Hey, Aerie fam! It’s Syma, Aerie Manager of PR, and today I’m sharing some styling tips for elevating your favorite loungewear into out-and-about looks!
This past year, comfy loungewear has been everyone’s go-to uniform. But as social calendars begin to fill up again, I think I speak for everyone when I say I’m not ready to give up my sweats, leggings and cozy sweaters!
Thankfully, Aerie and OFFLINE’s new arrivals were designed with couch-to-coffee-date in mind. If you’re wondering how to wear your leggings and style other cozy pieces in real life, check out my three loungewear outfit ideas below for a little style inspo.
Couch to…Weekend Coffee Run
On your next weekend coffee run, consider trying this Aerie sweater pant and our oversized button down shirt with our OFFLINE sweater. I can’t get enough of a classic oversized shirt this season! There’s so many ways to wear it and I love having this timeless piece in my closet. Pro tip from years of figuring out how to style oversized shirts: I sized up in the shirt to get an even roomier look, perfect for pairing with leggings and bike shorts.
For a pop of texture, I draped the sweater over my shoulders. As for the pants, the waistband is an easy drawstring (just like your favorite joggers) but the sweater fabric gives them a dressed-up feel. I accessorized with a neutral tan sandal and bag since it’s still warm but this will be a great transition look as we head into the cooler months!
Zoom Meetings to…Meetings IRL
Yes, you can still wear sweats! I love our OFFLINE Fleece Wide Leg Sweatpant with the track-inspired stripe detail. The black colorway is a great option that looks more formal, and you can easily take it to the next level by adding a white tee and leather jacket. Nobody will know you are actually in sweatpants! This look dressy enough for your next meeting in real life and perfect for hanging with a friend after work.
Staying In to…A Night Out
These may take you back to your favorite college yoga pants if you’re a millennial like me. However, these are even better because they’re in our amazing OG fabric that I can’t get enough of!
In a classic black, these flares can take you way beyond working out. Dress them up with a few simple pieces for a ’fit you can take from a work day to a night out on the town. I added one of my go-to blazers and to add a layer and texture, our oversized OFFLINE Throw-Back Crew Neck Sweatshirt in a dark charcoal (which may be one of my favorites of all time). Add some edge with sneakers – they’re casual-cool, not to mention very comfortable!
