Instead of your cropped pants feeling beads of sweat dripping down your body as you impatiently get through an hour on the treadmill, now they can feel your beaded shirt bouncing freely in the warm breeze as your heels stomp down on the street! Designers have exuded this comfortable alternative down runways in the past and again brought it back this year, keeping this trend’s heart pulsating.

Even though this trend seems like an easy one in the bag because of its comfort, it can be the most challenging to carry out. People, possibly those who don’t have a fashion sense, have an attitude towards sweats and may think those wearing them are lethargic. Wrong! This trend can be dressed up not only for daily errands but also even for a night out with the girls.

Take a look at jeggings. They were the undercover comfort that were deceiving to the eyes. With these cropped sweatpants, were pulling the mask off and bravely stepping forward to prove that fashion and comfort can intertwine.

How can anyone pass this trend up! Explore these pieces for starters.
