If the frigid temps across the country have you pulling out those cozy, comfortbale and above all, warm sweatpants, then you might want to take a gander at this slideshow.

I first saw this trend on some website but passed it off as fashion sensationalism but apparently this trend may have some staying power. I hope it doesn't catch on! I try to be open-minded but this is a little too far. Stilettos with sweatpants?


I can see wearing nice floor- grazing length bootcut elastic waist yoga pants with a semi-dressy top and some pumps because yoga pants can usually pass for nicer pants. I've worn this look for work at it passes no problem. But the sweatpants in these pics are the frumpy elastic ankle-cuffed style with drawstrings... no thanks!


As an aside, I recently saw a middle-aged attractive woman who was wearing a purple velvet track suit with spiked heels. She did seem to pull off the look but it's not for me.

My sister gave me some sweatpants that don't have the elastic ankle cuff and aren't as baggy as regular sweats, but they're warm and comfy. I haven't worn them with stilettos and doubt I ever will, but they look good with boots (doesn't everything?LOL) and I've worn them that way more than a few times this winter. I didn't even realize I was following a trend, I was just trying to stay warm! ;-)

This is the only winter I've worn sweatpants anywhere but at home; two snowfalls in one winter have been hard on this ole southern gal! LOL
