HOW TO MAKE TRACKIES LOOK LUXE
Honestly, whether you’re favourite set is from the high street or a fancy designer, you can make trackies look luxe by wearing them like you would wear any other look you want to feel good in. Add earrings, layer on a couple necklaces, and style with your coolest sandals, trainers or boots.
Pay attention to the fit and the fabric – and by fit I don’t mean what’s most flattering. Instead go for whatever style is the most ‘you’. Some prefer slim cuts, some prefer extra baggy. Another tip is to roll up the hem-line, especially if you’re petite or want to flash some ankle. Cotton or cotton blend will always feel more luxe, and almost every tracksuit I have looks it’s best when it’s not washed every minute (which is no mean feat when you’re always wearing it come meal time).
Another way to make a tracksuit feel luxe is to size up. I’ll usually opt for my usual size or one up in the pants (as I like my comfy clothes baggy). But I’ll always size up in tees, crew necks and hoodies. As if you’ve just borrowed it from your boyfriend.

MIX AND MATCH
Like everything in your wardrobe, you want to get maximum wear out of what you own. So if you buy a matching set (or just a crew neck or solo trackpants) don’t think it’s relegated to wearing at home with other comfort wear.
Style at home trackies with your favourite knit or cool tank, and it’s easily a look worthy of leaving the house in. Basically, think of all those tops you would usually pair with jeans? Instead just pull it on with trackpants. It’s casual-cool, but extra comfy.
