Streetchic Casual Friday look with sweatpants

My regular readers know that I am not a big fan of real suits. Real suits look lovely on young women and give them a great professional look. However, you need to know and pay attention to how to wear a suit and not look old. As a mtter of fact, on mature women, real pants or skirt suits often look conservative, and Old Lady.

When I have to wear a suit, I go for an unmatched suit that I put together from items of my closet like the fake suit or the fake short suit I posted about a while ago.

A frequently asked question is

Can you wear sweatpants to work?

When you work in a casual work environment with Casual Friday culture and hold a position without client interaction, you can wear sweatpants with a blazer as an unmatched suit. Add a crisp button-down shirt, blouse or professional looking sweater and heels. Keep accessories professional (e.g. diamond studs with pearl necklace and gold color watch).

Unmatched suit with sweatpants

Today’s OOTD presents another unmatched suit. I paired my sweat pants with a blazer and a turtleneck sweater for a Friday meeting at work. The three stripes on the leg of these sweatpants give them a tuxedo-pants or military formal uniform-pants like vibe. I kept everything in black and white to go for an elegant classic look. The outfit is fashion-forward as black and white is a hot trend right now too.

What do you think about wearing real suits over 40? Would you wear styled up sweatpants to work on Casual Friday? Have you done it? Let me know, I am curious. If you have examples how you dressed up your sportswear link them up below in addition to your OOTD.

Top of the World Style linkup-party No. 41

Welcome to the Top of the World Style fashion linkup party. It is party No. 41 already! Time seems to fly!

Thanks to those of you who linked up in the last two last weeks to my joined Christmas New Year’s Eve edition. You are all so stylish! I loved what you wore on Christmas and New Year’s Eve. 🙂

As usual, the Readers’ Fav OOTD goes to the link you clicked the most, which was Lauren’s post. She is the blogger of From Earth to Style. Her winter outfit is a real stunner. Rania from The Wardrobe Stylist caught my eyes with her holiday outfit in green and red. Oh, I wish I had a pair of booties like hers. She gave her classic look a great twist of sweet and edgy, and became My Fav OOTD.
