How to Style Track Pants

I can get behind any trend that’s comfort-centric, which is why I’m a big fan of athleisure. (To be honest, I’m trying to figure out how to get away with wearing PJs to work… haha.) When I got these knit track pants as a gift from Margaret O’Leary, I got so excited because I knew I’d be able to dress them up and wear them out everywhere.

For Seattleites, Margaret O’Leary has a store in University Village and another opening soon in Bellevue!

Here is how I style sweatpants outside of the couch or gym context:

  1. Fit – To avoid looking sloppy, I like track pants that have a slightly tapered leg with a cropped cut. The exposed ankles can give an illusion of elongated legs, even if I’m wearing flats, and heels would take it to the next level.
  2. Accessories – Adding the right accessories can elevate the look, so throw on some gold earrings, a structured bag, and either loafer mules or sleek kitten heels. I also like to add a red lip for good measure!
  3. One Item Rule – I make sure to only wear the track pants and dress up everything else. If I wore a hoodie and sneakers, then it’d be more of the athleisure trend (even though I’d make an exception for a beanie).

    This look is so cool. They are definitely best with cool accessories to make them feel less gym like. These slides are a perfect match.

    I am a huge fan of track pants because they are so comfy and chic! I love that they can be dressed up or down and they look so edgy. These ones are fantastic and like the cut of them. They look amazing with the mules! xoxo, Christine
