On Trial: Juicy Couture Tracksuits

JuicycoutureHaving recently rejoined the gym after an absence of… well, let’s just call it an “absence” (I get a free towel if I go thirteen times in the first month. It’s very exciting) I find myself facing a huge sartorial dilemma: what the hell to wear? In considering my options, I very briefly alighted on the idea of buying a Juicy Couture tracksuit (or at least a cheap version from Next: I’m not really sold on the idea of  paying over £100 for something that’s made of velour), but then instantly dismissed the idea: while I quite like the hoodies on their own for those casual days where you just want to wear jeans and something comfortable, the full ensemble of pants-and-hoodie is just a little too “Footballers Wives” for me. A little too “Gabby from Desperate Housewives”.

But I stumbled upon this Juicy set today at Net-a-Porter, and there are literally dozens of cheap-as-chips copies floating around the Internet, so it got me wondering: what do you think of the “velour tracksuit” look? Do you wear it?
