This trendy lightweight pant option is perfect for when temperatures start to heat up.
The ‘90s called and it does not want its track pants back. Believe it or not, the retro bottom is having quite the moment with celebrities like Kourtney Kardashian, Zendaya, and Bella Hadid sporting the PE-inspired trend. And who could forget Melissa McCarthy and hubby Ben Falcone attending the Vanity Fair Oscars after party earlier this year in matching Adidas tracksuits? #Couplegoals.
As spring days melt into sticky, humid scorchers, the task of finding a classy, versatile pant that doesn’t make us feel like we’re getting all sweaty down there (our skinny jeans are taking a hiatus) is of the utmost importance. Enter: the track pant—an airy, roomy option that ticks all of our comfort boxes. Plus, most are either wide-legged—allowing for total air flow—or have snaps down the sides, which makes them even more breathable.
We’ve rounded up the cutest track pants you’ll actually want to be caught dead wearing. Here are 10 super versatile picks to take you to the office, to the gym, or to happy hour cocktail-sipping.
