Whether you call it athleisure or simply a miracle from the fashion powers that be, sweatpants are suddenly, well, chic. But we’re not talking your tattered gray pair from college. Nope, this trend is all about elevated, modern styles that combine slim tailoring with—hallelujah—elastic waistbands.
Track suit meets power suit. A strong shoulder and nipped waist prevent you from verging into the schlub zone.
KEEP IT SLIM
Say no to slouchy, saggy silhouettes. Yes to slim, trim cuts. We’re still talking about stretch pants here, so you won’t sacrifice that much in comfort.
TRY POPS OF COLOR
A red stripe is eye-catching (not to mention leg-elongating) against an otherwise all-black outfit.
CHOOSE A LUXE FABRIC
Satins and silks look totally elegant (and feel totally like pajamas).
TOSS ON A MOTO JACKET
Nothing adds instant style like a leather motorcycle jacket. Go bold and graphic with a black, white and red color palette.
PAIR WITH A PUMP
Sweatpants can look sexy, and here’s proof. A ruby-red pump and satin bomber bring heavy attitude.
