Once decreed as a WFH treat, this season loungewear will be seen everywhere but the sofa. Recently styled by Alexa Chung, the model and presenter elevated her humble Adidas track pants with some clever styling tricks. Wearing her burgundy trousers with a black kitten heel, Chung defied the boundaries of the casual pant. Smartening up the casual silhouette, she finished her trousers with a cotton button-down and a long black tailored coat. Chung’s outfit-elevating tactics juxtaposed the nature of the casual trouser for a fashion-forward take on comfort dressing, but she’s not the only one who is turning the track pants trend on its head this year. 

Although controversial—everyone I know has an opinion on this trouser trend and often leads to debate amongst fashion editors—track pants are set to be huge this season, having been spotted up and down the runways during the spring/summer showcases. At Celine, models were styled in wide-leg track pants and leather jackets, tapping in to one growing 2024 trend and another enduring one, for a seasonal look that balances the timeless with the trending. Unlike previous seasons, 2024’s best track pants come in a wide-leg cut. Styling well with a wider array of shoes, wide-leg track pants look equally great with a mary jane or loafer as they do with a classic trainer. 

This elevated take on athleisure offers flexibility in styling options. No-longer bound to their matching sets, this seasons track pants look chicest when styled with a range of tops or jackets. For an Alexa-inspired take, wear your wide-leg track pants with a neat white t-shirt or button down shirt and dress up with kitten heels, loafers or ballet flats. Naturally, during the winter months there is a time and a place for all-out comfort styling, and at these times the wide-leg track pants truly come into their own. For a comfortable outfit you’ll call upon time and time again, style your long-line track pants with an oversized hoodie and classic white trainers.

If January calls for one thing, it’s comfort. With long nights, cold evenings and blustery forecasts, there’s better time of the year to indulge in some luxurious loungewear. Give in this January and shop the comfortable trouser trend that fashion people are endorsing this season.
