With the growing popularity of casual sportswear for both men and women, sweatpants are not what they used to be. No longer reserved for the couch on lazy Sundays, sweats are not only now acceptable in public, but encouraged. Just know when to trade them for a nicer pair of jeans or slacks (work, dinner, a date and anything formal). Kanye West helped popularize the drop-crotch style, and brands like J.Crew made tailored styles look clean and, dare we say, classy. It’s time to upgrade your old, worn sweats with a few fresh pairs from brands like Diesel and T by Alexander Wang. Take a look through our edit of sweats you can wear at the gym and on the street.
