Of course, leather sweatpants, duh, what a no-brainer!
Who would like to try their hand at some Refinery 29 style prose for this…wardrobe essential?
($895 at Shopbop.)
MG! I am putting them on my Christmas list as we speak….what a train wreck!
I’m shocked no one thought of it earlier!?!?!
Like a broken in leather couch from the 80s, except wrapped around your legs. Enjoy lounging in lazy luxury while watching Dynasty reruns and refreshing Sea of Shoes’ page.
Is there a fashion school somewhere where people go to learn how to make ugly crap that no one will wear? Or maybe all of the Shopbop “designers” are actually 5th graders or something. Sheesh.
Forget workouts just walkout in our leather sweatpants. Twice the sweat.
an outfit is best when ambiguous. is she going for a motorcycle ride? to the office? the loony bin? the gym?
impeccable, confusing, hideous. perfection.
I saw some of these at the Salvation Army last winter. They reeked of smoke and sadness. Apparently it’s been done before and donated. Besides these pants look like those rubber suits people wear to sweat while they workout.
well what do you expect, us fashionistas can’t go to yoga in STRETCH pants, that would be PRACTICAL.
OMGod! I would totally rock these with open-toe sneakers (studded perhaps?) and a Juicy velour track jacket. A satin iteration paired with a gilded mallard belt would be more appropriate for doing rails off the toilet seat when at tha club. Woot woot!!
These effortlessly chic leather sweatpants are a versatile instant-classic that add a little edge to any wardrobe. Rock them with studded open toe booties and a slouchy lace tank to complete the high/low look. Throw on an oversized boyfriend blazer for dinner or a gallery opening, or a timeless sequined sweatshirt for holiday parties.
Oops, Tanya already said she’d rock them with studded open-toe shoes. Sorry! I guess leather sweatpants are just begging to be rocked in such a way.
Um, NO! And, why?
Good job Em, very convincing. Of course they should be worn with heels+platform shoes/booties (sorry Anna W., I know “we don’t say booties”!), open toes are de rigeur, I’m considering getting a timeless sequined sweatshirt now in anticipation of my office party.
Tanya -“gilded mallard belt” = superb!
Em – the Timeless Sequined Sweatshirt…this is so insanely rad I want to cry happy tears.
Cricket9 – Please please get one, maybe they’re on sale somewhere!
Luxurious insouciance at its finest!
….and here i was thinking velour was the height of bad taste in sweat pants
hideous! (unlike your blog which is oh so fab!!!! love reading your posts!)
Enjoy lounging around leather sweatpants from ___ (insert weird brand here). We guarantee you, these pants are infinitely more chic than your regular variety often seen at the gym, but also more comfortable than traditional leather pants that make you look like Draco Malfoy with greasy hair. Do not attempt to do any sort of physical activity in them, however, these pants are more suited to posing draped over a sofa, provided the pants don’t squeak when you sit down.
Who wouldn’t feel like a million bucks in these luxe-chic motosweats by Haute Hippie? Pair them with a pair of our lace up sneaker wedge studded booties by Jeff Campbell and a floral chiffon open back blouse with built in corset.
Taylor – HAHahahahha, that blouse sounds so effortlessly uncomfortable!
Taylor- These… things don’t need hangers. DÃ©solÃ©, but even the french double c word* is too big for you. You lose the title.
My favourite blog BY FAR!
Love this post! And all the readers have outdone themselves- I am ROTFL with your descriptions! Oh, and can anyone tell me where I can buy a Timeless Sequined Sweatshirt?
Hmmm. Maybe they’re truly sweatpants. Like a mobile sauna.
Sad but true. I don’t mind them. But I’d be too worried about the squeaky walking…
Well, there seems to be quite a demand for a Timeless Sequined Sweatshirt. I’m sure there is one to be had somewhere – a bastard child of a sweatshirt and a Timeless Sequined Christmas Sweater.
i’d like to pair these with a tank top hand-constructed of recycled Depends and finish the entire look off with a fentanyl patch
wow and only $895, such a steal
What’s next, velvet?
Ok, I’m going to admit it. I made something extremely similar for my graduate collection, haha. And, what’s even better (worse?), I actually wear them.
I’m pretty sure my thoughts behind them were: I like leather, I like Hammer pants. Comprende!
(note to self: think more logically)
Absolutely Fabulous, anyone? Oh c’mon Sweetie darlings . . .
Ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha the price hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
Have a fantastic day! Thanks for sharing. :0
