This Anti-Legging Trend Is Officially Lit

There's no doubt about it: Sweatpants were one of the defining mainstays of 2021. Yep, sweatpant outfits are practically eclipsing other wardrobe basics among the fashion set. They are equal parts comfortable and cool, so it's easy to see why they're sticking around in our day-to-day lives. Much like the suiting trends that have emerged recently—where bigger proportions and looser silhouettes 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 sweatpant 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 sweatpant outfits right now, and shop the looks. I’ll personally be adopting these ideas for upcoming looks.
