The Evolution Of Katy Perry’s Solid Sweatsuits

Sure, you may know Katy Perry for her cutesy onstage ensembles and show-stopping red carpet looks, but have you ever peeped her style off-duty? Over the years we couldn’t help but notice that Katy has stayed true to one particularly comfy staple in her wardrobe—the sweatsuit. And, guys, we’re not talking about any ol’ sweatpants and sweatshirt here, we’re talking about one, solid matching hoodie and sweater combo that REALLY makes a statement. Throughout time, though, we’ve noticed her monochromatic sweatsuits had a fashion evolution in themselves—she’s transitioned from the standard Juicy Couture twosie to straight-up cozy couture (think: Chanel), and we need to discuss it.

Back in 2009, KP was spotted arriving at the Barbados airport in a classic chocolate brown, terry cloth Juicy Couture sweatsuit ensemble. She paired it with a gray tee, cherry rhinestone necklace, slouchy striped beanie, aviator sunglasses, black ballet flats and a studded brown hobo bag. Later in the same year, she wore another Juicy ensemble—this time in bright pink. (Bold move, Katy.) She finished this loungewear look with a snakeskin print tank, flip-flops, an oversized backpack and super dark sunnies. Fast forward to 2012, and we’ll see that Katy has kicked-up her loungewear style just a notch. She wore a head-to-toe metallic gray Chanel hoodie and sweats ensemble, which, yes, included matching slip-on shoes. #jeals Finally, we spot her arriving at the L.A. airport last week in her finest sweatsuit ensemble yet! She sported a striped purple hoodie with skinny pants and black flats. This look is by far our favorite because she looks camera-ready yet comfy, and, um, we’re gonna need to buy this for ourselves ASAP. But tell us, which one of Katy’s comfy outfits do you like best?
