It’s no secret by now that the entire TME team loves these Nike wide-leg sweatpants. And no wonder: they’re the holy grail of loungewear, the pinnacle of fleece, the…the…the unicorn of the stay-at-home uniform (S high-fives self), the…jewel? Of all joggers? Hmm.

In any case, you get the idea.

If interested, check them out on Kat, Julieta and Em. Laura loves them so much she did a whole post on styling them up.

So why do I continue with this particular post? If these pants have already been covered ad-nauseum? Is it dogged determination? Stubbornness? An unwillingness to let go of the time already spent?

Well…selfishly, I need help. And what good is a blog – -one that you’ve toiled away on for more than a decade — if you can’t get some darn feedback?

So please: give me some darn feedback.  

Nike Sportswear Palazzo Pants: Which Color, Which Top?

This is your job, people. After allllllll I’ve done for you (oh, you’re new here? Hi and welcome — I’m not usually this crazy) but the REST OF YOU, YOU LONGTIME READERS KEEP READING AND COMMENT YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE. 

Nike Wide-Leg Sweatpants: Which Color?

BREAKING NEWS: The sweatpants are really low in stock. However, we’ve gotten emails and DMs from readers who bought multiple colors & sizes — this was one piece everyone wanted to get right. So I suspect a ton of returns will start coming in. If not, here are a few alternates: 

 

Now…back to the issue at hand: black or gray? 

Also: these are NOT the tops in question. I’m keeping both. Focus on the sweatpants, Luke….these are not the tops you’re looking for….

Which Nike Sweatsuit To Keep?

Now we’re getting into the top situation. It’s important to note that both tops come in both colors. But I’ve ordered what I’ve ordered, so. We’re going with this:

All together now! One item of note: The gray tends to run a bit bigger. The pants are the tiiiniest bit bigger, and the hoodie is longer.

Styling Ideas For The Gray Nike Hoodie

So let’s get into it: if I’m keeping one top, it’s gotta be one that works with a bunch of other stuff in my closet. This city girl doesn’t have the glorious blogger closet space of those Utah influencers.(Full disclosure: we did turn a room in our house into a closet. But it’s a TINY room, gang — barely a room — and I share it with Mike AND my desk, so.)

Styling Ideas For the Black Nike Sweatshirt

Sooo…this one works, too. I love how this sweatshirt manages to look nonchalantly oversized, without being a disaster. It’s the curved hem, I think, and drapey shoulders. It doesn’t have that fabulous hood tho…hmm….

Soo….thoughts? I am leaning to the black because…I always lean to the black? 

Anyway, happy shopping. Good luck out there.
