This Anti-Legging Trend Is Officially Lit

While I still rely on leggings for a workout class or a coffee run, it occurred to me recently that fashion girls aren’t wearing the athleisure staple as much as they used to and wearing sweatpants instead. Yep, sweatpant outfits are practically eclipsing leggings among the fashion set. Much like the suiting trends that have emerged this year—where bigger proportions have been winning out over body-skimming shapes—athleisure has been growing more relaxed and pajama-like with jogger silhouettes replacing formfitting leggings.

So what are the best ways to wear sweatpants outfits? Taking some notes from fashion insiders, there are plenty of chic ways to style them whether worn with structured blazers and sneakers or chunky knits and combat boots. Go on to get inspiration for cool ways to wear sweatpants outfits right now, and shop the looks. I’ll personally be adopting these ideas for upcoming travel looks.
