This Anti-Legging Trend Is Officially Happening

There's no doubt about it, joggers are one of the defining trends of 2020. Yep, sweatpant outfits are practically eclipsing other wardrobe basics among the fashion set. Equal parts comfortable and cool, it's easier to see why they're sticking around in our new day-to-day lives. Much like the suiting trends that have emerged this year—where bigger proportions and looser silhouettes have been winning out over body-skimming shapes—athleisure has been growing more relaxed and pyjama-like with jogger silhouettes replacing formfitting leggings.

So what are the best ways to wear sweatpants outfits? Taking some notes from fashion insiders, there are plenty of chic ways to style them whether worn with structured blazers and sneakers or chunky knits and combat boots. Go on to get inspiration for cool ways to wear sweatpants outfits right now, and shop the looks. I’ll personally be adopting these ideas for upcoming looks.
