Sporting sweatpants in public was once the ultimate fashion faux pas. Now, thanks to people like Alexander Wang and Kanye West, rocking a pair of a sweatpants without looking like an 80s gym teacher is considered a sartorial coup. It could even earn you a shout out in Instyle.
Tina Phan, a San Francisco lawyer who documents her impeccable looks on her blog, Phasionable, is Instyle.com's Reader of the Week for her fetching Vince sweatpants + Nine West heels + Chanel bag ensemble. She told the mag that she paired high-heeled sandals with the pants to dress the look up, "but the outfit was still comfortable and chic at the same time." Hmm… National attention for nailing a hard-to-wear trend? Tina sounds like Blogstar material.
