New York Fashion Week famously sets the fashion curve the rest of the world follows—it’s not unusual for designers to show work that skews to the bizarre, impractical, and just plain outrageous. Even so, this year’s fashion week suggested a trend I don’t think anyone could have predicted. Designers went gaga over gray, fleecy, oh-so-comfy…sweatpants??

A slew of statuesque models hit the runway sporting nothing but the finest sweatpants, sweatshirts, and judging by the last photo, see-through sweatdresses.

I love my ratty old sweatpants on a chilly evening, and I’m not ashamed to wear them to the corner market. On a really raucous night, I might even accentuate the look with no makeup and giant circles under my eyes. I don’t know if I could be convinced to don my finest sports bra in order to wear that last little dishy number, though.

So is this the runway at its most ridiculous, or do you predict a sweatpant trend this season?

    Hi Charisse,
    I guess I hadn’t thought of it that way–although I don’t know if I can retrain my brain to wrap around the concept of “skinny sweats!” Would you wear these out and about?

    It’s just that, fashion for going to the store. They are skinny and ruched-ish at the ankle, different than the bells we’ve been wearing with our zip up hoodies.
