fancy swetapants are the new birkenstock sandals of the fashion world

It’s the eve of New York Fashion Week, and things are about to get real high fashion up in this bitch. Which is why, before all the crazy runway show coverage started, we thought we’d pull you aside for a moment to have a little discussion. High-fashion sweatpants are a thing now. Yes, they are. And that is not okay.

Fancy sweatpants are nothing new, but it does seem that we’re reaching the apex of fancy sweatpants. They’re featured in a new ad for shoe brand Etienne Aigner. J. Crew devoted a fair amount of its latest collection to the sweats-with-heels look. Of course, J. Crew sweats aren’t your average $8 Kmart pair — they’re expensive.  Not as expensive as, say, this $842 pair of wool sweatpants from goth fashion maven Rick Owens, but you get the idea. And just like how Birkenstocks began appearing in high-fashion editorials a few months ago, supposedly christened fashionable by Anna Wintour herself, the fancy sweatpant [High-fashion pants are always singular, FYI. PANT. SweatPANT. -- Amelia] appears poised to be the latest low-to-high fashion transformation.

But here’s the thing! Keep reading »

Amelia’s Style Challenge: Three Summer Pants Outfits For Under $300

amelia style challenge

You know how it’s so annoying the way some people refer to a pair of pants as a “pant”? Well, sorry to say, I have become one of those people. I say this, because Amelia recently came to me asking for advice on how to expand her pant selection in the summer months. After all, it’s not so comfortable wearing skinny jeans in 90 degree heat, now is it? Amelia was looking for something soft and flowy, silky and comfortable — and, of course, reflective of her preppy-meets-downtown style.

1. Asos Tapered Pants, $59.40
2. Elizabeth and James Trent Paisley Pants $79
3. Yumi Kim Tania Pants, $68
4. GoMax Calantha Sandal, $44.95
5. Swell Jordan Everyday Woven Tank, $24.50
6. GAP Bleecker Striped Tank, $22.95

After the jump, see how I put it all together, and how you can create three totally awesome outfits for under $300, from top to toe.

Way back in the day, my grandma had a crocheted afghan in her living room that looked exactly like these pants. I used to wrap myself up in it on her cozy couch to watch Nickelodeon while she plied me for family gossip with treats from the candy drawer. I had no idea that one day someone would take that blanket, sew it in the vague shape of pants, and sell it for 300 bucks at Neiman Marcus. [$297, Neiman Marcus]

These crazy colorful pants caught my eye on Pinterest,  because really, how could they not? The multicolored kaleidoscopic print makes neon pink jeggings seem totally bland. They’re definitely visually interesting, but not exactly easy to wear. Tell us: would you dare to rock these fancy pants? [$90, Modcloth]

Printed pants are hot right now, but these penis leggings take prints to an arousing level. Take a closer look. That’s a d**k print.  Suffice it to say, I must own these “Is that a c**k or your legs?” pants even though they cost $150. I will wear them all the time, and wear them proudly. I believe they are what you’d call a conversation piece. [Dlisted]

10 Pairs Of Really Ugly, Super Expensive Designer Pants

As wise poet and personal role model LuAnn deLesseps once crowed — actually she autotuned it — “money can’t buy you class.” Money also can’t buy you style, as evidenced by the wide array of horribly ugly pants on offer by high end designers these days. Do you have $600 and no abiding sense of taste and the desire to look like a meth-addict out for her first post-prison cig break? We’ve got some really wowzer designer trousers just for you. Check them out in our gallery of wildly overpriced ugly pants.
