If one is asked to pinpoint the ultimate cozy girl ‘fit during the early 2000s, the tracksuit might be the first thing that comes to mind. Commonly made of materials like cotton, terrycloth and polyester for athletes to wear on the track, the two-piece set was given a velour makeover by Juicy Couture in 2001, a design that celebrities like Paris Hilton, Beyoncé and Britney Spears helped popularize back in the day.
Fast forward to two decades later, the trend has officially made its comeback, as comfort-first fashion becomes the new norm in the midst of a pandemic. Recently, Juicy Couture has unveiled a Fall/Winter 2020 campaign full of updated velour tracksuits in a variety of colorways. Other athleisure favorites, such as Nike and adidas, have also released sporty matching sets for workouts and beyond. Still not convinced? Perhaps these celebrity outfits — from Dua Lipa‘s neon green ensemble to Megan Thee Stallion‘s pastel suit — will inspire you to give the throwback look a try.
To help you nail the nostalgic trend, we’ve gathered a list of the best tracksuits for all budgets below.
