With rain in the air and winter on its way I thought this was the perfect day for this blog post. Recently, I saw a quote by Karl Lagerfeld floating around the social media world. According to Karl, “Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants.” I wasn’t surprised that this came from Mr. Lagerfeld. His quotes are something that makes him unique, and well, he’s Karl…..come on. I was however shocked by how many women, many in the fashion community, strongly supported his statement. And my reaction was, “REALLY!?”
So today I write in my favorite Victoria’s Secret PINK sweatpants. I’m the owner of many pairs, and yes I’m also a fashionista. I’m not defeated, but rather empowered. I wear sweatpants not because I’ve lost control, but because I like to be comfortable. This model is styled on point with a hoodie, pant, Converse trifecta. She’s ready for errands, lunch, shopping, you name it, and still looks good while staying cozy. I support all the real women out there who rock their sweatpants, and think those who judge take themselves just a little too seriously.
