During this quarantine, I know a lot of people have invested in a few tracksuits to make sure they’re comfortable during zoom calls, and walks to from the fridge. But what about when we need to quickly run to the shops? Or out to help a friend, or on your daily walk, do you get changed? The answer is no. The tracksuit has gone around and come back with a bang, it’s now a style icon and can be dressed in different ways to suit the situation, and here’s how I’m wearing mine:
The tracksuit can be worn as a set or separately paired with other items. Both can look chic whether the matching top is a sweatshirt or hoodie, but if you’re in need of a change, why not pair the bottoms with a different coloured top or jumper.
If we were able to socialise I would be wearing something like this to the pub on a Sunday. Changing the top half to a thin long sleeve or cashmere jumper oozes effortlessness.
Footwear is probably the most common question I get about any outfit, and with this look I favour the chunky flat. It’s a really clean and chic look together the with the trackpant.
For days when it’s a little unsettled, I’m throwing on a pair of trainers and am favouring a more chunky style again for this look – I think you need the chunky sole to balance the look out. Go for a pair of New Balance like the Scandi babes are doing. Or if you’re after something new, I think Asics are making a big come back.
Bag wise I think it depends on the footwear. If you’ve gone for the sandal, it can be something sporty like The Row banana bag I’m using, or a big basket bag (which is also perfect for a quick food shop). If you’ve gone for trainers I would go for something a little sassier like the oversized clutch or a 90’s style shoulder bag – By Far are my favourite.
For the jacket you want that mid-lenght cut off, more of a thigh skimmer. And either in leather or suede to dress up the look. If you wanted to keep it really casual I would opt for a utility coat or shacket (skirt/jacket hybrid).
