With the rise of athleisure, only wearing sweatpants at home—or for quick errands when we don't want to run into anyone we know—are things of the distant past. This trend has rapidly gone from faux pas to full-on fashion statement, and we are 100% on board.
Now we're no longer fooled by their slouchy style because with designers putting their own twists on the laid-back sweatpant, they look more and more appealing with each passing season.
