Chic Sweats Are On The Fashion Fast Track

May 24, 2012 9:00 am

Maybe it’s the upcoming Summer Olympic Games—the opening ceremony is July 27 in London—but track pants have really taken off. No, not the ones with logos written across the bum or those stretched-out old standbys you wear on the couch at home. We’re talking about tailored sweats that simply need a pair of heels to go from day to night. At Bottega Veneta’s recent Resort presentation, Tomas Maier showed color-blocked tracksuits as weekend wear, while Neil Barrett and Chloé’s Clare Waight Keller featured tapered versions with elastic at the ankles for Fall. Style.com’s own Marina Larroude was snapped test-driving a pair during Milan fashion week. Her take on the comfy-chic trend? “I love how you can dress them up with a silk shirt and dress them down with a tank or sneakers.”
