The late Karl Lagerfeld once said, ‘sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life, so you bought some sweatpants’. However, when lockdown restrictions came into place, our regular wardrobe – dresses, jeans and knits, tailored blazers, and skirt and blouses – was swapped for one consisting of more leisurely loungewear (even Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour added sweatpants to her work-from-home wardrobe) . Now, that restrictions are being eased and we’re returning to a new normal, what to do with all of the hoodies, joggers, tracksuits and knitted co-ords that are sitting in your wardrobe? Style them for beyond the house!
Model and businesswoman Emily Ratajkowski is the queen to take inspiration from. She’s regularly papped on the streets of New York and LA walking gorgeous dog Colombo wearing joggers paired with crop tops, oversized jackets – from denim to puffer - and trainers. Model Hailey Bieber is also another master at styling sweatpants. The blonde beauty is regularly spotted in colourful tracksuits or joggers and knitwear combos.
