A while back, I saw (in some magazine, now sadly forgotten) a model sitting against a wall, wearing track pants and heels and for some reason loved it. Now sweats + heels is making a major appearance on a few fashion-forward ladies who crave chic comfort. On the runway and the street, sweats are back. (Paired with a jacket and heels, of course, but still!)
How to wear: sweats + heels + a basic top + either a fitted jacket, a loose blazer, or a fur vest… anything, really. That’s what’s so great about this look: it’s so ridiculously versatile!
There’s Rag&Bone’s Resort 2010 line, with its slim chic sweats, rough boots, jackets, and… headscarves? But hey, it works. Me ❤
Then Isabel Marant, in both S/S09 and A/W09.
If you ignore the top half (which I don’t like), the sweats are great. (The boots too).
And on the street…
And I believe Refinery29 had an article on sweats’ comeback… ah yes, here.
Now, where do you find the perfectly chic sweats?
So there you have it. If I ever manage to locate that editorial, I’ll stick it on here. But for now, ciao!
