Tracksuits: The New Streetwear Chic

Early 2000s was the era of tracksuits with celeb stars like Paris Hilton and Kimora Lee Simmons seen rocking the fashion trend. The style has officially made a comeback as athleisure-wear with fashionistas wearing sweatpants and tracksuits at many occasions making it the new streetwear chic. Personally if I could, I would totally be wearing a pair joggers or tracksuit pants everyday! They are the ultimate answer to comfortability.

My current favourite tracksuit that I’ll probably be seen in this entire winter season is from Mr. Price. I was particularly drawn to this tracksuit by its colour and wide arm design on the tracksuit top. The tracksuit is from the Project collection that was recently launched by Mr. Price and it features a collection of fun, sporty and casual items.

The key to styling a tracksuit or a pair of joggers is to make sure you don’t look like you’re about head to the gym. Try dress up your outfit with a pair of sexy shoes or by adding a timeless biker jacket on top.

Go biker or denim blue –Β Here you can go for denim or faux leather jacket both styles can make your overall outfit look exceptionally stylish. An oversized denim jacket over a complete tracksuit is a fun and sporty look to do, making it the perfect off-duty outfit.

Style it up or down with shoes – A pair of pointy stiletto shoes can change the entire look of your outfit from chic sporty to effortlessly elegant without you having to try too hard. Then again, you can’t also go wrong with a pair of sneakers for a more casual, laid-back style. Sometimes a pair of loafers can work amazingly with a pair of joggers giving some versatility to your look.

Be playful with the accessories – When styling your tracksuit outfit be sure that the accessories are not too OTT. Keep them minimal, or let one accessory be a bold statement which can either be a colour blocking clutch bag, a pair detailed earrings or fancy necklace.
