I love 90's So, you may now be struggling to decide how you’re going to pull this off. But, if you keep the bottoms fairly fitted but not too tight and in one block colour, you can wear a track jacket that is slim fit and has a bit more going on. The jacket can be worn over a plain T-shirt and with a pair of white trainers. Once you’ve put all this together you would have definitely nailed the athleisure trend.
The most obvious choice when picking out a tracksuit jacket may be to pair it with, of course, some tracksuit bottoms. However, and this is a big however, make sure you don’t go too 1990’s and wear something that looks two sizes too big. Or, go in the complete opposite direction and look like you’ve just come out of reality TV and wear a tracksuit that’s two sizes too small.
The tracksuit is that sentiment dialled up, a flex that says you’re so beyond dress codes, expectations, social decorum, that coziness is all you care about when perusing your wardrobe of a morning. As Seinfeld’s George Costanza once dreamed, “I would drape myself in velvet if it were socially acceptable.” Thanks to hip hop and Alessandro Michele, two decades on, it is.
A few trends converge in the tracksuit, the big one being athleisure, which has morphed from wearing Air Max with your suit into going to work dressed like a football coach. But there’s also fashion’s current obsession with the 70s and the 90s, two decades that saw sportswear transcend, y’know, sport, and grime’s second wind, which saw kids in trackies take over the charts.
