This week’s Recovering Sweat Pants Addict Challenge outfit is all about the black. Anyone who owns yoga pants probably owns a pair in black. This matte black fabric (called luon when the pants or tops are from lululemon) was a huge boon for fitness apparel companies, because you can pair matte fitness apparel with regular clothing, instead of looking like you forgot your work pants after you went to the gym.
This was the outfit I wore when I went to work on Sunday for a Super Bowl event. It was the weekend, so I didn’t feel the need to dress up overmuch, and let’s face it… Super Bowl isn’t the paragon of fancy (unless you’re Madonna, of course). But, I was going to work, so I wanted to make sure that I looked sufficiently pulled together and professional. The easiest way to do this is by wearing black. While an all-black outfit isn’t an instant recipe for an amazing outfit, there is something about a head-to-toe black outfit that has a level of chicness that you just don’t get with any other kind of colour combination – monochromatic or otherwise. And wearing a hot pink scarf also let the rest of the outfit exist in the background, making the focus my face, not my yoga pants.
