All Black with a Statement Coat

A large jacket over matching black sweats is an easy way to look casual yet sleek. Plus, all the pockets mean you don’t even need a bag.

Throw on A Silk Blouse

A slinky top looks surprisingly right with track pants, especially when your shoes and bag are structured ladylike numbers, too.

Aviator Nation

Go Full Skater Chick

This is the uniform of café-sitting screenwriters all over the West Side. Slip on some Vans, snuggle into a hoodie and all of a sudden, your knock-around sweats are part of a Cali-cool outfit.

Get the look: Aviator Nation pants ($115) and hoodie ($180); Vans shoe ($50)


Get A Matching Overcoat

Yep, this is the look you’ll be seeing a ton of in 2017. The long, lightweight coat turns sweats into a fresh version of a suit (albeit, a super-casual one). With heels, it’s workday creative office attire; with shower slides, a weekend post-gym look.

Get the look: Monrow trench coat ($280), sweater ($130) and pants ($180)
