Campus Style: Trendy sweatpants

From celebrities to students on campus, the “athleisure” trend is the new movement. No matter where I go, I always see people fashionably strutting around in their sweatpants. Whether it’s joggers, boot cut or the elastic ankle style, sweatpants are a staple in any wardrobe.

You may think sweatpants are for hanging around the house during the day, but now people are wearing them everywhere. Models are walking down the runway in sweatpants and heels, inspiring others to do the same. At least once a day, I’ll see a new celebrity showing off this style on social media. Personally, I don’t think you’d catch me in joggers and stilettos, but never say never when it comes to fashion.

The next comfortable trend would have to be leggings. Every season there are many new styles coming out—short, cropped or full length. In each category, there are countless different types to choose from. From different patterns to cutouts, the possibilities are endless. The great thing about leggings is that every clothing store carries them. You can find trendy leggings at Target, Lululemon and even in the Barnes & Noble at Campus Town.

Curious about what to pair with your leggings? My favorite is an oversized crew neck sweatshirt. Pair this outfit with sneakers and you have a comfortable outfit for the day. Now that the weather has finally gotten colder, I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of these outfits around campus as people try to keep warm and comfortable. Enjoy wearing sweatpants to class while you can, because not many jobs will allow you dress this casually!
