Trend alert: Socially acceptable tracksuit pants
Okay, we get it. The weather is cold, the rain is imminent and the last thing you want to do is get out of bed and go to work. Well, one thing we’re grateful for this winter is that it’s now socially acceptable to roll out of bed and put on some slouchy track pants. However, this tricky trend needs some forethought – unfortunately your boyfriend’s old comfy college pair won’t cut it. Instead, keep it classy with a pair of designer joggers in bold prints, different fabrics and tailored cuts. Wear them with strappy heels to dress it up, or channel that off-duty model style with some pumped up kicks and a bomber jacket.
