Track pants are one of those trends that I was super dubious about at first. Although the idea of wearing something that felt like pajamas, I didn’t want to walk around looking like I was wearing pajamas. But once I actually owned a few pairs, and figured out how to wear them well, I was totally sold on them. I mean, when you can look put together and be insanely comfortable at the same time, I’m so on board.

I’m sure some of you are still unsure about this trend, so I teamed up with Melissa, of I Still Love You, to show you 6 ways to wear track pants, without looking like you’re wearing pajamas!

First up, Business.

Just because these pants feel like jammies, doesn’t mean they can’t become professional for a day at the office! You’ll thank me too when you’re incredibly comfy all day long (although your boss might not if you fall asleep on the job)! Throw them on with a blazer and heels, or a structured blouse, both of which will offset the slouchiness of the pants.

Next up, Edgy.

Track pants are typically not edgy at all (and these ones definitely aren’t), but throw on a leather jacket and your outfit instantly has some edge. You could also try some strappy, edgy shoes, a spiked necklace, or a leather embellished top to add some edginess to your look!

And finally, Bohemian.

I love the laid back vibe of this look, with an unstructured feminine blouse, and some simple brown wedges. This look was inspired by the gorgeous Mara of M Loves M. You could also try a peasant style blouse that flares out at the waist, like her crocheted top, and some strappy flat sandals.

Now hop over to Melissa’s blog to check out three more ways to wear track pants, including tips for some of you pregnant mamas!
