SS 16: Sweatsuit or Tracksuit Trend?

April 13, 2016

Think back to 2006- 2008 where we all dawned tacky  cool velour sweatsuits in rainbow colors. Juicy sweatsuits were some type of symbolism back then and I am actually kinda proud to say I never  owned one, mostly because I owned more Nike and Adidas sweatpants than real clothes and my parents refused to buy me the trendy suit. In hindsight I dodged a bullet.

But now we  can all relive our childhood dreams with the comeback of the tracksuit trend!

So, last year I outlined all of the Comeback Fashion Trends that you should dig out of your closet for summer?! Well here is another great comeback trend for Spring Summer 2016.

I can’t say I am not happy to wear the sweatpants / tracksuit trend and the best part is others will think it is cool but to be honest… I always wear sweats, well they have been mostly replaced by leggings but you get the idea. You know when it is that time of the month (in my case Monday through Friday since I only wear clothes on the weekend JK). Oh, and I really don’t like leggings and heels look!

Stylish tracksuits were on every runway for SS 16 from Chloe and Gucci to Burberry and in the audience you couldn’t miss front row fashionistas in sweats and heels.


I took this look for a try pairing two ways.

One with Sweatpants Bottom– Sweatpants have a thicker appearance and likely to taper at the ankle. Usually made of sweatshirt fleece.

One with Tracksuit Bottom– Tracksuit bottoms have the sheen to them and usually stripes on the side and bootcut or bell bottoms. Usually made of polyester blends.

So the best part of this look is that both of these pants were too small for my husband so I inherited them! Hands down Nothing is better than hand-me downs.

And I genuinely thought this was a look that the hubby wouldn’t be into but this is one that is on the top of his list so…Here are a few tips on WHAT NOT TO DO and you tell me what do you think? Trackpants? Sweat pants? None?

    This trend is growing on me. I only recently got my first pair of sweatpants (I was always more of a leggings girl) but I have to say they really are the comfiest and I like how they look with leather jackets.

    I’m definitely into the trend! I really love how you kept the outfits neutral too. I mean, I love the trend in color as well (model Vanessa Moody looks stunning in the red plunge-neck combo) but I think black and white is nice when you’re not positive how you feel about the trend yet.

    You’re seriously rocking it though! I agree with your hubby– you are gorgeous in this look! (And aren’t husband hand-me-downs the best?!) I recently inherited an Adidas beanie and plain black Ralph Lauren tee. SCORE 🙂

    Oh, I remember those velour tracksuits! Never quite got their appeal because they looked so tacky. I do like the newer athleisure wear that’s popular nowadays.
