A Handsome Way to Style Adidas Track Pants
Week 3, Day 16 of No Jeans January
Are you ready for Style Girlfriend’s No Jeans January challenge? Good. Us too. All month we’ll be throwing down the gauntlet: 31 days, no jeans, game on. Each week, we’ll focus on a jeans-free alternative and share daily outfit inspiration.
Once reserved for actual physical activity like say, running or vigorous training, track pants have made their way as a hip-hop mainstay and leader of forever-cool casual wear.
Let’s take a brisk jog down memory lane.
Before “athleisure” was even a blip on any fashion radar, the late 60s gifted us the Adidas tracksuit that went on to outfit actual athletes for…well, the indiscernible future (which is a very great thing). Enter the 1980s and Run-DMC catapulting the tracksuit into an icon. An icon, I say! From the 90s through the early aughts we’ve seen these striped MVPs on every celebrity from Missy Elliot to Ben Stiller in The Royal Tenenbaums. (Talk about a pair of pants that has the range).
Which brings us to present day. A present day, where track pants have made their way into nearly everyone’s wardrobe – and for good reason. Dressing these up – by activewear standards – is as simple as elevated athletic shoes, an interesting shirt, and simple (hopefully bright) outerwear.
Today’s the day to style Adidas track pants:
SG Says: A modern tapered cut for the track pants and pops of color on top keep this look stylish even after you leave the gym.
