EQT Hawthorne 7/8 Pants by adidas Originals

Wearing sweatpants as actual pants requires having a decent pair. Different to the tattered trackies you’ve had for years, new season track pants have a more tailored fit that taper towards the ankle and can be cropped for a more contemporary silhouette. In layman’s terms, they’ve got the same feel as sweatpants but they look a little nicer.

Ethan Sweater by Fila

With this trend, wearing sweats head to toe is not only acceptable but encouraged. As mentioned above, you do have to apply the same rule of owning a decent set to pull off the look. Sets that actually match is the best way to go, but if that’s not an option then stick to matching tonal colours and complete the look with a fresh pair of kicks.

Men's Nike Sportswear Tech Fleece Pants

Once you’ve gotten yourself a nice pair of track pants, you can then start working them into your everyday looks. Teamed with the right shirt, jacket and shoes, you can get away with wearing your joggers to more dressed up occasions.

Basic Crew Neck Sweatshirt by Lacoste

Just as you did with your sweatpants, you can also elevate your sweatshirts to have the same dressed up feel. Just add a smart jacket over the top, match with a pair of modern tailored pants, and finish with yet another pair of sneakers.

Now that you’ve realised you can basically live in sweats, it’s time to add more to your collection.
