Real talk: the tracksuit has a very checkered past. Sure, there have been highs (Run DMC rocking their Adidas), but the lows have been, well, low. Who doesn’t look back on those Juicy Couture velour sets and cringe?
But the two-piece is staging a (gasp!) revival—and the 2016 iteration just might make up for past tracksuit transgressions. With very now prints and slimmer cuts (think more Bella Hadid and less your oversized soccer sweats from high school) they’re undeniably having a moment.
Many come in a set, but you definitely don’t have to do the head-to-toe look. In fact, from Tory Sport to Fenty Puma by Rihanna, brands are designing zip-up jackets and track pants that can stand on their own—and are chic enough to pair with heels and a blouse (when you’re not outfitting them with your favorite new sneakers, that is). And if you’re more of a traditionalist, you’ll find plenty of stripped options to choose from.
