Sweatpants used to be the unofficial shorthand for giving up. The pithy reply when any starlet or fashion maven was asked about the one thing she would never wear. The signifier to the world that you’re opting out, maybe for the evening, maybe for longer. A uniform reserved for Netflix and chill, and hiding from the world, though comfortably.

Maybe it’s the birth of a new wave of feminism, or maybe athleisure has finally taken over, but sweatpants aren’t just accepted now, they’re welcomed, celebrated even—featured alongside your best Bottega and Prada on Insta. See who’s making sweatpants look like the best idea since, well, sweatpants.

Oversized sweats, a great chain, and a simple ribbed tank is our idea of a Saturday night look.
