Weekend Shopping: The Tracksuit Trend WitWeekend Shopping: The Tracksuit Trend With Exclusive Styling Ideas From Fellow Adi-Fan, Alexis Knoxh Exclusive Styling Ideas From Fellow Adi-fan, Alexis Knox
This weekend I'm tracksuit shopping - old school Adidas tracksuit shopping, to be specific. I'm going all out for the classic three-stripe, totally man-made matching numbers that made such a lasting impression on me when the likes of Run DMC popularised them in the mid-1980s and have been sneaking into my wardrobe ever since.
Despite the sports luxe trend's focus on easy to wear leisure pieces in beautiful but generally wholly unsuitable fabrics - leather, silk, satin etc - the humble jersey sweatshirt remains a go-to, reliable unisex basic.
As the Cliff classic reminds us, it's the season for giving, not for receiving - but borrowing's ok, right? I'm forever pinching my other half's sweats for Sofa Sundays and general weekend mooching so here are a few of my current favourites from Acne, Wood Wood and Johnny Cupcakes which appear to have be designed with sharing in mind.
