Sarah Jessica Parker never let the pandemic rule the way she dressed. She kept wearing pumps while the rest of us resorted to Ugg slippers. But ironically enough, now that the rest of us are easing back into pre-pandemic maximalism, Parker seems to be outfit repeating, in sweatpants of all things, more than ever.

Maybe she's just tired of carrying pandemic fashion on her back, or maybe she's grown to love the pants we're afraid to wear in public. While most people worry sweatpants make them look like a college student who just rolled out of bed and onto campus 15 minutes late to class, Parker could care less. Honestly she makes sweatpants look good, like they're intentional, not lazy.

Her go-to sweatpants styling trick is tucking them into taller boots — and it definitely works. Her current footwear of choice is a mid-calf suede boot, something we've personally never thought to style with sweats, but are now convinced we need to try à la SJP.

Parker's sweatpants styling elevates casual dressing to a level we've never thought possible, and while it's not as evidently Carrie Bradshaw-esque as something like the newest Manolo Blahnik x Birkenstock collab, it still feels fabulous in all its idiosyncrasies. Next thing you know, Parker will be outfit repeating in a pair of $35 Zella sweatpants and a $810 velvet crystal-embellished Birkenstock, as only she can. And we'll be out here taking notes, of course and working up the courage to rock sweatpants as unabashedly and fabulously as she does.
