Everyone likes sweatpants. They’re comfortable, casual, and perfect for relaxing, hitting the gym, or running errands. But sometimes, men run into issues nailing the effortless look. After all, this relaxed style should appear effortless, but not like less effort. If you’re ready to upgrade your look, read on for your guide on how to style blue sweatpants for men.
Blue and Navy, All Day
It’s no secret that light blue and navy go together like peanut butter and jelly. So when styling your blue sweatpants, consider pairing them with articles colored dark, deep navy—for example, this Heathered Rib Henley from Vintage 1946.
The critical thing to remember is that the shades of blue in your pants and shirt must be slightly different. So if your sweatpants are navy, any blue shirts you wear need to be lighter, and vice versa if your sweatpants are light blue. That way, your colors complement each other without overlapping or making you look too monochromatic.
Blue Sweats and Beige Jacket or Long-Sleeve
Blue sweatpants also style surprisingly well with beige or cream-colored articles, ranging from jackets to T-shirts to sweaters. For example, this sand-colored quarter zip from Vintage 1946 works perfectly with blue sweatpants, especially if your sweatpants’ color is more to the blue-gray side of things instead of navy or royal blue.
Beige and blue go well together if you want to evoke a light, laid-back aesthetic and want to lean away from darker workout apparel or casual clothing. For this reason, you can also wear your blue sweatpants with a beige sweater. This look could be an excellent choice for winter workout apparel or casual social occasions, like a get-together at a friend’s house where the dress code is explicitly laid back.
Blue Sweat Pants and Gray Shirt/Jacket
Of course, blue and gray also go pretty well together. So it’s a no-brainer to pair your favorite blue sweatpants with a gray shirt or jacket. This gray Henley from Vintage 1946 should go perfectly with any blue sweatpants in your wardrobe. Gray is masculine, serious, and ideal for wearing to a light workout or just around your apartment. It’s also a good color if you want to wear your sweatpants in public for a brief excursion, like running to the grocery store or getting gas.
Blue Sweats and Shades
If it’s hot outside, you can style your blue sweatpants with white leather sneakers while also cuffing your sweatpants at the ankles. Finally, add sunglasses for a look that’s more than ready for fun in the sun. Sunglasses can elevate your aesthetic and protect your eyes from the sun’s harsh rays. In some cases, the right pair of shades can make your sweatpants look more stylish than you think in an ironic, trend-setter sort of way.
Blue Sweat Pants and Scarves (Plus Beanies)
Blue sweatpants also pair perfectly with scarves, especially in the winter or fall when the weather gets too chilly for comfort. When selecting a scarf to style your blue sweatpants, make sure the scarf is in a complementary color. We’ve already gone over navy, but other shades like burgundy, green, or fall colors like orange and brown can look phenomenal.
Blue Sweats and Hoodies
Don’t forget to style your blue sweatpants with hoodies! Your favorite hoodie, especially in colors like gray, navy, or burgundy, will make you look colorful and stylish in equal measure. Plus, hoodies are just as comfortable as sweatpants and come with extra pockets for your hands or accessories.
Bottom line: you can pair many different shirts, shoes, and other articles with your favorite blue sweatpants. If you’re looking to start your loungewear collection, Vintage 1946 can help. Check out our selection of shirts and quarter zips today!
