How to wear sweat/jogging-style pants
so this is more and more common and i'm liking the idea...

been trying to work out how i want to wear them...
the biggest issue i have is the footwear...
i've tried everything from thong sandals to booties...

anyone have any suggestions?!...

thanks in advance...

I've only worn tailored pants made from sweatpant-fabric, and with high-heeled booties or pumps. I've seen regular sweats styled with short boots and it can work, if you also keep the top and accessories somewhat dressy, I think.

^^^yeah-
that's what i was thinking too...
i have some open toe lace up heels that i think would look great ---
my only issue is how high the heel is...
not the most comfy thing in the world for everyday wear, ya know~?...
but they look fab~!
:p

I´m not inventing anything but I would wear them with stilettos or some suede short and rounded booties (i mean short... you should see all the ankle). I would also wear the sweatpants shortish...

Here´s a pic of Gwyneth in sweatpants with booties

I would prefer suede in a very pale tan....

Your pants are very nice....I´m a melange gray junkie....all shades and colors....brand?

hey princesita-
these ones are by philip lim...
i didn't buy them actually-i got some others from sacai but i have no pic...
:p

i also think that they would look good with some wrestling shoes or high top sneakers...
and even with some combat boots...

basically- i think they would be good tucked into something short as well as with something shorter that shows the band...

i think they have to have a band at the ankle to look good-
ie- i am not sold on any of the ones shown on figure in this thread...

i wore mine last night finally...
i wore them with blk suede ankle booties and a cutaway blazer from yohji yamamoto...
yay!

^ sounds good soft!
I'm surprised no one has mentioned yet this one pic (from garancedore.fr)


Such a perfect outfit! I think I especially like the colors (black, grey, and taupe). I don't personally own a pair of pants like these, but I think I'd want to pair them in some kind of low key way, like with a black linen tee and flat sandals, like these ones from Opening Ceremony:

^Yeah that's how I would wear them if I had any. A pair of booties with a little bit of a heel and with a low shaft.
Or perhaps as mentioned previously, a pair of lace up heels with an open toe. A bit like the infamous Ann Demeulemeester ones.

- IMO what is most important is that the footwear isn't too 'pretty pretty' and that a bit of flesh is visible. Either a bit of ankle or a bit of the foot itself. I think something like these old sneaker hybrids from Dries would look great as well.
