Wearing A Sweatsuit Is No Longer A Fashion Faux Pas

Sweatsuits were originally worn by athletes to keep themselves warm and their muscles relaxed prior to a competition. It was later accepted as mainstream in the 70s after actors such as Bruce Lee, Sly Stallone and Danny Zuko wore sweatsuits in iconic films (read: Game of Death, Rocky and Grease respectively).

But it was the 00s when the look went through a tricky stage with Paris Hilton’s iconic Juicy Couture iterations in velour styles. However, the sweatsuit has recently staged a comeback with some of the hottest brands and A-listers donning this signature off-duty look.
