Leather Sweatpants

I used to be very, very anti-sweatpants.  I wouldn't be caught dead in sweats, and I rarely even wore sweats around the house.  Any soft, baggy pants that I acquired would be hand-me-downed (or rather, up) to my sister.  However, over the summer, interning at PINK and working with loungewear made me really appreciate sweats.   I can't believe I'm admitting this, but I wear sweats all the time.  Sometimes, I wear the same sweats two days in a row.  I even wear them to (gasp) CLASS.  Yes, at fashion school.  My belief used to be that wearing sweatpants was a sign of defeat.  Who taught me that?  King Karl Lagerfeld.

He once said, “Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants.”  I used to believe that.  That quote even used to be my cover photo on Facebook, because I was THAT passionate about not wearing sweatpants.  Now, I believe the opposite to be true.  Now, I see sweatpants as a sign of strength.  Wearing sweatpants means that you are unafraid to wear a piece that may not be the sexiest or form-flattering, but you are confident enough to wear them and still find a way to look great.  Plus, if you can style sweatpants to not look sloppy or lazy, you are pretty much a fashion all star.  Sorry Karl!
