The wise Karl Lagerfeld once said, "Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants.” The designers at Rag & Bone must have missed that one, or they just DGAF because they’ve created the laziest fashion trend to date: sweatjeans.
So, ok. I don't want to be a traitor to my generation and all, but I don't understand how gym clothes works today.
We all remember last year when track pants became trendy and big name designers were creating flattering drawstring and leather sweats, but these sweatjeans are no run-of-the-mill jeggings. These are modeled after a men's denim line, so I'm afraid frumpy butts and square hips are going to be all the rage… otherwise Rag & Bone just really missed the mark.
Sweatjeans are 100% cotton sweatpants that have a printed image of denim on them so you can feel lazy while still looking
lazy normal. Rag & Bone has created a few different "styles" of these monstrosities, some called "Pajama Jeans". Personally I think "sweatjeans" at least gives the illusion of movement, while "pajama jeans" send the message "I wish I weren't here so badly I'm still wearing pj's but trying to trick you with fashun."
The worst part? You'll see every model off duty wearing these as soon as the pre-order deliveries come through.
