Don't Be a Fashion Victim: Velour Tracksuits

Velour tracksuits are unequivocally out of style.

Stop wearing them.

Wearing one screams "I am from New Jersey".

They aren't even just one season from having gone out of style (in which case if you attachment issues, maybe it would be okay to wear it), but multiple years.


Please, stop wearing them. Instead, go for a Puma matching jacket and pants, like the Foundation collection, $51.99 for jacket and $34.99 for the pants on Amazon.

Or you could wear jeans and a blazer...

I mean, I don't know if velour
tracksuits were ever really acceptable in the high-end fashion world, seems to me that if a label has to put the word "couture" into its name, its just a wannabe (Juicy Couture made its name with velour tracksuits).

    Yeah the velour tracksuits are a bit out of fashion and if you keep on wearing them all the time you may see yourself on What not to Wear.

    I wear them, generally once a week, and my boyfriend calls them "the uniform". They were NEVER fashion, but are clothes that you wear on the way to an activity, in my case, screwing my boyfriend and eating snacks. :)
