I never thought the day would come when sweat pants would become a high fashion item, but this industry is full of surprise! The Spring 2010 catwalks were packed with sportswear, particularly Alexander Wang where retro American leisurewear made a statement. Wang played with shape with relaxed trousers, layers and cropped tops.
Sweat pants have emerged as a key item and are essentially an extension of harem pants. They have the same relaxed shape, with a softer finish. Some high street stores (like Whistles) are already getting in on the trend where they team the item with stacked platform heels to avoid looking to relaxed! Will you wear sportswear this Spring?
