Remember the days when sweatpants/trackspants were solely for working out, or days when being a couch potato was all you could muster? It wasn’t all that long ago when we wore Juicy (even written on are butt) sweatsuits. Yikes! A few seasons ago all that changed when designers made sweat/track pants cool by altering a few key details — a slimmed down leg, affixed a ribbed band at the bottom, lowered the waist and added a pocket or two.
These days sweat/track pants can be part of an urban chic look when worn with sleek knits, button downs, fur vests, waist coasts or wrapped in belted boyfriend blazers (a la Isabel Marant). While pairing with sneakers, especially slip-ons, looks right they also look spot on with oxfords, heels, boots or chunky heeled sandals.
I live in mine. So much so I had to indulge in a few more pairs. I’m even thinking about adding the delicious cashmere pair by J Crew (below). I can’t think of a better way to look modern and fresh while being ultra comfortable.
