Ohhh, the iconic Juicy Couture tracksuit: the trend that epitomized the early 2000s! Priced at nearly $100 per-piece and in velour and terry cloth variations, this was the item that every celebrity and trend-conscious woman needed in her closet. Ten years later, however, and our once beloved sweatshirts with J zipper pulls and flared-leg sweats tucked into tall Ugg boots are the stuff of fashion nightmares. Just watch an episode from the early seasons of Keeping Up With The Kardashians if you want to see how ridiculous we all looked! At the time, however, those suits were completely on-trend and soooo comfortable. Le sigh.
While Juicy has remained relevant with the release of new fragrances, a jewelry line, adorable ad campaigns, and more feminine designs, they haven’t quite reached the level of fame and fortune originally attained by that standout garment. What do they do? Makeover!! The company has unveiled an updated version of their classic tracksuit (aka the “Juicy suit” anyone?!)–styled with the modern girl in mind.
Boxy jackets + slim pants! It’s actually pretty cute, right?! And no sign of a gigantic “JUICY” logo printed across the behind! I’m loving the straight-leg, pegged pants, especially in these neutral shades. Relaxed track pants are a major trend for 2013, and though these are a bit pricy at $88, Juicy’s quality and fit is consistently top-notch. Buy these now and wear them through spring final exams, on summer road trips with a tank and giant hat, and this fall with a v-neck, denim vest, and pointy flats. As long as the separates are actually worn separately, I think either would make a great addition to a casual wear wardrobe. Peep the collection in its entirety here.
So cuties, what do you think of Juicy’s new tracksuit? Would you wear the revamped styles? Leave a comment and let us know!
