Sweat pants - why?!


I don't really have anything against sweatpants, I think they are great for bumming around the house and going to the gym in. What I don't get are people who wear them out - and try to dress them up. Tucking them into your boots and pairing it with a little top and a trendy jacket doesn't take away the fact that they are still sweatpants, and are almost impossible to look good in (yoga pants, however, are great!). I realize they are comfortable, but jeans can also be comfortable, and if you are going to take the effort to wear make up and a nice top, you can take the time to pull on a pair of jeans. There was many a time in university i would feel tempted to go bummy to an exam after staying up cramming all night, but always ended up properly dressed, as i felt it added to my confidence to be normally dressed.

Why are sweat pants worn like this? Is it the comfort, or are university students going for a shabby chic look? It's so hard to look good in them!

And I would never date a guy who wore sweats. Call me a snob, but I am an ass girl and it is almost impossible to see asses in them!

I agree Nessie...not meant to be dressed up at all. As for dating a sweat pants guy, yeah me neither...not because of the a*s thing but more so because I would think if he thinks sweats are appropriate to wear out on a date, that he is just plain lazy. Ah well!

LOL @ 'ass girl' !!!

haha Nessie thats so cute "ass girl" ....LOL !! and yup i completely agree with you! Sweatpants should be worn inside the house or inside the gym - ONLY.

The only thing worse than sweat pants is flanel sweatpants...(sorry i'm drawing a mental blank on what they're actually called).. i'd also not date a guy who wore sweatpants outdoors.. doesn't look good at all!

i could not bring myself to wear them out even for running errands

is it bad to wear them while walking your dog and as a warm outer layer on the way to the gym?

even the sweatpants i have are considered 'fancy' i guess...they have all sorts of embroidery and rhinestones on them...but i still only wear them to the gym and when walking my dog-maybe an EARLY starbucks run (i mean early-7am).

sweatpants out -two thumbs down

I totally agree with you. Sweatpants are a nono for outside, especially if you look like you DEFINITELY haven't used them for exercising in a long, long time.

How about...

those who wear their yoga pants and put on full makeup and hair with heels.
Why would anyone wear heels with their yoga pants? I see this all the time with younger girls and it makes me laugh. I believe sweats, yoga and track pants are meant for the gym, jogging or lazing about the house.

As for oversized t-shirts and comfy jeans that's the kind of lazy weekend wear that I am all for (as long as they are clean and hole-less)

People just have different opinions.

I guess what everyone consider as visually pleasant differs. You might think sweatpants look unpleasant and shapeless, but some likes the casual and laid-back look. *shrugs*
