Run For It!

Alexander Wang elevated the humble jersey sweatpant and top to fashion items this year. 

I'm not complaining, it was about time companies out there starting offering jersey basics once again. My faithful Uniqlo grey slightly shrunken sweatshirts that I bought in, ooooh...2001 were fraying at the seams and had gone a bit stiff from over washing, but until recently there had been nowhere to get a decent replacement.

Now I am spoilt. Gap have had some great offerings, American Apparel do a grey thermal legging that looks wonderful on, Bonds out in Australia centred an entire campaign around a new style of trackie dak and Whistles did some luxe wool mix bottoms in a harem style that are super comfy but do little to flatter the behind.  

As a woman who likes comfort the jersey thing is a trend I will be persevering with through Autumn - and these are the images that are currently rocking my world...

The luxe take - Vionnet with YSL shoes (yes please to both)

Andi from Stylescrapbook - I love how tight these are on the calves - perfect!

Vanessa from The Haute Pursuit with an enviably amazing stomach to boot. 

Camille from Childhood Flames - she is so understated and chic. It's hard to believe she's just in her teens.

Acne sweatpants courtesy of mode d'amour  - I love the pairing of the pants with loafers and tucking in the shirt.

These ladies look fab but I'm pretty sure that I'd look totally daft in sweats. ;)
