Sweats get a lot of wear in my lifestyle because I pop them on in the morning and at night instead of a robe. I love, love, love cute and comfy loungewear and it’s important that I feel as good in my sweats as I do in daily outfits. I therefore take considerable care in selecting this part of my wardrobe so that I’m not caught off guard when someone unexpectedly knocks on our door.
I prefer extremely soft, roomy, cozy, stretchy loungewear in vibrant colours. I am not a fan of yoga wear or active wear as a lounging option. I personally find that type of gear less comfortable and not as cheerful. Year after year, American Eagle is my go-to place for sweats. I’ve also purchased sweats at Victoria Secret, but American Eagle remains a favourite. I know that I should not be shopping at a teenage store but I can’t help it. They have exactly what I’m after, the price is right and I fancy the collegiate sweat suit look.
Every season, I try to find a more refined and age appropriate sweat suit option, but still no luck. Alternatives are either less soft, ill-fitting, boring in style and gloomy in colour selection. So my loungewear is unsophisticated and high-school. Rightly or wrongly, I feel put together in my juvenile sweats. That’s okay. I don’t have teenagers or babysitters wearing the same look at home. I’m happy hanging onto this youthful look in my late 30’s.
These are the sweats I purchased a few days ago. They are as soft as a baby’s bottom. The hoodies are on special (buy one and get half off the second one).
