Drawstring pants have not exactly been considered sartorial favorites. While comfortable, they have typically been relegated to work out purposes.
But not in this day and age! With the influx of well-made and stylish drawstring pants, they’re just as easy to incorporate in your everyday wardrobe as your regular jeans.
Even some of the trendsetters in Tinseltown turn to them for comfort and style. See how they glorified the drawstring pants and made them look suitable outside the gym:
1. Heidi Klum styled them with a structured blazer

Blazers instantly add a polished flair to everything – even a pair of jogging pants! Just make sure you do it right by opting for slim-fitting drawstring pants instead of the baggy ones.
2. Jennifer Lopez glammed them up with a shimmery top
Jennifer paired Tom Ford padlock pointed-toe pumps with a two-piece outfit from the JLO by Jennifer Lopez Kohl’s collection. The outfit was completed with Ray-Ban Flash Lens Matte Aviator Sunglasses, a bracelet by Hermès Collier de Chien, and a bracelet + earrings by Brumani.

Shimmer and glitter are often associated with evening garb. So a tank top with a shimmery finish should do well in amping up the look of a solid-colored pair of drawstring pants. Finish off the look with a pair of pointy pumps.
3. Tori Spelling kept it youthful with a printed cropped top

Nothing says edgy quite like pairing your drawstring pants with a cropped shirt. It’s a great outfit to wear for long days so you can stay comfortable while keeping your style. Opt for a chic footwear for a spot-on outfit.
4. Cara Delevingne toughened up her pair with a leather jacket
