Faux leather track pants – a style ‘Do’ or ‘Don’t?’ When I first started seeing this trend, track pants felt more like ‘high-school P.E.’ than posh, until I tried them on and realized they were so comfortable! Not only are track pants still on trend, faux leather is perfect for fall because they’re warmer than the flimsy cotton and silk ones hot last spring and summer. Plus, it’s hard not to love a trouser with an elastic waistband, right?
Of course track pants and a t-shirt – in terms of style – are a close cousin to sweat pants and a Fruit of the Loom cut-off and no one wants to look like The Terry’s (for any Tim & Eric fans out there.) Here’s 5 Tips I have to instantly upgrade those casual weekend basics with a few pics from last night buzzing around Zurich…
#1 – A Must – Track pants can make me feel a bit frumpy and stumpy. Adding heels (without an ankle strap) really helps to elongate legs for a dressed-up night out for cocktails or dinner.
#2 Spice Fall Up with Color! – A bright red, violet, or even navy blue statement bag instead of black this fall will make your track pants feel more like an outfit compared to gym attire.
#3 Something New ~ Create the illusion of smaller waist tucking your top on the side. Track pants won’t exactly give anyone a J-Lo booty, so avoid pairing them with crop tops or tucking your shirt all the way in for an instant Steve Urkel effect.
#4 – Instant Feminine Accents - Statement necklaces, especially long ones always dress up a cotton Tee. I also loved the lace detail on this Zara top and I think it could be a pretty simple DIY to sew some lace trim to a T-shirt if you’re crafty like that.
#5 – Throw an Arm Apero because ‘Arm Parties‘ seem to be a bit outdated. I LOVE these bangles by my friend Vannessa’s new collection Luxuria Jewellry Boutique. The mix of 6 gold plated, rose-gold plated and silver bangles go with any watch and seem smaller than most bangles so they won’t constant slip down your hand.
