I will be honest I had never thought that the athleisure trend will last more than a season. What once began with dad sneakers worn with well, pretty much everything, alter into bicycle shorts with blazers last season and now, not only are hoodies being worn with trousers and suits, under trench coats, but entire tracksuits are emerging as the next athleisure trend. Sometimes styled with a blazer, sometimes a camel coat, and sometimes with just a pair of combat boots. Are the tracksuits with their bulkiness and comfort, the next big thing?!? The trick, of course, is to dress it up and make it “sporty chic”.
Planning a relaxed weekend of gallery-hopping or just catching up with friends? Pair of luxe track pants with a cozy hoodie and the cult NB sneakers. Then just add a few ladylike pieces like a classic trench coat or wool camel coat and a top-handle bag to keep your off-duty look sporty chic. However, keep the track pants to daytime alone. For an athleisure take on after-dark dressing, pair classic trousers with a sporty tank top, a boxy blazer, pair of jogging sneakers and a lot of lavish accessories (Bottega Veneta’s ‘Cassette’ bag or the any Chanel bag for that matter). Slick hair and red lipstick will give any outfit a preppy feel.
Once you’ve curated your key athleisure pieces, keep them feeling fresh with street-style approved styling trick: hi/lo dressing. A classic camel coat feels like a fresh proposition when layered over a full tracksuit.

New Balance 990 is the new pair of dad sneakers that charm the fashion crowd with gray being the most popular color choice they are comfortable and endlessly wearable while brimming with personality.
For a weekend spent city exploring, pair them with simple black leggings instead of jeans, an oversized blazer for a relaxed, hi/lo look. As for the finishing touch, Bottega Veneta’s butter-soft padded Cassette bag will lend a luxe touch to your casual outfit.
