I love that the sweatpant trend is still “In” this year!
There’s nothing I want more in the fall than to be comfy and warm.
This trend was seen on the Fall/Winter runways of both Isabel Marant and Michael Kors.
And no, it’s not Lululemon yoga pants worn with everything and worn everywhere….isn’t everyone over this brand after their insults about who should be wearing “their brand”?
This trend is sweatpants elevated to a level chic enough to be shown on the runway.
And yes, you can wear it to Starbucks and lunch-with-the-ladies without looking ridiculous.
There are some rules though…..
1: No Logos! You know what I mean. No Juicy or Pink on your assets!
2: No baggy sweats! The sweatpants need to be slim cut and fit well.
3: The sweats should be the only sporty item in the outfit. Don’t wear a hoodie or other sport item.
Other elements should be something you would wear with pants to a “smart-casual” event. Like a cute, casual blazer, sweater, short boots, flat shoes, leather moto jacket, scarf, button up blouse, jean jacket or wool jacket. If you’re under 30 you can get away with the stilettos shoe look but any older and you’ll look like a cougar on the hunt.
4. Stick to basic colors. Navy blue, gray, black. That’s it! You can add color above the waist if you want.

DON’T…for this look at least.

DO….if you if you can pull if off!
DO by J. Crew
Another DO BY Crew
I found J.Crew had many cute pairs to fit the bill including the cashmere pair above. American Eagle also has a selection of stylish sweats that are really inexpensive.
H&M has a cute pair that is the cheapest of all of them! Old Navy and Target are another source for inexpensive pairs also.
Will you embrace this trend?
