in our loungewear these days. If you’re not already wearing them, you’re probably thinking about when you can next slip into them – right?

There’s no doubt sweatpants and hoodies have been the real heroes of the pandemic, but, as we look to the future, it’s time to think about real world ways of dressing in them – because we’re not quite ready for jeans yet.

What Knitted Sweatpants Should I Buy?

If you’re looking to get the most out of your sweatpants, invest in a black pair. These are best for dressing up and down (and best for hiding last minute spillages)…

Who said ‘matchy matchy’ was a bad thing? Not us. If you’re going to invest in some knitted sweatpants, it’s best to complete the look with the matching top. Not only does it look chic, but it makes morning dressing that bit more simple.

Business at the top, relaxation at the bottom is the mantra we’ve been following during our WFH days. Who’d have ever thought we’d be sealing business deals with an elasticated waistband?

Whilst on video calls, the top half of your look is more important than ever, and a staple body like this is the perfect partner to knitted sweatpants. Plus, you won’t be caught short when the postman arrives with your tenth BrandAlley delivery of the week…

If you told us a year ago we’d even consider wearing sweatpants on a night out, we’d struggle to believe you. Rework the ‘jeans and a nice top’ idea and instead wear your knitted pants. Complete with a pair of killer heels, and you’ll be feeling ultra-comfortable whilst looking great on the dancefloor.
