When one thinks of upscale, chic, and glamorous fashion, sweatpants are typically furthest from those descriptors. However, the new, mod sweatpants have made their way onto the fashion scene, and fabulously so. The greatest feature of the sweatpants trend is its ability to transition—they can be dressed up, worn casually, or dressed down. Price points for this look vary between $30 to over $300, depending on quality, design and label. Columbia fashionistas can find this trend at various retailers, like Macy’s, Barney’s New York (in which case, one would have to go online to www.barneys.com), and Lucky Brand. This a trend absolutely worth exploring.
