I know this has been being done for a while now but I love the new wave of thinking that sweatpants as an acceptable form of going out attire. I am not saying we should ditch the jean or chinos completely but maybe they can get a rest for a while as a nice pair of tapered sweatpants paired with boot, high-tops or brogues can make a smart outfit, which is ontrend and without a lot of fuss. Here are some cool money saving options
Zara £19.99

ASOS £28

Zara £25.99

A slightly more expensive for the hipsters is Acne, the Swedish brand again nail casual cool to perfection.  The great thing about sweatpants is their ability to be dressed up or down. They really are great for wearing with a shirt and a blazer, but they are also cool with a t-shirt and jacket. If done correctly you can create a modern day James Dean/Steve McQueen look.
Acne £150

Yet the elder generation or les fashion forward f us should not fret, even the so called traditional fashion houses are doing it. With brands such as Paul Smith showing in the A/W 10 and now Bottega Veneta for S/S 11 the look is clearly here to stay and available from high street to high end.
Paul Smith £265
Bottega Veneta S/S 11
