I have a secret confession: I dream of the day when sweatpants will replace jeans as the new wear-anywhere-and-with-everything wardrobe staple.(Hey,we sawpajamas on the fall runways,right?)
I throw on sweats the second I get home from work and on weekends,I basically live in them.They're unrivaled in comfort and unlike my favorite pair of jeans,they never make me feel fat.What's not to love?And though celebs may want us to think of them as perfectly glammed up for every occasion,one look at the pages of the gossip weeklies definitely tells a different story.Hey,they've gotta take out their garbage too,right?Oh wait and…go to the movies…and the grocery store…and just about anywhere these days,really!L.A.casual has reached new heights (or is it depths?) with the invasion of celebs in sweats on just about every corner.While I totally get it--I don't know if I'd give up my ten year-old,bright orange Princeton sweatpants in exchange for fame (fame and Brad Pitt?I'd have to think about it)--I still wouldn't be caught dead outside the house in those oldies but goodies.
Do you guys agree that when it comes to such uber-casual attire,there's a fine line between comfortably chic and "what was she thinking leaving the house in that?" Where do you guys draw that line?Are sweats for the gym or the privacy of one's home only?Or are they perfectly acceptable for public viewing?Check out four ways celebs are rockin' sweats and vote on which looks you'd be willing to have your photo snapped in.

What do you think,gals: DoesNatalie Portmanget the not-too-sloppy-not-too-matchy thing just right,or do you think if you're going to bother with a cardigan,you might as well wear jeans?
