Track Pants Trend
If there is one thing I love to do, its dressing up. Speaking of dressing up, The Met Gal is tonight. Who is tuning in? I will be live on instagram, sharing my favorite dresses form the night so be sure to stay tuned! I don’t get to dress up very often as my life as a freelancer and a mom keeps me writing in my home office, and prepping meals in the kitchen for the family. When it comes down to it, athleisure, a trend I poo-pooed for a very long time, has reached new heights. In fact, it is now the cool girls who leave their homes in track pants, leggings, sweatshirts, and sneakers.
After ruling the runway for the past few seasons, not to mention most of the 1980s, these gym staples have made their way into our everyday wardrobes much to everyone’s excitement. Because, let’s be honest. As much as I love dressing up, I really love my chill clothes. Which brings me back to track pants. Equal parts comfortable and stylish, the trousers can fit in at the office with a little skillful styling. The track pants trend is here to stay and I am not mad about it.
How to Style the Track Pants Trend
Track pants tap two of the season’s biggest trends – sport and street-inspired separates. The trick here is how to make them chic. I paired these red and pink track pants with crisp white booties, a fitted t-shirt, and a denim jacket. To go for a more polished office look, pair the track pants with a fitted top or opt for a lightweight bomber jacket.
