Crew Skinny Fleece Pant in Heather Steel

I am not one to encourage or validate the wearing of sweatpants. In fact, like Karl Lagerfeld, I view them as …”a sign of defeat…”. Nevertheless, I have developed an inexplicable obsession with the fashion realm’s version of sweatpants - those in neutral colors that feature a slim-fitting leg and a tapered, banded ankle to keep them from looking oversized, unkempt, and otherwise déclassé.

Keep the sporty theme of the sweatpants going with a sweatshirt in a similar or identical color; making it more luxe and playful by wearing it off-the-shoulder {think Jennifer Beals in Flashdance} over a neon tank, allowing the bright strap to peek out for a shot of color. Skip the expected sneaks, instead slipping on a pair of patent pumps {brights only, please!}; and slick on a bold lipstick to awaken your face {don’t start; you can and should wear electrifying lippy!}. A pair of oversized hoops contours, bringing out hidden cheekbones; while a Carrie Bradshaw topknot gives you an energetic yet always elegant vibe. Femininity arrives in the form of a rose-shaped cocktail ring, and voila! Sweatpants? Oh yeah, they just got an oh-so urbane facelift.

I feel the same way about wearing sweatpants but a slim fitted/embellished pair can be somewhat cute (at home lol!)

Love the way you styled that pair!
