We’ve recently discovered the virtues of tracksuit pants outside of the gym and possibly the most comfortable ballerinas on the market at no other than US retailer J.Crew. The brand has been under new creative direction, creating affordable yet luxurious shirts, pants and jewelry.
But what blew us away are their colour-block elasticated leather ballerinas that are also padded for extra comfort. We’ve fallen particularly hard for the neon toe-capped variety as it provides a more feminine and luxurious alternative to trainers , to go with the new silk tracksuit bottoms taking over jeans.
Think baggy drawstring pants and contrasting coloured stripes running down the side of the legs and creating the illusion of a thinner silhouette.
Wear them with silk camisoles and tanks in electric hues or colour-block style to travel comfortably and in style and survive the summer’s sweldering heat. Dress down with ballerinas or ankle boots or up with stiletto pumps or high-heeled sandals. In terms of accessories, only a satchel or cross body bag would do the job, as we like to keep the look free and airy.
