6 stylish ways to wear track pants this summer

Without looking like you’ve just rolled off your couch

High-waisted, baggy, form-flattering, comfortable: Track pants sound like the complete antithesis of everything that high fashion is made out to be, right? Not if Deepika Padukone has something to say about it. The actor revived interest in the humble joggers by pairing hers with a patent leather Chanel jacket to the airport.

Commonly pegged as an athleisure favourite, these no-fuss pants have earned their place in the hallowed wardrobes of the who’s who on the street style scene. Wear them with colour-blocked separates or opt for head-to-toe colour, but make sure you don’t leave them at home this season.

6 non-boring ways to style track pants


Kareena Kapoor Khan

Sweatshirts, tank tops and slouchy pants: Kareena is following the anything-goes rule for off-duty fashion, and there’s no reason you shouldn’t get in line too. Accessorise with a red lipper, a blingy handbag or mirrored shades. Depending on how much time you have on your hands, throw in a mint green manicure too, because why not?


Alia Bhatt

When in doubt, follow the got-it-flaunt-it rule. Take cues from Alia Bhatt, and make your tracks work as hard as you do by pairing them with crop tops. The combination makes for an interesting play on proportions, while also flashing just the teeniest hint of those abs you’ve been working for.


Deepika Padukone

Patent leather and track pants. Never thought you’d see those two in the same sentence, did you? Deepika Padukone tossed a coin between comfort and chic, and it landed on this winning combo. The cropped Chanel jacket keeps the paps happy, while the striped track pants help her cosy up into a ball on long flights.


Hailey Baldwin

Kneel at the altar of athleisure like Hailey Baldwin in easy separates, but maybe throw on a pair of on-trend flatforms while you’re at it.


Kendall Jenner

Track pants worn as colour-blocked separates? Where do we sign up, Kendall? These Chloé coordinates work volumes in terms of comfort, but are recommended with a pair of pointy pumps to avoid the just-fell-off-the-couch vibe. Kick those sneakers back under the bed, would ya?


Kim Kardashian

News flash: Lazy girl wardrobe essentials and high fashion styling have moved beyond the flirting stage, and are getting quite serious. As proved by Kim Kardashian who gave the head-to-toe colour trend a whirl, but worked in her high-waisted pants too while she was at it.
