How to Elevate Your Loungewear

Tip #1: Add on some outerwear. Throw a varsity jacket over your gray sweats to complete the look. 

Tip #2: Always add accessories. A pair of sunglasses automatically makes an outfit look more put together.  

Tip #3: Go monochromatic. If all your clothes are in the same color family, people will think you put time and thought into your outfit, and it looks polished and simple. Wear it when you go out or during your work call. 

Tip #4: Wear layers. Try a sweater over your shirt for a put-together look. Ready to take it up one more notch? Top it all off with an overcoat for a complete multidimensional outfit. 

Tip #5: Put on nice shoes. If you’re leaving the house, nice shoes add a finish to your overall look and aesthetic—and let people know you care about what you wear.
