I wore sweatpants when I was in early elementary school, then swore them off for decades deciding that they were the best friends of veal buttocked couch-potatoes. When I headed back to University a few years ago I had a brief love affair with all things Free City, but as much as I love the concept behind them, they became the uniform of the sort of girls I just can’t bring myself to fully take seriously (let’s call them “Frapaccinistas”).
I’m ready for a sweatpant again, though. Well, it’s more like I’m ready for the RIGHT sweat pant. Let these images serve as direction:
paired with a green surplus military jacket?…say no more…
with a little navy blazer and an unexpected boot?…I’m down
so many faves here: mariniere tee, chambray shirt, khaki trench…the sweats are the icing!
okay…so I had the recipes, but I was missing my main ingredient: the RIGHT sweat pant.
as usual, I found them at my home-away-from-home…Forever21.com:
Upgraded Athletic Pants $19.80
(don’t worry, I’m by no means wearing them in the uncomfortably “hoisted” manner pictured above)
I LOVE them…you’ll be seeing look photos as soon as I get back to Providence, I promise.
The only question that remains is, “are you ready to sweat?”
