How to wear track pants – a short style guide

// by

Those who follow me regularly know, that I travel a lot. When you sit on a plane for long hours, comfortable clothes are the most important thing. I’ve been swapping jeans for track pants a lot lately and I feel beyond comfortable with it. In today’s blogpost I’m going to show you how to wear track pants on and off-duty from day to night.


Track pants – effortless and cool

Somewhere between leisurewear and athletic, track pants are great allrounders and can easily be dressed up and down. Although the athleisure look is nothing new, track pants are always a great statement. They work on and off-duty and can even be an outstanding piece for a fancy night out. I guess, they are one of the most versatile items in my wardrobe. Over the last couple of seasons, track pants have devolved from fashion faux pas to an unavoidable catwalk must-have. They are ideal for a cozy and relaxed outfit at the weekend , but also perfectly work with heels for a sophisticated business look. Check out the pictures below, to see how I styled my track pants.

My weekend look

When I don’t have appointments on a Saturday, I always like to keep things casual and easy. It’s not about looking super fancy and put together , but feeling comfortable and relaxed. To me, nothing beats a classic pair of Adidas signature track pants and a matching black sweatshirt. Sweatshirts always add a laid back vibe to any kind of outfit and are my favorite key piece for a relaxed weekend look. I’m a huge fan of clashing styles and love to mix and match. How do you like the combination of the vintage Chanel belt bag and the pool slides? The key to pulling off track pants, is choosing the right accessories. High quality designer bags or shoes add the missing amount of elegance to the sporty look.

Stroll through the city

I’ve created tow different looks that perfectly work for a nice stroll through the city or long coffee dates in the sun. We all know, that spring weather can be unpredictable. Sunshine and blue skies can quickly transform into rain. Track pants are suitable for all weather conditions and are therefore perfect for spring.

 

Denim and sneakers

I love denim jackets. They are the ultimate statement piece to round off any outfit. Whereas I normally go for an all- denim look or pair my denim jackets with skirts and dresses, I decided to give the track pants a try. At first I was concerned that it might look too bulky and oversized, but it turned out to be one of my favorite looks. The key is, to go for track pants with a nice fit ( not soggy ones) and pair them with a tight crop top or cropped sweatshirt. My new Nike x Off-White sneakers and my all-time favorite Jimmy Choo bag add the finishing touch to my look.

Track pants for the evening

As much as I like wearing sneakers and flats, I enjoy wearing heels for a fancy night out. When I wear track pants in the evening, I always try to find feminine pieces to complete the look. As I mentioned before, I really like to mix different kind of styles. High heels or stilettos are perfect to add femininity and elegance to a sporty and casual look.

Black with a pop of red

All-black is always great for an evening look. For me, sweatshirts are just as elegant as blouses and tops, when they are worn correctly. I decided to go for a black hoodie, a classic pair of black Adidas track pants and pointy red sock boots. The red heels instantly upgrade the sporty look and transform it from day to night. What do you guys think? Can I wear the look for dinner?

Crop top and heels

This is definitely one of my favorite looks for a night out. Sporty meets sexy meets elegant. The yellow track pants are the main eye-catcher in this outfit and create a sporty and fashion forward style. Adding a crop top and matching heels guarantees the right amount of femininity, you need for the perfect evening look. My pretty Jimmy Choo bag rounds off the look and perfectly fits in with the color scheme.

    Athleisure trend is superior! Love the sporty chicness! The cropped hoodie ideally matches slim track pants tucked in high heeled pointed-toe booties.
