Sweatpants have been trying to have a moment in fashion since the days of the Juicy Couture tracksuit. Sure those sweats were worn by every female living in America for five straight years, but they were never really considered in style. Only now are sweatpants getting the attention they deserve.
Thanks mostly to Pheobe Philo, comfort is considered chic—just take a walk down the street to see how many girls traded their heels in for sneakers. Women want to be comfortable while still looking cool, and designers (Alexander Wang, Phillip Lim, Marni) caught on and responded—enter the heavy emphasis this season on sweatpants, harems, and joggers.
Instead of throwing on a t-shirt or hoodie, pair your sweats with something a bit less casual, like a loose silk blouse or bright oversized sweater. Finish the look with a clean pair of sneakers or a chunky leather bootie and trust me, you will get stopped for looking so cool and comfortable. Just you wait and see.
