How to Take Drawstring Pants from Day to Night

Sporty style is a trend we’ve been eyeing for at least a couple of spring/summer seasons. Tentative at first, it’s blown up the runways of even unexpected high-fashion brands like Gucci, Tom Ford and the notoriously bohemian Emilio Pucci. We’re betting that, like us, you’ve found a way to incorporate a mesh, neon or neoprene piece into your wardrobe already. We wouldn’t be surprised to hear you’ve boned up your sneaker collection, too. 

And why not? Sports-inspired looks are cool, comfortable, and thanks to Karl Lagerfeld, an ode to elevating casual style. So, we’ve put together a collage of one of our favorite sports-loving pieces to show how every girl can wear it from day to night. The drawstring waist that’s usually reserved for sweats is going cocktail hour, workday and beyond. It’s all about picking the right pieces to pair with the right style of pant.
