Urban Outfitter

I've been really skeptical of the sweatpants as outerwear look, but this ELLE Italia editorial did it right! There's a fine line between looking sloppy like you just rolled out of beds and like a perfectly slouchy, causal city girl.

I think this editorial really captures the feeling of living in a city; people aren't always dressed to the nines like Carrie Bradshaw, but they have their own unique and comortable style.

How do you feel about the sweatpants & sweatshirts look making its way into fashion?

I think it all depends on how you style and wear them.

I think it just mean you have to use a bit more creativity is all! I wear sweatshirts every now and then myself. Its quite impressive how that model made those sweatpants look good with that blazer!

Sweats as gorgeous as these should definitely be worn out and about. I reckon they'd be so comfortable and they look so chic.

I'm usually a jeans kinda girl, but I don't mind the trend....as long as there's some polish & style to it :)

Love this editorial, it's made me wish I could dress to casually. I'm normally found in heels and people are surprised when I wear flats!

It's definitely hard to pull off without looking sloppy. And I'm not a fan of the sweat shorts.

thanks for adding me to your links! <3
I think when done right - this look can be amazing. I'm sad to say I was more skeptical about this look because of Rachel Zoe's opinions on sweatpants - a Big NO NO! but yah know.. I'm a college student.. A. sometimes sweatpants are the only things that are clean and B. they're comfy as heck when you have to get up at the butt crack of dawn to trek across campus to take a pointless test. haha and that's my shpeel on that!

I don't think I'd ever attempt it, but great editorial!

I am loving the sweatpant trend and i think it looks quite fashionable. I especially like how this editorial has accesorized them so casually.

very cute, ill have to give it a try one day. Might be hard to pull off, this model could make a potatoe sack look chic.

not really feeling the sweatpants lok alot because i feel they will always have a certain label of laziness attached to them...which is sad because they are so comfy and looks so cute in this editorial!
