If you’ve been living in sweats and sportswear of late (read: the entire last year), then good news: the new Sean John x Missguided is going to keep it that way. But cuter.
There's no doubt about it, joggers were the defining look of 2020. And honestly, we’re almost halfway through 2021 and slouchy, sweatpant-related outfits still continue to entice us more than any of the flouncy summer dresses still begging to be taken for a socially distant day out. As comfy as they are cool, it's easy to see why so many of us would be reluctant to give them up as we slowly move towards reality. But just because we’ll be returning to certain ways of life doesn’t mean we have to ditch them entirely. Much like the tailoring or dress trends that have rocketed over recent years—where looser shapes and supersized proportions have dominated over bodycon—athleisure has been growing more and more relaxed with 90’s-style tracksuit silhouettes even replacing our beloved leggings. And now, as we move towards a summer spent outdoors, in restaurants and clubs and wherever else we can get a booking, we’re seeing brands dream up new ways to make our new favourite shapes work wherever we want.
So what are the best ways to wear sweatpant-centric outfits moving forward? Take some notes from Missguided, who has just dropped the latest installment of their collaboration with legendary streetwear label, Sean John.

Back and refreshed for a new season in sweet summer colourways, the Courtside Edit gives a fresh varsity to spin to the styles you’ve come to expect from the collab - including joggers complete with matching hoodies - plus logo branded denim, super-wide leg trousers, and the kind of oversized jersey tops you might borrow from your fictional B‘baller boyfriend. With the sun soon to be shining, the ruched-waist longline shorts are high up the Octer wishlist - a seriously cool pairing with a structured blazer and strappy heel if you’re looking for ways to work casualwear into evenings too. However, if all you want to do right now is roll yourself up in a duvet, rest assured that we feel the same - and for that, there are oversized shirts and short co-ords in chic, glossy beige or head-to-toe layerable lilac looks in the comfiest fits and sports fabrics, perfectly suited to the chunkiest white trainers you own.
