In The Inbox : What Is It About Tracksuit Pants?

Dear Can't-Take-Off-My-Tracksuit,
I love getting mail, so thanks for your thoughtful letter.
And I too am guilty of living in my track pants.
So, before anyone organises an intervention, 
it is a good idea to discuss their place in our wardrobes.

The good news for us is that these fleecy pants 
have recently made a fashionable comeback.

As you can see, it's all about the attitude.
Toughen up your look with a man style watch, serious jewellery hardware
- and don't forget the heels.
Whether you are feeling relaxed, sporty or luxe it's true :

Track pants can take you from 
the bedroom to the gym to the bar.

Pleasantly surprised?  We kinda were too.
Let's take a look at how your fleecy pants can work for you.
The Look Lite Lady

Get Your Comfy On
Need some 'you' time? Own it.
...but maybe keep this look indoors.  And enjoy.

Downtown Funk
Glam up and embrace the sporty stripes by adding metallics to the mix.
Keep the look streamlined with a smart button up and tailored jacket.
Confidence is key.

She Means Business
Grey marle in the boardroom? 
Ok, maybe not, but you can still be serious when you keep it simple.
Add black separates and stay smart.

Sporty Nice
Kicking back on the weekend + track pants = perfect match.
Embrace your inner gym rat and get out there and play!

P.S. We couldn't go without mentioning the Juicy Couture effect :
The company that was "started by two fashion-obsessed friends in 1997
(and is) best known for ascending the tracksuit to it's status as a casual luxury icon".
Although (hopefully) we have moved on from the days of 'Jenny from the block', 
we predict our love for the simple pleasure of trackie dacks 
will be around for many years to come.
