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

I’m obsessed with our TikTok-famous crossover leggings…maybe you’ve heard of them? If you’re looking to add some flare, try our OFFLINE Flare Leggings.

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!
