SUNDAY SWEATPANTS CHIC: SHOULD THIS TREND STAY UNDER THE COVERS?

Photobucket

The weekend passes by so fast that sometimes you don't even have a moment to catch your breath. I don't know about you, but the best part of the weekend is just having a few extra hours in your comfiest clothes......also known as the clothes I would never be caught wearing outside my front door. For those of you that have jam packed weekends and never get a chance to indulge in sweatpants time, there's hope.

Awhile back the sweatpants dress up trend was hitting streetstyle blogs like crazy. I still wasn't sure about it, I just felt that sweatpants were meant to stay under the covers, in fact I don't even own a pair. Then sweatpants started to adopt current pant trends and the gray color of course partners with black perfectly. In some cases it even works with brown, as pictured above.

So after some thought, a few busy weekends where I wished I could just wear my yoga pants outside the house... I remembered this. I haven't found a pair that I felt I could pair with a leather jacket or a fur coat, but I am on the lookout.

Do you think you could get away with wearing this to work or would you even want to?

I've been wanting to try this, but I haven't found any suitable to wear outside yet. I think you need to be really carefully what you pair them with

Thanks Kaye and I completely agree.

This look is growing on me but only for leisure time. Unless you work somewhere like Conde Nast, it's totally inappropriate for the office.

I like the concept of regular-cut pants made with sweatpant material.

I wish I could, but there is no way I could ever pull a look like this off without looking like I am headed to bed. :)

I agree with Kaye. I think you'd really have to glam them up to not look like a slob. Perhaps pair with a sequin top or fun faux fur?

love love love the look with the fur jacket, but I could never pull it off though. Ahh, I just wish I could.

Also love the pants in the last shot. Do you know what brand? REading your blog makes me realize just how much I need to update my wardrobe! :) Good thing my horoscope literally told me to go shopping today. Go Scorpios!

...I don't want to try this. I've been trying to make casual less casual and this would lead me in the opposite direction.
