Sweatpants have an undeniable connection with lounging about and being comfortable. They’re soft, cozy, and usually loose-fitting. These same attributes are also what make them better suited for wearing on the weekends or going on a 5K jog in the morning. This sloppy connotation can easily be rectified by wearing slim sweats—the ones that have been seen on sneaker guys and those across the fashion industry for the past few seasons.

Not only do they fit better, but their appearance is radically different from what someone wear when they're sick or throw back a few slices of pizza and light beers on the weekend. By looking for something slim, it's the first step into integrating sweats into the workplace.
