I Swapped Out My Chunky Sweatpants For These Instead


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.

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.

Skylar Marshai is known for her extravagant style, and her hair is no exception. But now, she’s giving her hair a break and focusing on hair care with SheaMoisture’s Bond Repair Collection. “I feel like my hair has always been an extension of my storytelling because I know it's so innately linked to my self-expression that I've been thinking a lot about how my love for crafting my hair into these different forms and shapes has honestly never given it a chance to just be,” Skylar explains.

When I was a child, one of my favorite pastimes was theater. There was something so fulfilling about being on stage and connecting with the talented individuals breathing life into characters and stories. So naturally, I entered college as a theater major, hopeful of creating more of these moments; I ended up switching later on. However, the love for the craft never left, and my respect for actors only grew. And every now and then, I watch a movie or television show, come across a new actor, and think to myself, ‘Ooh, you can tell they’re for real about this.’ This background brings me to the present and our conversation with NAACP award-winning actress Gail Bean.
