You Can Now Officially Wear Track Pants Everywhere

They’re more versatile than you think.

By: Samantha Sutton

Don’t let that old reputation of “casual” and “athleisure” fool you: track pants are just as versatile as your favorite pair of jeans. The trick to making them work for a variety of occasions, from the office to a night out to a laid-back brunch with friends? Like most fashion-related things, it revolves around styling. See everything we’ll be pairing with this trendy piece ahead. There’s no doubt it’ll be getting some good use this season.

The Pants: Of course, not all track pants are created equal—some are baggier, some are colorful, and some are *actually* just joggers. So we based our outfits off the Adidas Firebird Track Pants, aka the OG, $65 pair that are loved by models and editors alike. 

 

Casual

If your goal is to keep things comfy but still look elevated, opt for pieces that are slightly above average: a *ruffled* tee, a *metallic* pair of sneakers, etc. Then, add an eye-catching scarf to pull the whole thing together—minus all the fuss of heavy jewels.

 

The Office

The key to making these pants pass at work? Styling them just like structured trousers. Take a page from Victoria Beckham’s book, and add a solid collared button-down with a pair of black pumps. Some statement-making drop earrings will also add a fancy touch. 

 

Night Out

You might not think that these casual bottoms could ever be “sexy,” but with the right top—as in, one with a plunging neckline—and a strappy pair of sandals, they’ll instantly transform. 

 

Brunch

The combination of a long striped top with white sneakers and large-framed glasses might feel as if you’re throwing on pajamas. But in reality? It’s the perfect mix of quirky and laid-back to give off a cool, street style vibe
