In July 2019, during an episode of Vogue’s ‘Go Ask Anna’ video series, Anna Wintour was asked whether she ever wears sweatpants, to which she responded with a hard ‘no.’
However, a recent photo on Instagram, posted by Vogue, has suggested otherwise.
Spotted: Anna Wintour donning a a pair of red sweatpants in her home-office environment — and it wins WFH look-of-the-moment, if you ask me. She paired her side-striped sweats with a fine-knit jersey and of course, her signature dark shades.
Anna’s choice of trousers have had her die-hard fans (even me) shook.
Well, the proof is in the pants, people.

The IG image, posted by Vogue was captioned:
”’We need to talk frankly and openly about what fashion is going through, but just as importantly, we need to start imagining what comes next. Please join us.” Anna Wintour shares how #VogueGlobalConversations, a four-day event on Zoom that starts tomorrow, came to be, as well as what she’s most looking forward to about it. Tap the link in our bio to read her full letter and to register to attend. ‘
Anna touches on the fact that fashion is indeed in the process of a major-transition phase (and a positive one at that), and invites her readers to join in and attend their #VogueGlobalConversations Zoom event. TBH, if seeing Anna Wintour (out of all people) wearing sweatpants is not a major indicator that the fashion world, as we know it, is moving in a very different direction, then we don’t know what is!
My opinion? I love seeing someone of such high-style status showing us how she can also be comfy at home. Kind of like the rest of us wearing PJs-all-day. Because, let’s be honest, although dressing up can give us all of those trend-setter-be-better feelings – loungewear, sleepwear, ‘WFH’ wear – is what we’re living for right now, and it’s somewhat comforting to know that The Devil Wears Sweatpants, too.
Thanks for the stamp of approval, An (now that we’re getting all ‘comfy’ with each other and all).
