5 Cute Sweatpants for When You Want to Wear Pajamas in Public

Sometimes the best things in life come from combining two unlikely entities. Evidence? Pizookies (Google this), winescream (I repeat, Google this), and, more recently, athleisure. Basically, all you need to know about athleisure is these three magic words: Sweatpants. In. Public. Now, if any of you have seen me around campus before 12 pm, you’ll know that I, like many others, have been rocking the gym-clothes-to-class look way before it became a thing—I guess you could call me a trendsetter. But with its rise in popularity, there are now so many more options available. Scroll to see how to swap out your pizza-stained, high school track joggers for something just as cozy, but a million times cuter.
