I mean, did anyone actually predicted that side-striped track pants would be considered stylish some day? Gotta love the unpredictability in fashion! But in all seriousness, I'm sure that without the undeniable existence of conformism in fashion, the track pants would be a trend that is unanimously hated on.
Not unlike mom jeans, which we ughed yearsss ago, yet now suddenly it's on every major fashion "It" person at fashion week, amirighttt?
The fact that I genuinely love these "track pants" surprised myself; I bought it thinking it was something to throw on when I need to be out of the house in a hurry, but I'm definitely rethinking its potential. My favourite detail about it is the vertical line at the front of each leg which lends a hint of formality, and somehow brings what would've otherwise been a regular track pants to next-level!
I paired this blue side-striped pair with my Adidas Tokyo tee and grunge-y ripped denim jacket, but soften the whole look by finishing with my favourite slingback flats and the fluffy chain bag—which is, by the way, one of my best purchases from Tokyo.
I can see how the track pants trend might be a love-it-or-hate-it kind of thing, though, but how about you? Are you into this trend as well?
