Balancing Act: Comfort & Fashion

Has the sweatsuit made a comeback? You would be forgiven for thinking so. Designer runways and celebrity trend setters have pushed the boundaries of fashion to a new comfort realm. The dizzying popularity of Vêtements has inspired men and women alike to trade in their buttoned up business attire, for a trendy sweatpant or a tongue-and-cheek tee.

This has left many wondering…

Is it appropriate for work? Unless you are in a creative field, probably not.

Can I pull it off at parties? Depends on the scenario and your friends of course, but I wouldn’t aim to woo too many lovers.

How about a trip to the mall? Full sweats may be too blasé, but pair sweatpants with a cool tee and a blazer and you are solid.

For me, the sweatsuit will always hold a dearly nostalgic place in my heart. However it will remain relegated to outdoor adventures, weekend morning jaunts and late night cravings.
