Kick off Monday comfortable. Athleisure was in, and it still is. But what’s more comfortable that leggings and a pair of sneakers on a cold day? Sweats. And we’re not talking cute coordi two-piece sets that hug your body and make your butt look good. We’re talking about good old-fashioned, cuff ‘em up sit-on-a-couch sweats. The great news – they’re actually in. Not that we needed an excuse to wear the clothing equivalent of a comforter. Hoodie outfits and sweatpants converted into street style are an actual 2019 fashion trend. Thank you fashion kings and queens.
This trend is not only the most comfy that will ever exist (unless snuggies become a sudden fashion statement), it’s also something everyone can afford to indulge in. Ready to get your laze on? Here’s the scoop.
How to wear sweatshirt and sweatpants outfits outside
You don’t need to be the ultimate bum like me – barefoot and in the comfort of your home. Sweatpants and sweatshirts are actually showing up in luxury street style looks combined with a juxtapose of sport and couture wear. Wear them with sneakers and a long over-coat for an on-the-run look that’s perfect for quick market and coffee runs.
Want to look more chic and outside appropriate? Swap your sneaks for a pair of pumps or heeled booties. You can wear this more sophisticated version with a full sweatsuit, or alternate sweatpants with a T-shirt or a sweatshirt with a feminine skirt or jeans and a leather motto jacket like Kendall Jenner. Want to flaunt those stems? Skip the pants all together and go for an XL hoodie over biker shorts (just in case you lift your arms too high). Need to see it to believe it? Check out my sweatpants outfits Pinterest board dedicated just to sweatpants and sweatshirt outfit ideas.
Who’s wearing sweatpants in street style and how to pull it off
Gigi, Kendall, Selena, and nearly every high profile casual fashion blogger have been spotted in the trend. They key to the look is picking neutral colors like white, grey, black or blush and pairing them with a couple of luxury accessories and full makeup or sunnies to avoid looking like you just rolled out of bed. If you’re wearing the whole sweatsuit, be sure to go for a coordinating set.
Brands to shop for sweatpants and hoodies
Basics could never be easier (or more affordable). The biggest players in the trend are Champion and even Hanes. Bet you never thought you’d see those names pop up in luxury fashion blogs did you? But, fashion is a fickle beast, and she will have what she wants. What she wants are comfortable, relaxed sweatpants that remind us of the days we had nothing to do on a Saturday but watch TV re-runs and eat leftover pizza.
I have another board just dedicated to Champion sweatpants and sweatshirt outfits after identifying them as a key player. Even Kim K. got in on the action pairing her sweatpants with a t-shirt and her sweatshirts with biker shorts. I got my set from Shopbop after looking at tons of casual sweatpants and sweatshirts. I’ve included the links above for you to shop. Leave your review if you decide to purchase!
I’ve also boughten a couple sets of all white Hanes from Amazon, with a total sweats collection including 2 full-grey sets, 1 black set and 1 white set. Yes, if it fits buy one in every color – especially when you can buy them all probably for the same price as a single luxury fashion purchase from your last order.
Take advantage while the laziest fashion trend for 2019 is still in. Yes, sweatshirt and sweatpants outfits ladies and gents. Stay forever comfy.
