Style on Trial: Sweat pants with heels

Sweat pants with heels: you like?

Jogging pants with heels: you like?

As we noted (with no small amount of concern, we might add) earlier this month, the December issue of UK Vogue informs us that sweat pants are THE trousers to be seen in this season, and that every well-dressed woman will be wearing them – not with sneakers, though: with heels.

The image above, from, is the first evidence we’ve found of this “trend” in action, but far be it for us to doubt what Vogue tells us, so we wanted to ask you: what do you think of this look? It’s lounge wear-meets-office-wear, casual-meets-dressy, comfort-meets-formal, er, jogging pants meets stilettos, but do these contradictions make you jump for joy and yell “At last! Now I get to wear my old sweatpants ALL THE TIME and call it ‘fashion’!” or do you just give a small shudder and say, “Only if you paid me, and it would depend how much?”

We know what WE think, but what do you think, ladies and gentlemen of the Fashion Police jury?
