While our beloved sweatsuits are still very much a thing and will probably reign supreme in the casualwear-but-make-it-cool category for quite a while, I can’t be the only one who, at times, needs an alternative.  Aside from the basic desire to occasionally switch it up, sweatsuits also lack one essential detail that makes wearing long sleeves and long pants on summer’s hottest days a degree more bearable. Of course, I’m talking about zippers.

It sounds minimal, but being able to take your top layer on and off with ease does wonders for your comfort. Plus, tracksuits have a tendency to be constructed from lighter materials in the first place. In short, there’s no harm in adding one to your rotation, especially considering how long they’ve been around and the fact that they’re still relevant. So now that I’ve sold you—I think?—just keep scrolling to see and shop my favorite sets out there right now.

For those who, like me, are craving all things tie-dye right now.

I love this lightweight material and how the jacket is cropped.

This pop of blue and summer-appropriate shorts have me sold.

Another classic brand you can trust to make a good track suit.

The perfect pale shade of pink.

Of course an Alexander Wang tracksuit would look this cool.

You'll always feel put-together in this simple black set.

I loved this outfit so much I had to show you the beige, too.
