How to style Sweatpants: Outfit Ideas for Men

Lesley Krijan

If you’ve seen our blog post about how to find the perfect sustainable sweatpants, you should already know what to look for when buying them. The next step is the right styling: in 2021 there are more options for combining them than ever before.

While sweatpants are known and loved as a street-style classic, they are also super easy to upgrade. At SANVT, we’ve given the trendy pants a modern update and designed an essential that convinces in both quality and comfort through the finest materials and craftsmanship. Together with Adrián Caloca, we want to show you how versatile The Perfect Sweatpants are.

The Smart Look

With some simple tricks, it’s easy to integrate the comfortable pants into a casual business outfit. Paired with our Oxford Shirt, The Perfect Sweatpants look far more elegant. For this more formal look, it’s important to make sure that the shirt has a slim fit and doesn’t look too casual, so that the sporty character of the sweatpants fades into the background.

If you follow this tip, you will have found the perfect outfit for home-office days or the next after-work meeting with colleagues. For this occasion, the Oxford Shirt can also be worn open over a plain white T-Shirt, which is tucked into the sweatpants. Simple sneakers complete the look.

The Comfy Look

The combination of a grey hoodie and grey sweatpants combines two trends for 2021. The monochrome trend (i.e. a complete look in only one color) was last seen on the catwalks of Men’s Fashion Week and the tracksuit is probably the most popular street style outfit of last year.

It is also a real all-rounder. There is no better outfit for staying at home. And if you have to run errands, you will look cool while you’re getting things done. In autumn and winter, a trench coat or a light wool coat can be combined with the modern tracksuit. If you don’t like to look quite so monotone, a colored cap or sneakers can provide an eye-catching counterpoint.

The Sporty Look

With all these outfit ideas, of course, we must not forget the original function of sweatpants. Yes, they were actually invented for doing sports. And while we can understand that it is tempting to lie on the sofa in these cozy pants rather than go jogging, we have found the perfect look for those who still like to keep things sporty.

Combined with The Perfect T-Shirt, The Perfect Sweatpants are suitable for almost any kind of sports. The basic T-shirt can be worn tucked-in to emphasise the minimalist style and to give some shape to the outfit. The Zip Hoodie is the perfect companion for cooler days and, worn open, it still provides enough warmth through the innovative loopback material (loops on the inside) with the T-shirt still visible.

The Perfect Sweatpants are a classic fashion piece that will never go out of style. The modern cut in combination with minimalist design makes them a timeless basic, that you will rely on for a long time. Not only do they impress with their striking softness, but they are also breathable and warming at the same time. This means you can wear the sweatpants all year round and never have to sacrifice comfort even on warmer days.
