They’re more versatile than you think.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
