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.

But these days, the 50-year-old actor has also added writing to his repertoire. Omar recently published his second book, a dystopian novel, Nubia: The Reckoning.

In a recent conversation with PEOPLE for their “One Last Thing” column, the author made sure to show love to his long-time partner, Keisha Epps, in a question that prompted him to recall the last time he danced. “My wife and I were at an event, and she was looking great, so I had to take her hand and cut a rug,” Omar told the mag.
