How to wear dressy track pants

Q. I like the relaxed style of track pants (Leith woven zip cuff track pants at Nordstrom, or Parker side stripe silk pants also at Nordstrom), but beyond a tank top, what tops are best to wear for end of summer and going into fall. After years of skinny jeans, just not sure what to wear with a looser fitting pant.

A. After wearing skinny pants for so long, a looser silhouette definitely takes some getting used to. The new “dressy” track pants are a fun trend that can be worn many different ways. Whether sleeveless, short sleeve or long sleeve, a slouchy top works best, either tucked in fully, or just a partial tuck in the front. Alternatively, you can wear a slim or boxy fit tip that hits mid-hip or above. I also love the way a cropped jacket or cardigan looks worn over a tucked in top.

For shoes, opt for an ankle boot, pointy pump or heeled sandal for a more dressed up look. Here are some track pants outfits to inspire you.
