Updated Trend of the Moment: Sweat It Out

Looks from Y-3, Yigal Azrouël and Alexander Wang

Spring isn't officially here but the sunnier climes just gave me an opportunity to exchange my coat for a spring attire!

And since designers showed their Spring-Summer 2010 collection in September (or earlier for the men's collection), I'm really excited to witness what the general public will be seeing in fast fashion retailers nationwide. Of course, all the funky stuff won't fly on the streets (I hope), but I'm pretty adamant that the sweatpants look will.

Don't get me wrong, I still think sweats are in no way stylish, unless you're working out. But in some way, it looks appealing. It's very easy to wear, and it's highly liberating! I mean, I haven't seen anyone look aggravated or pained while wearing sweats. And that's why
Juicy Couture's "JUICY" butt-emblazoned sweatpants sold like hotcakes!

Plus the fact that it sends a semi-narcissistic message like "Look, I have time to work out at my own convenience!"

Update: If you ever get the need for hoodies, Balenciaga sure has them ready this season. But, you know, wearing Balenciaga with sweats just isn't right.

i like to wear sweats! of course my sweats are fancier looking than regular target ones (though i dont mind those at all either they are super comfy indeed!) plus i only wear my sweats around the house or for a quick errand out when im lazy to throw on some pants!

very casual, great with those fluffy uggs or bearpaw boots with a white v neck & a hoodie when its cold out!

not sexy. sweats should be for the gym. if you see ppl walking around in them in the streets they just look like lazy bums who cant be bothered to dress up well

for me, sweats are ok if i'm at home. getting dressed up has this empowering feeling. me dressing in sweats isn't impossible. it's just makes me feel weird.

Hmmm... I'm not too fond of going out and wearing sweats. I'd have to agree with Manju, they are better worn in the gym. or at home would be ok, after all they are pretty comfortable.
