I think the fact that track pants are a thing now is something to rejoice. I mean, an elastic waistline with a drawstring, pockets, and elastic ankle cuffs – what’s not to love about these comfy pants? I am all about sports pants and track pants, so much so, I bought two pairs in two weeks.
First thing to keep in mind, if you’re purchasing track pants, buy them in your correct size. Don’t size up or down. The manufacturers know what they’re doing. These are not the sports pants of the 20th Century. Today’s track pants will not sag at your butt or add girth to your thighs.
Next, shop for track pants that have something special about them, such as a trendy print or sophisticated accent. Don’t shop for sloppy sports pants. Look for track pants that come off refined, polished and chic.
Lastly, yes, you CAN wear your track pants to the office. Just keep the top fitted and feminine. If you select a top that drapes, just choose one that glides elegantly against your curves.
Whatever you do, don’t wear a bulky top with your sports pants. And, always go with a classic pump shoe. Doing so will make your outfit appear professional and mature, so you won’t get any emails from HR.
Here are the track pants I just shopped. If you want some of your own, just click the picture to purchase them.
