I used to live by the no-sweatpants-unless-you’re-at-the-gym rule. I didn’t care how “comfortable” they were. There was no way you’d catch me at the airport schlepping across security in baggy-ass sweats.
But I’ll admit that I’ve been intrigued by the recent “dressy” sweatpants trend. Somehow, with a good pair of ankle booties, these anti-fashion pants kind of look chic.
I must be turning a corner because these Weekend Sweatpants over at Need Supply Co. totally caught my eye. I love the drop-crotch, baggy fit and softly tapered legs. I like the dark grey hue and contrasting drawstring waist. The front and back pockets give these sweats a trouser-like look.
The key to pulling off “dressy” sweats is all in the styling. Do not, and I repeat, do not wear anything in sweatshirt material up top, or you’ll just look like you walked out of spin class.
To elevate the sweats, choose fabrics with different textures, like a wool sweater, or even a silk shirt half-tucked in. Pick a leather moto jacket with a slightly shrunken fit, and pull out your favourite pair of bootie heels.
The Weekend Sweatpants are $69 over at Need Supply Co.
