It looks like sweatpants are trending- for men and women. I have been seeing them all over the streets of Paris. I don’t mean big baggy sweatpants, but fitted, trendy looking ones. I think that the last time sweat pants were tending was during the Juicy Couture craze in 1999… But it looks like they might be making a comeback with a facelift. I have spotted them on the streets, in stores on mannequins, in shop windows, and online. Personally, I prefer to leave the house dressed in real clothes, but it seems like these are gradually becoming more of the norm. I have even seen leather versions. And people are styling them pretty well too. With heels, cool sneakers, and even boots. So now I’m not sure how I feel about sweatpants becoming a staple of my wardrobe, but I have to say that I’m not completely opposed. For the first time maybe fashion is embracing comfort by producing these chic looking pants. But trendy comfort comes at a hefty price, with some selling as high as 345 euro making you wonder, are these worth it?
