I Swapped Out My Chunky Sweatpants For These Instead

Cool and comfortable, but make it fashion.

Style

As temperatures rise quickly while we are still kind of stuck at home, my outfit choices have gone from warm and chunky to loose and flowy as I deal with this summer's latest heat wave. I still love an oversized approach to my everyday outfits as 'comfortable, but make it fashion' is my life's goal, but with warmer weather comes slight adjustments to staying cool and cozy.

Satin is the perfect alternative to create a chic lightweight leisure look for practically every occasion this season. As we put away our warm weather essentials, here's a guide to keeping cool and comfortable in my new favorite pant style.

Have Fun

Find a neutral colored statement top to pair with your satin pants for a feminine and modern yet earthy mix up. This 'fit is perfect to lounge around in alone or with friends, and you'll feel light as a feather while gracefully enjoying both the great in and outdoors. Perfect for a cute summer day, wear a simple sandal to complete this comfy chic outfit.

I love the tied sweatshirt look so I decided to give it another try with my satin pants for an elevated sporty feel. Is there anything better than a tank top during the warmest of weather? Pair with a knit crop top while adding a casual sneaker or Birkenstock sandal for an even cozier summer look.

This summer I'm living my best leisure life and coming with the looks to match, ready to hop on a yacht or set sail towards the sea for a much-needed baecation. I am loving these satin pants with an open button down paired with a printed cami or bikini top for the perfect cover up. Accessorizing with a gold chain belt for a pop of vintage, this look is the definition of unbothered.

How To Focus Less On Who You Attract In Dating & More On Who You Entertain

The law of attraction is tricky. A few years ago, I felt something was deeply wrong with me because I kept attracting people who hurt me. No matter how hard I tried to fix myself, and alter my energy, the same type of people kept coming my way. I'd talk to my friends about it and ask them, "Why do I keep attracting this type of person?
