A funny thing happened over the last few years: sweatpants, once famously derided as the easiest way to telegraph to the world that , have come to occupy a rarified realm in the national psyche, a space typically reserved for widely popular but critically panned guilty pleasures, like certain fast foods or particularly cringe reality TV. Simply put, the sweatpant has arrived—and it's here to stay.
If you're anything like me, chances are you've been wearing some form of sweats every damn day for the last few months straight. Turns out, sweatpants (call 'em joggers, if you like) are predictably perfect for staying inside as we all hunker down and do our damndest to flatten the curve and weather this storm. But sweatpants both slim and slouchy alike have also long since been given the designer treatment (so it goes without saying they're stylish as hell), and the best ones fit just as well as your favorite dress trousers and are made for proudly wearing in public, antiquated notions of appropriate office attire be damned.
Sleek silhouettes, and sophisticated, idiosyncratic cuts abound, but they're still as comfortable as ever, which means wearing the right pair of sweatpants—in high-tech fabrics or good ol' fleece—is still the easiest and most effective way to dress down any outfit. Throw on the coziest pair you own and some camp socks when lounging around the apartment or treat yourself to a luxe take on the style in a super premium material with a sweater (a cardigan, perhaps?) layered on top and a pair of slip-on sneakers for a WFH快乐飞艇开奖app fit that still feels office-ready.
From tried-and-true classics to updated takes on the style from some of the coolest labels around, there's never been more options—or a better time to be in the market for a pair of today's breed of subtly-tweaked, expertly-cut sweats.
