When I first started seeing track pants – also known as joggers – in stores, my mind went straight to Sporty Spice. For those of you that spent most of your teen years listening and watching the Spice Girls, you know exactly who I am talking about – Sporty Spice, or Melanie Chisholm. She was hip, athletic, and wowed us with her trendy tear-away track pants. Looking back on her now, as a 37 year old, what is most appealing about her style is that she looks comfortable! So, you can imagine my silent fist pump when I started seeing an updated style of her patented pants on the racks. These easy, comfy, stylish bottoms are back and they are better than ever.
Snag This Look
My immediate suggestion for all you ladies out there that are struggling with how to look good in a hurry is to replace your over-worn black yoga pants with a pair or two of track pants. If you live in a cooler part of the country, try finding them in a heavier fabric, perhaps even a cozy cashmere. They can be paired with a rain boot or a cool everyday sneaker. If you are still fighting the heat in December, try them in a silk blend and pair them with a flat statement sandal or open back loafer. Regardless of your weather limitations, the beauty of them is that they can be dressed up or dressed down. Got a date night coming up? Try them with a beautiful turtleneck and a pointed toe pump or a blousy bodysuit with a color coordinating high-heeled sandal.

Whether you are rifling through black Friday sales today or browsing the web on Cyber Monday, I urge you to try a pair. Your look will go from “I had no time to get ready this morning” to “I am relaxed and on trend.” They’ve come a long way since Sporty Spice and they are sure to “spice up your life” … xx
