Racing stripe track pants might sound like athletic wear, but this season, they’re strictly fashion girl items. These trendy pants aren’t meant for running the track or lifting weights. In fact, the only sweat you’ll break in these is maybe from running errands. 

The racing stripe track pants trend can either be showcased in a wide leg pant, a crop (which we’ll be featuring today), or even a track pant with a slit down the leg held together or undone by snaps.

This trend has been spotted on all of the major celebrities, even a few Kardashians come to mind. It has also been seen on the runway. In Rhianna’s Fenty x Puma line in particular, one of the standout pieces of the collection was this tear-away track pant.

Ready to try this trend? Here are two ways to style racing stripe track pants.

How to Style Racing Stripe Track Pants for Class

To take on a day full of classes we’re going to embrace the track pant’s athleisure roots by pairing it with an Adidas tee. 

The focal point of our outfit, the pant, is a more fitted take on the trend than the examples above, and it looks a bit more polished than the other varieties. These pants from New York & Company allow for so much range in creating looks. 

If you don’t want to jump completely on the athleisure bandwagon you can polish the outfit up by switching out the sneakers for a pair of flats and our Adidas T-shirt for a blouse. If athleisure is your thing, our bag brings enough structure to this look — the hardware on the bag alone takes our school outfit a step further and polishes up the overall look. 

How to Style Racing Stripe Track Pants for a Night Out

I love the idea of cropped track pants for a night out. It’s an unexpected, trendy choice that’s sure to turn heads. Paired with a black crop top, this look screams sleek. These Vince Camuto heels from Nordstrom, along with a red lip, take it to the next level of glam. 

Don’t forget your clutch: We need it to store all your beauty touch-up supplies throughout the night! Be sure to throw in your red lipstick so you can fix up your lips as needed.
