For Fall 2009, the hippest of the hip fashionistas are stepping out in, of all things, their sweatpants.

This haute sweatpants look comes with a crazy twist of being worn with heels, or paired with a blazer. While the look seems implausible, it actually looks:good.

This style comes as quite a surprise to most fashion folks who make it a point not to leave the house in sweatpants, unless they're going to the gym.

Implications - Consumers are slaves to vanity and are more willing to buy an item if it makes them look better. Corporations may consider designing products based on how they make users look, rather than strictly for functionality reasons.
