How to Style Sweatpants for those lazy fashionless days

The Juno snowstorm, having lasted about two weeks now, made me realize that I am capable of living in sweatpants and Patagonia fleece for six days, or more. It's easy, cozy and hideous. I go outside only to shovel the massive amounts of snow but it's impossible to do other activities, in public, dressed like that (there are limits, even at 23°F)!

 Here are my suggestions to wear your sweatpants... out in public:

1. Wear your sweatpants with a semi-dressy shirt
       YES - leather jacket, button up shirt or tight t-shirt
        NO - loose sweater, fancy shirt (too much contrast), old dirty t-shirt

2. Add jewelry
       YES - handmade or discrete, or add a watch
        NO - pearls and diamonds

3. Chose the right pair of shoes
       YES - leather slip-ons or Converse
        NO - big snow shoes, rain boots etc. and no grey wool socks

4. Look fresh as a daisy
       YES - be awake or wear fresh dewy make up
        NO - have bags under your eyes because you just got out of bead... what?

You're red carpet ready (ok, slight exaggeration).


La tempête de neige, Juno, qui dure maintenant depuis deux semaines, m'a appris que je peux vivre en pantalon survet' et polaire Patagonia pendant six jours et plus. C'est facile, douillet et moche. Je sors pour dégager les tonnes de neige mais impossible de faire autre chose, en public, habillée comme ça (il y a des limites, même à -10°C)! 

Voici mes conseils pour porter un pantalon survêtement... en public:

1. Assortissez votre pantalon à un haut mi-habillé, mi-décontracté 
       OUI- perfecto, chemise à boutons ou t-shirt près du corps
       NON - pull ample, haut de soirée (trop de contraste), vieux t-shirt délavé et sale 

2. Ajoutez des bijoux
       OUI- faits mains ou discrets, ou une montre
       NON - perles rares et diamants

3. Bien choisir ses chaussures
       OUI- baskettes en cuir ou Converse
       NON - grosses bottes de neige, bottes de pluie ou chaussettes grises en laine 

4. Avoir une bonne mine
       OUI- être réveillée ou appliquer un maquillage teint frais et discret
       NON - yeux fatigués car on vient de sortir du lit déjà habillée en survêtement... bah quoi?

Vous êtes prête pour le tapis-rouge (oui enfin, légère exagération).
