track pants

If you thought your favourite track pants were just for goblin mode, think again. Here’s how to style track pants from work looks to dinner dates and more.

Fashion editors have long loved to elevate the humble track pant, pairing them with boxy blazers, silky camis and even heels. We love the look for its laissez-faire approach and, what with our overrunning hangovers from lockdown, we’ve accumulated quite the collection of trackies.

For evening, the key is to keep it simple and make the track pant the focus of the look. Case in point, Palm Angel’s comfy-meets-cool violet pair with the sporty-inspired go-fast stripe can be dressed up with a classic grey knit and oversized bomber, and finished off with a dressier point-toe ankle boot – arguably one of the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe.

For cosier days, we love a matching tracksuit and sneakers paired with a smarter trench or oversized blazer. Add layers (and warmth) with a chunky blanket scarf and knitted beanie.

Elevate two key athleisure pieces - the oversized bomber and sporty track pant - with smarter wardrobe heroes like some white pointed boots and a soft cashmere knit. Yoyo Cao nails the look perfectly with these colour popping Palm Angels sweats.

Lean in to your cosy weekend vibe with a matching trackie and layer it up with an oversized quilted jacket. The Frankie Shop OG still has our heart - as seen here on Instagram's Jessica Skye - but there are plenty of affordable options on the high street too.

A classic trench can make even a tracksuit chic. Keep the rest of the look simple in classic black and always size up in the mac if it's not already oversized.
