Trackie Loving

Anyone who has been to my house in the evening will be aware that I have a penchant for tracksuit bottoms. Until recently this was a fairly dirty secret, however, it appears that trackie bottoms (or sweat pants if you're yanky inclined) are making a bit of a stealthy comeback.

First I noticed the popularity of the Ashish skeleton tracksuit, then the Christopher Kane for Topshop collection featured some rather spunky eyeletted and mirrored ones, which led me to hope and pray that maybe my love would no longer be a filthy secret.

Alas, last week the Guardian fashion newsletter contained an article on their comeback, thus confirming my suspiousions. I put this down in part to the major resurgence of relaxed fit trousers this year, such as hareem pants, the 'relaxed' skinny and the pegleg. What ever the reasoning for it I, for one, am celebrating.

What do you say; would you wear trackies as serious daywear?

  1. I was pondering on this last night over my pack of Oreos while flicking through a stolen Vogue UK.

    The ones they mentioned were really nice, and yes I would. Rag & Bone are doing them next season with legging peeking out-really cute :)

  2. News on daily-women, 2 new posts by O&M :
    An interview to a young girl who loves Chineese & Japan style, and a photo shoot by Olivia in Leopard dress :)

    have a nice day :) x.o.x.o



Got anything to say...? Go ahead, I love a chitchat...
