Fall 2013 Trend: Stylish Sweats

Sometimes, you just want to spend your whole day in a cozy sweatshirt. No matter how chic you are, we've all had those days. Luckily, the most innovative designers have recognized this need for lazy attire and filled this gap with an array of lounge-worthy threads. With a mélange of punky graphics and fierce prints, this trend gifts us with a warm and comfortable way to take on this fashion-forward season. A departure from kitschy knits, tastemakers such as Ashley Benson, Ciara, and Lily Collins have all been spotted rocking this fad. Gone are the days when wearing a sweatshirt is associated with being sartorially slacking off. With the right sweatshirt, your ensemble can prove that you're at the vanguard of on-the-pulse fashion.

Though sweatshirts are usually coupled with mismatched sweatpants or a pair of jeans, I urge you to avoid these pieces (unless you want to pair this look with boxy, boyfriend jeans) like you'd refrain from insulting Hedi Slimane. Instead, revitalize your style by sporting this coveted piece with a sheer skirt a la Givenchy or even a slouchy pair of trousers. You'll be just as comfortable as you would be if you wore sweatpants; however, your outfit will be both polished and forward-thinking. If you'd rather show some leg, opt for dressy shorts or a leather mini skirt. Since these picks are so inspired, add complementary accessories to this getup. Let's just say you definitely won't be disappointed with the final product.
