Especially first thing in the morning when it’s time to take the dogs out for their stroll, and when I drag my ass to yoga and it’s too freezing to wear leggings. But I’m thinking of expanding my horizons: I have a super-stylish friend who wears her sweatpants as streetwear, and she always looks great, and enviably comfortable. I wouldn’t try to dress sweats too far up (although I have included here a silk pair that is practically evening-worthy), but instead to think of them as an alternative to jeans on days you just can’t be bothered with a zipper.
this heather grey pair looks a bit like what the woman in the picture is wearing.
Just a well-cut, straightforward black pair.
Grey camo is nice and subdued.
These are fleece, which would be so damn cozy.
I wrote about these PE Nation sweats a while back. They were quite splurgetastic, but I went for it and am so glad I did: they’re the perfect winter sweats, very thick and warm. Now they’re on sale—still not cheap, but nicely cheaper.
I like the raw cropped hem here.
And I am crazy for this dark leopard print, and the fun way it contrasts with the stripes at the waist.
A silk pair is nicely luxe—wear them exactly as you would a good pair of trousers, with just about anything.
The skulls here stop short of being overwhelming because the print is black-on-black so they’re barely visible.
These are Everlane’s cashmere iteration—there’s a waitlist, but it’s well worth getting yourself on: I own a pair and they’re so soft, and wear well.
How squishy and comfortable would a velour pair be?
Here is a post I did on my favorite pair of yoga pants.
