Sweatpant Shamer’s Guide to Getting Dressed

This one is for those crazy people like Karl Lagerfield.


I get it, not everyone thinks it’s acceptable to wear sweatpants in public. Even those that do may have dress codes at work that don’t allow it. Here are some tips on how to avoid getting too lazy with your outfits.

  1. Only buy nice clothes. I once had a classmate who never once wore sweatpants. For two years, I had class with her and not a single day did she wear something lazy. I asked what I’m sure many of you college kids are also wondering… “How do you do that?!” Her answer surprised me: “I just don’t buy clothes like that.”
  2. Plan out what you’re going to wear the night before. To avoid the morning grog, pick out your outfit the day before when you’re feeling more motivated.
  3. Maintain a neutral wardrobe. Having lots of mix and match clothing makes picking out outfits easy. Close your eyes, grab a shirt and pair of pants and you’re good!
  4. Stock up on accessories. Accessories give you the opportunity to shake things up. No one will notice you’re wearing the same dress you wore last week if you wear different jewelry.
  5. Make your own uniform. New York Art Director, Matilda Kahl, got tired of stressing over what to wear to work. So, she wore the same thing everyday and life was good. Read more about it here.
  6. Find yourself some solid staple items. When decisions aren’t coming easily in the morning, it’s good to have an outfit to fall back on. It should be something simple to avoid repetition.
