The Sweatsuit Look for Those Who Swore They'd Never Wear One

The rise of athleisure is undeniable. Among the fashion set—where it was once considered taboo to wear sweatpants in public—the overall response has been to not simply tolerate it, but embrace it with open arms. Leggings, yoga pants, and other overly comfy garments are, for better or worse, now a viable option to wear to brunch, as seen on the likes of today's most renowned models. Gigi Hadid, one such fashion-world fixture who routinely wears iterations of the sporty-casual trend, even made a strong case for wearing a matching sweatsuit.

A visual that might evoke velour tracksuits of decades past (which are also seeing a resurgence), the "sweatsuit" look can be a polarizing one—but, as seen on Gigi, updated versions of the classic pairing feel right at home today. Her two-piece by Cotton Citizen boasts a distressed acid wash effect, making it feel all the more lived-in. A cropped hem is in line with what's currently trending, and cutoff sleeves add additional edge. Even if you've sworn off tracksuits forever, this particular look just might cause you to reconsider.
