It's that time of year again! Time to spend some "quality time" with your family and sit around the table until you feel more stuffed than the turkey. There's little I crave more after holiday dinner than my cozy (elastic waistband) sweatpants and favorite sweatshirt, but this year lets give back our boyfriend's hoodie and try something just as comfy but so much more chic. These luxe leisurewear pieces give you the same cozy feelings you're craving...wrapped in a cloud of cashmere.
Plus, these pieces are fashionable enough to wear outside the house as well. Sure, Karl Lagerfeld once said that "sweatpants are a sign of defeat." But the following gallery proves otherwise—leisurewear has taken over! Designer-branded hoodies, off-duty models in full sweatsuits: We've finally shaken off the shame of sweats.
