sweat pants to class
wearing sweat pants to class – a do or do not?
i can’t lie, when i was a freshman, i wore sweats alll the time to my 8am journalism class. it was cold and disgusting out, i crawled out of bed at 7;46 to be there by 8, and i looked like a hot mess on a regular basis. this semester, i have another 8 am, and there are plenty of people, girls and guys, that show up to class in their sweats. in fact, yesterday i noticed a guy and a girl rockin’ the same pair of red northeastern huskies sweats. embarrassing? slightly?
i make an effort to look decent on tuesdays and fridays for my 8 am, maybe because i have class straight from 8am until 1;30pm, but also because i dont feel like showing up to three classes looking like a total slob. for me, it’s just as easy to throw on a pair of jeans a vneck and a cute patterned scarf with my hoops than it is to wear baggy sweats, uggs and a sweatshirt. i will admit that on the day after i came back from the ER, i wore my yoga pants and baggy hanes mens tshirt to class, looking like ass. but i had just spent 8 hours in the hospital, so i think i had a legitimate excuse.
the sweatshirt is another thing that a lot of people wear that while i used to rock, i just cant anymore. i had tons of group sweatshirts in high school – i was in leadership, i was a peer helper and i was in charge of the school newspaper. i had group sweatshirts spilling out of my closet [in fact, i think they still are, which my mother keeps whining at me to throw out]. i have a turquoise northeastern sweatshirt that i love but never wear because even though its a small its still huge and baggy on me, and i have my old ‘might morphin peer helpers’ sweatshirt which i love but never think to wear. its just my preference these days to throw on a beater and a cardigan. i do have two sweatshirts that i wear on occasion – one is a thinner red northeastern pull over that i really like, and the other is a grey pullover from american eagle with thin white and dark purple stripes. even still, i cant remember the last time i wore either of them.
there are definitely girls who show up to class wearing cute PINK sweats and plain tops, with their hair pulled back and a headband on that don’t look too sloppy. but at the same time, if you put the effort into looking good in your sweats, how much harder is it to wear those same sneakers with your jeans? and i totally understand the comfort thing, i guess im just comfortable in my jeans.
i have to admit, i love these. not sure i’d be motivated to pay $34.50 on them, but dont get me wrong – i love sweats and yoga pants in general. in fact, i am wearing my boyfriends old aeropostale sweats that no longer fit him, and they are the comfiest things in the whole world.
of course when i selected these on the site, victoria secret sent me right to this:
i would probably want to puke if i saw somebody wearing both of these at the same time, and this hoodie is $34.50, but theres no doubt that i could see myself wearing this with layered green and pink tank tops and jeans. i might like it better in this color…
i also came across these…
for $69.50, you can get bling on your sweats. im dead serious.
i feel like this pair is more like the standard every day pair of PINK sweats that most girls own. i dont like the splatter on the side, but the peace sign at the bottom is super cute. i have a light pink pair that say PINK across the butt in dark pink letters. my best friend got them for me for hannukah a few years ago, and even though i think theyre super cute, i never wear em because the elastic at the bottom makes them uncomfortable to sleep in, and i never wear sweats outside my apartment. maybe ill pull em out of my drawer and wear them around the apartment more often.
