Look Of The Week: Stand Out In adidas Originals Tracksuits

By Glaiza Godinez

Tracksuits get a mixed fashion reaction because they either remind people of 1980s hip-hop glory or the 2000s velour sweatsuit fad. But it has actually been 50 years since adidas launched the very first tracksuit, and today the sporty look has successfully transitioned from casual wear to high fashion.

We at Sun & Sand Sports are all about what’s trending and how to wear it. Our Look of the Week is here to help with a top-to-toe outfit inspiration that is both fashionable and functional. This week, we shed new light on the classic look in these statement adidas Originals track pants, tee and sneakers for the modern man.

adidas Originals CLFN T-Shirt

The stylist’s advice for looking sharp in casual wear is to leave the loud graphic tees at home and go for a plain shirt, like the adidas Originals CLFN (California) tee. It’s hard to get it wrong in this simple, yet eye-catching top that bears the iconic 3-Stripes accent stitched on the sleeves and Trefoil logo on the chest. The raglan sleeves and 100% cotton is for comfort and mobility. Plus, the red on the navy blue colour contrast looks good in any season.

adidas Originals SST Cuffed Track Pants

The brand’s first foray into apparel was with a humble red-and-white tracksuit worn by German football star Franz Beckenbauer in 1967. By the mid-70s, tracksuits came to define sportswear due to the growing fitness craze at the time and recreational athletes (casual joggers and trekkers) embracing them. In the ‘80s, athletic street style was in full swing as New York City hip-hop groups like Run DMC and Beastie Boys popularised matching tracksuits.

The adidas Originals track pants are now street style staples with celebrities rocking them for a jet-set look to the airport and all the way to fashion spreads on magazines. The adidas Originals SST (Superstar) Cuffed Tracks are just the timeless bottoms you need. They updated the original with a slimmer look and elastic cuffs, but the 3-Stripes still run down the sides and bear the embroidered Trefoil logo on the hip.

adidas Originals Superstar Shoe

You can pair the adidas Originals track pants with any sneaker height (low, mid or high tops). But to add more personality to your look and break the dark blue colour blocking, try the crisp white adidas Originals Superstar Shoe with crimson stripes. White sneakers are a summer favourite and the low-cut design keeps it urban. Go for retro cool in this pair of full-grain leather and rubber shell toe that has changed sneaker culture forever.

Make it sporty and stylish with the new in season adidas Orignals track pants, tees and sneakers available at Sun & Sand Sports. Don’t miss out on style tips and the latest in sports trends. Subscribe to the SSS newsletter below.
