Ways To Wear: Track Pants

Once reserved for sports enthusiasts, long-haul flights and slobathons, it seems track pants are entering their stylish era. The quintessential three-striped sports pants have become a staple in cool girls around the globe's wardrobes, with some even wearing these casual and comfy trousers to the office - no, we’re not joking. In fact, with a little help from some of our favourite fashionistas, we’re showing you why we’re on team track pants.  Via @e1isabethng                                    Via @moniqueoyagawa

Tap into two trends in one with ease and enviable style like Marleen Elisabeth. Here, she pairs her iconic blue Adidas track pants with patent black Mary Janes and white socks - an unconventional yet undeniably chic combination that even Remix Campaign & Marketing Manager Monique can’t get enough of. Finish the look with your favourite knit and slouchy shoulder bag.

If you need a sign to wear your track pants to the office, this is it. Enter Rebecca Olivia and Charlotte Olivia. These two certified cool girls prove that comfort and corporate go hand in hand with their takes on track pants and crisp white shirts. The simple swap from plain black pants to this streetwear staple instantly adds a new level of interest to 9-5 looks and still maintains a level of professionalism for the workplace. With your base covered, pair with loafers, boots or ballet flats. We love the incorporation of a headband for an extra nod to sporty style.

They said it couldn’t be done, but Elianna Arvizu proves that you can (and you should) wear track pants to dinner and drinks. By pairing your wide or straight-leg track pants with a pointed-toe boot or heel, automatically you've taken sports day to styling session 101. Add a timeless white tee and boxy black blazer and class is well and truly in session. Have fun incorporating your favourite jewellery pieces to add a feminine edge and emphasise that evening elevation.

Everyone's favourite Mancunian fashionista, Megan Ellaby, once again serves as our source of inspiration for cool-girl track pant looks. Here, she styles her coveted Adidas X Wales Bonner chocolate brown and blue track pants with a long wool coat, matching Adidas sneakers and classic shades for winter dressing done rightWe’re eyeing up this Wool Longline Coat from Seed (currently on sale!) and picture it paired with Birkenstock Boston Clogs and our fave track pants - chef’s kiss!

If you’re keen to start mixing patterns within your looks, stripes are a great place to begin. The formula is super simple - one big thick stripe, one thin stripe. Like the inspiration above, she’s paired her track pants (where the stripes are thicker) with a striped shirt (where the stripes are a little thinner) which creates a match made in playful pattern heaven. It’s not overly busy nor too much to focus on and we love the intentional undone cuff buttons, creating more dimension and interest to the look.

For those of you planning fits for the European summer holidays (we’re not jealous, honest), take a leaf out of Emili Sindlev’s style guide and tuck a crisp white tee into your track pants. This simple styling hack creates an elongated silhouette and makes the look feel smarter and more put together. Accessorise with a silk bandana, under-arm bag and pointed pumps for a relaxed Riviera-approved dinner look.
