Kim Kardashian West Wore Heels With Sweatpants & It’s So Confusing

My sweatpants are saved solely for exam season, usually paired hair that hasn’t been washed in a few days, no makeup and the first pair of sneakers I could find on my way out of the door. Sweatpants are made for comfort, not fashion, which seems to be an unwritten rule in college. Trust me—no one is wearing their sweats from their high school sports team to attract a date for formal.

Kim Kardashian West proved with her latest outfit that sweatpants can be fashionable, and aren’t always so comfortable. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star stepped out Tuesday in sweatpants and heeled booties—which might be one of the most confusing outfits I’ve ever seen. KKW’s sweats look so comfortable, I just want to curl up on the couch and watch Netflix in them, while her heels make my feet ache just by looking at them.

Kim dressed head-to-toe in Kanye West’s fashion line, including her pendant necklace that retails for a staggering $10,010. In a recent interview with Vogue, Kim divulged that she would be changing up her go-to summer look, saying “I’m trying to be a step up from where I wore sneakers and sweats all the time.” With the help of her hubby, Kim was able to keep half of her promises, ditching the sneakers, but keeping the sweats. All in the name of fashion, amirite?
