7 Celebrity Outfits That Are Making Me Rethink My Sweatpants

Every so often, celebrities will step out wearing something that makes it seem they're just like us. Though, I'd like to think they're a little better at some things, including styling 4-year-old sweatpants in a way that actually looks good. No matter how effortless celebs make walking out of the house in baggy sweats look, it's not an easy feat. But that doesn't mean we can't get on their level.

I've been taking notes lately and found a trove of celebrity sweatpant looks I plan on copying in the coming days. After all, comfort is key when creating work-from-home ensembles. From Kendall Jenner to Zendaya to Jennifer Lopez (the queen of athleisure), you'll find seven celebrity-approved outfits below just waiting to be re-created with pieces you likely already own. 

And if you don't already own a pair of sweats you love (or you're simply in the mood for a little shopping), I've got you covered. Keep scrolling to see my favorite picks.

Although I tend to favor cropped styles, EmRata makes me want to give an oversize sweatshirt a chance. Too bad I don't have a cute pup to accessorize with.
