We want a little style upgrade, but our favorite sweatpants are so cozy we don’t want to give them up. The solution? Jazz them up a bit. I’m styling these cool baggy sweatpants seven ways for now (and later for spring), plus giving ’em a mini-review!
How I Found These Cool Baggy Sweatpants By The Great
OK, friends. I’m here to tell you about how this job is kinda crazy sometimes, and how it does things like make me OK with buying $145 sweatpants. I KNOW. But here’s the story about these jersey crop sweatpants by The Great:
I kept seeing these baggy sweatpants. For months. They haunted me online…with their cool factor. I finally gave in, tried them out, because that’s what we do, intent on sending them right back because ugh…aaaand…then I kept trying them on. Because I loved them. And now I’ve worn the sweatpants multiple times a week for months and here we are. The end. (Also, they keep selling out! So I guess I’m not the only one they won over!)
Don’t worry, while there aren’t a ton of similar-enough options, I have found a few other pairs you can check out below…
Where to find them: Revolve (selling fast, in black gray & olive) | Shopbop (gray only, same as mine) | The Great Website (the almost black shade is in stock)
NOTE: Mine were called Pajama Sweatpants and are mostly sold out, but the Jersey Crop are the same brand & cut as mine, but possibly a bit different fabric.
7 Cool Ways To Style These Baggy, Raw Hem Sweatpants
1. With A Moto Jacket & Sneaker Boots
Literally wearing this today. Love, love. Granted, these sweats aren’t super-heavy for your cold days, but as I usually talk about, our winters are mild here so they’re perfect. And cool!
2. With An Oversized Puffer Coat & Sherpa Boots
Ooh, I love this. I wish I could tell you this coat wasn’t sold out, but this year’s adidas puffer is still super-cute. Essentially, a great black puffer coat and your fav tall sherpa cozy boots will achieve a similar look! I love this style of sweatpants with the cropped raw hem so much because it works with pretty much any shoe.
3. With A Cozy Cardigan-As-A-Shirt
You may recognize this pretty cardi from my latest post styling up the Tomcat jeans. It’s so soft and pretty, and I love it worn as a top, with pretty layered necklaces. It’s a little longer than my natural waist, so I just half tuck it…easy in these sweats!
4. With A Soft Sweater & Cozy Slippers For Home
One of my favorite lounge outfits, which, let’s be honest, is the most-worn type of look these days. These slippers and this sweater are true favs! So soft, both of them. Size down in the sweater.
5. With A Long Cardigan, Graphic Tee & Fun Sneaks
This is another most-worn combo. I love love a long cardigan for giving a coat-vibe instead of a preppy or dated regular cardigan look. Add a graphic tee (my most-worn are white with black designs) and favorite sneakers. These new sneakers were part of my recent round-up and I adore them.
6. With A Denim Shirt & Sandals, For Spring
Oddly enough, I already found my favorite sandals for later this year. The benefit of being home so much is I can just rock these around the house now and pretend it’s closer to warm weather than it actually is. Loving a denim shirt moment these days, too. It kinda works half-tucked…but looked better tucked in. I’d knot in front in actual warm weather!
7. With Checkered Vans & A Military Jacket
This will be a favorite spring-lewk. I can already tell. This Anine Bing military jacket is another crazy thing that sucked me in, but I love it. I’ve found a couple of similar options like this one by Velvet at Bloomingdale’s (on sale and super similar) or this one from Free People at Nordstrom. I find when I want to add structure to casual pieces like sweats, I so often grab for this jacket.
I tried and tried to find y’all some similar options, but while there are a lot of sweats out there right now, not many have this same dropped-crotch relaxed crop style that works so well with all the shoes. There are many jogger-style pants, but I like the bit wider leg and the raw hem (which you could easily shorten, too, if needed) and those are few and far between. They’ve still got that relaxed look without bunching at the ankles like the jogger pairs always do on my shorter self.
Shop The Great Crop Sweatpants
These keep selling out, like I said, but tend to come back in stock in one form or another, at least in the same cut/shape as mine. This site doesn’t work with our widget below, but you can find more sizes and styles on The Great website.
Shop A Similar Cropped Sweatpants
The Free People Hop To It pant seems most like the pair I have, out of all the alternative styles I found. I’ll keep an eye out for more to share!
Like I said, what I love most about these is that cool-girl factor and the cropped hem that works with everything from tall sneaker boots to sandals. If you’ve found a similar pair you’ve tried and love I’d love to hear about them!
