2. Sports pants and leggings
As for the pants, you have different choices according to how you choose to match them. For example, if you choose to wear more or less revisited leggings or sweatpants (perhaps made more glamorous and decorated, but with a clear sporty cut), it will be better to avoid wearing them with sneakers, because you will need chic elements to balance the your look. You can always decide to be sporty from the waist down, and chic at the top of your look, but it would create the wrong effect. Better practice the ability to mix everything: you may find that sports pants together with heels are perfect! With elegant trousers, however, you are free to wear sneakers and running.
