Seriously, I am not sure exactly when it became acceptable to wear your track pants out in public, but honestly, I’m not even mad about it! Even though, trust me, this is one fashion trend I NEVER thought I would get behind. I mean, I didn’t even own a pair of track pants until I got this pair!
I am actually loving that comfy fashion (sneakers, oversized tees, track pants) are having a fashion moment. For years I would buy the most uncomfortable clothes and shoes (because… fashurrrrnnn!) and then have to suffer through wearing them. Which as you can imagine, ultimately led me to only wear them a handful of times before they were banished to the ‘cute but impractical’ section of my closet.
Finally, I realised that fashion didn’t have to be ridiculously uncomfortable (well, most of the time anyway!) and started thinking about the wearability of each item before I purchased it. Genius, huh?
Enter the track pant trend: I wore these track pants out for coffee the other day and I have not looked back since. There is a fine line with this trend though, you don’t want to look like you left the house without taking off your around-the-house-only-comfy-tracky-dacks!! The trick is to go for a more fitted style, or maybe even a slightly cropped pair. Then pair it back with a denim jacket and sneakers for a casual cool look!
What do you think? Will you be rocking your track pants out and about?
