The Sporty Pants Trend That Will Rule this Spring (Working Out Not Required)

While one part of me has really missed “dressing up” in jeans, there’s another part of me that has wholeheartedly embraced all the comfortable trends that have surfaced this past year. And for the new season, designers clearly catered to the world’s desire for casual comfort with a whole host of the S/S 21 collections showcasing sporty, comfy, and casual pieces—from hoodies to athletic shorts, and our topic of today—track pants.

The sporty pants were given a fresh and modern spin on the runways with designers such as Hugo Boss pairing sleek wide-leg styles with relaxed blazers, and the likes of Miu Miu and Isabel Marant opting for side stripe track pants paired with cute cropped tops.

However, you style them the comfortable trend is here to stay this spring/summer and there are plenty of cool, retro, and chic iterations to get your hands on (working out not required!). Whether you go for wide-leg, tapered, striped, or basic, scroll below to see some of the cool track pants to shop right now and get inspired on the fresh ways to style them below.
