Get your fix of music, movies, art, fashion, and more in these artistic articles

I made a Facebook status probably a month ago saying
how my new desired aesthetic is “model off duty”. Clearly
Juicy Couture listened to my prayers and released new
velour tracksuits. Now I can join the likes of early to mid
2000s Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian, and find the perfect
balance between tacky glamour and casual comfort. You
know I’m going to slip it on every morning with a pair of
oversized sunglasses to go grab my daily iced caramel
macchiato with soy. And if you’re in college, it’s a super cute
look to wear to that early morning class that you go back to
your room and pass out the second it’s over.
You can get these bad boys on the Juicy Couture
website if you have almost $200 to spend. Don’t fear,
though, there are more affordable options. If you hop on
over to Kohl’s, you can find a little less exciting, but much
more affordable Juicy velour tracksuits. These are the
orphaned tracksuits from Juicy’s heyday, but now that the
Juicy is trying to bring them back, there’s no reason you
can’t save a pretty penny by adopting one of these babies.
Another place to look is the sale section of the Juicy Couture
website. There are a few gorgeous options there, but they
are much pricier still than the Kohl’s options.
The Victoria and Albert Museum in London even has a
2004 Juicy tracksuit on display as part of an exhibition on
underwear and it’s relationship to fashion. Juicy Couture
velour tracksuits are a little slice of fashion history, and it’s
so exciting that we can live it all over again. Who wouldn’t
want to be a part of this resurgence of such a fashion icon?
