Back in 2012, the track pant re-emerged on the runways in a brand-new, chicer-than-ever way (no offense to its '90s, TLC heyday). It's been a full year, and we're just as obsessed with the athletic-meets-sophisticated style than ever. Ahead, check out three perfect ways to wear them.
It's the weekend, and you're looking to keep it low-key — but you don't want to wear your pajamas for two days straight. Pair a retro jean jacket, the perfect, striped T-shirt, and motorcycle boots with your track pants. For a little extra flavor, this Boots No7 lipstick is pure magic.
