Comfy Confusion
Aren't sweatshirts and sweatpants meant to be worn in the privacy of your own home? Who would want to be seen in public looking like they rolled out of bed? 
So, how is it that this trend has become immensely popular?

This trend is the perfect mix of comfort and style. Overall, this trend is combining traditional fleece items into trendy pieces. 
Lately, stores such as Aritzia, Anthropologie, and Bloomingdales have exemplifying this trend in a modern way. For example, Aritzia took the tedious fleece sweatshirt, and turned it into a cozy fleece with a cape silhouette. Easy to wear and extremely trendy. 




Another key item that should go under "comfy confusion" is sweatpants that act as trousers. Most of the time the pajama-pant trend is incorporated into this pant but these pants are definitely more like original sweatpants, commonly this pant has a drawstring-waist, comes in any fabric and is slim fit.

These pieces are very easy to style because most of the time a casual yet stylish look is wanted with them. Pants such as the above could be worn with any flat, or if you want to take a big fashion risk, heels!

Many people on the street have even been seen wearing the classic sweatpants with heels, however in this case these are classic sweatpants:

Sweatpants like these can be purchased practically anywhere
*Keep in mind if you are willing to take a risk like this, but are still hesitant, go for more slim fit sweatpants because they look much more structured than baggy sweatpants *
