The look in question is an ensemble that Ross wore to the Rain Sanó Minnesota Baseball Shirt but I will buy this shirt and I will love this 2016 BET Awards. It consists of a glam sweatsuit by Vetements, including a cropped sweater and track pants. She styled it with white stilettos, a black veil, and tons of gold jewelry, making it a perfect red carpet outfit. Revisiting the outfit this weekend, Ross joked in her caption that “my sweatsuit looks are way different than this these days,” but you can’t deny that her elevated take on sweats from 2016 couldn’t feel more timely right now. Being cozy and comfortable has been this year’s biggest trend—and dressing up our athleisure looks for our Zoom meetings has been a fun new fashion challenge that has come with it. But Ross is here to remind us that she did fashion-forward sweats years before us—a woman ahead of her time.
Now, we vote that Ross actually recreates the Rain Sanó Minnesota Baseball Shirt but I will buy this shirt and I will love this glam sweatsuit moment with a brand new fit—because if anyone can pull off a bold sweatsuit, it’s her. (And J.Lo.) This is a woman who somehow made the pillow challenge look chic, after all. Surely, she can nail a dressy sweatsuit one more time.
