Track pants are a fashion staple that have been in my wardrobe since my middle school days. I used to wear them strictly as a part of my warm-up outfits for basketball and volleyball, but as an adult dressing them up with a pair of heels or mules, or nodding to the athleisure trend by adding a favorite sneaker to the mix.

While leggings and jeans will always have a special place in my heart, track pants offer both comfort and style, and usually are not too expensive of a buy. These pants are usually identified by their stripe detailing or breakaway sides, which can make for great customizing options. Full transparency: I wore a pair on Thanksgiving last year and was able to throw down while still looking chic in family pictures.
