This week, we answer a customer question about what shoes go best with a pair of our Dressy Sweatpants.
Finding the perfect shoes to match your outfit is something that has perplexed women for centuries.
Here are 5 options for different occasions and seasons that will mix and match with your Dressy Sweatpants, and ideally other outfits in your suitcase across several seasons.
A classic ballet flat pairs beautifully with a pair of Dressy Sweatpants.
There are a myriad of ballet flats in the market from dressy to casual, and everything in between. In our outfit, we've paired a basic brown leather flat with lacing detail.
I recommend sticking with a basic ballet flat or a cut-out (D'Orsay style) flat versus doing a strapped ballet flat which will not work as well with a pair of longer Dressy Sweatpants as they will cover the extra detail.
I love a good pair of shoe-ties (short + booties). I used to fear this shoe as my bottom half is curvier than my top.
However, I've found that a good bootie can add interest. The extra height elongates the leg like a heel. A short bootie works well with a pant like our Dressy Sweatpant where you don't want to cover up the ankle details.
A heel is a work outfit essential.
For work, choose a neutral shoe, or spice is up with a pattern.
For play, add a little sparkle or detail on the toe, or fun cut outs.
A heel will really take your Dressy Sweatpants to the next level. No one will know they are sweatpants (just you).
For a warmer spring, and hot summer days, a flat sandal works well with our Dressy Sweatpants.
I love wearing my TKEES flip flops with my Dressy Sweatpants on a weekend when lounging about or heading to and from yoga.
Alternatively, you could add a dressier mule, or a more substantial sandal like a Birkenstock. The possibilities are endless!
It seems almost too obvious to pair casual runners with Dressy Sweatpants, right?
Well, it works!
In our outfit, we've styled our Dressy Sweatpants with converse runners in white.
There are now so many shades of 'casual runners' that can truly change your look (while not sacrificing comfort!)
Sometimes the best look is to go with the flow of the spirit of the pants which are what the industry is calling 'athleisure'.
A casual runner is also a good airport shoe.

Our case for navy is simple - it’s an unexpected alternative, it’s visually interesting, and it pairs well with a lot. Don’t believe us? Take a look.
