Track pants are looking better than ever and we can thank athleisure for that. Athleisure, is just another example of fashion taking a style staple out of context by showcasing the versatility of it. When putting an outfit together, I love to ask myself questions like ‘How do I make this item look unique?’ It’s not that I want to just look different; rather I want to put an effort out there to express myself in an original way. In this case, pairing track pants with a leather jacket and booties makes the look anything but uninspired gym wear.
Activewear (especially yoga pants & sweats) used to be perceived as being worn out of laziness, which is now totally not the case. Designers are showing so many active wear pieces on the runways that have street style stars and celebrities adopting them into their looks. The track pant is one of the few luxe items that is simultaneously comfortable and cool. And I think it’s the perfect transitional piece to wear today.
If you are new to athleisure—but up for joining fashion’s obsession with it—I would definitely start with a pair of track pants. The side-striped variations are my personal favorite because the detailing adds an extra sporty feel to the look. Remember to think outside of the box with this style though, pairing it with a t-shirt and sneakers just won’t cut it. The whole point of wearing track pants outside of the gym, is to get creative–rock a pair with heels and a blouse instead!
