Rebecca, Colgate University: “While I cringe thinking of my awkward middle school days of sporting braces, UGGs and, of course, that matching tracksuit, I can only wish I would have known how to style that all-velour outfit like I can now. Juicy has totally reinvented the Modern Track in a way I never knew was possible. I had fun mixing and matching different materials against the navy track pants like my cargo anorak jacket and cotton graphic tee. Fit with flats and a high ponytail, it’s a cute and relaxed look perfect for class or a girls’ day out.”
Rani, Florida State University: ” “I remember the Juicy Couture tracksuits being so major in my middle and high school days. Now, with the new and more contemporary fit of the Modern Track, they’re bound to be a closet staple. I love it because I can easily go from a casual to a refined look with it. I kept it minimal in the navy relaxed top by pairing it with a simple white skirt and bright chartreuse heels. It’s so versatile and classic; my two favorite things when it comes to fashion finds.”
Carolyn, New York University: “In the past, I’ve shied away from Juicy’s velour tracksuit because its fitted and matchy-matchy feel made me think that I couldn’t play with different looks or incorporate my personal style. My mentality has changed with the new Modern Tract; which includes the relaxed top I’m wearing with a short floral dress and black booties. I wanted to mix sporty and feminine while showing how the relaxed top is great for throwing over spring dresses.”
Caitlyn, Temple University: “Usually when I think back to a velour track pant I think of middle school girls’ fashion, famous rappers or the ladies on The Jersey Shore cast. It was not until just recently I realized that the Juicy Couture Modern Track is a timeless piece that can be chic and versatile. I gave the Juicy Couture slim velour crop pant some revamping with a chic twist. I decided to wear them high at the waist-paired with a simple, white, cotton T-shirt. I threw on a navy, cream and white printed blazer with gold embellishments to achieve a professional yet comfortable look. Lastly, to bring the pant from sporty to chic, I added a slim gold belt, a long gold and cream twisted chain necklace and gray booties to pull the entire ensemble together.”
Allison, Texas State University: “With the utterance of the phrase ‘tracksuit’ I am brought back to the days when bubblegum pink velour was the object of my affections and possibly my greatest pipe dream. As the Modern Track has been reinvigorated and as I have undergone many fashion transformations myself (so long bubblegum pink!), styling was a cinch. I layered the velour sweatshirt with a printed button-down to add some Parisian flair and topped it off with a classic pair of leather shorts and cut-out boots. With such a great fit and a brilliant color, the styling possibilities of this Juicy sweatshirt are endless!”
Alinnette, University of Central Florida: “Juicy Couture always makes me think of the ultimate girly girl, always stylish and versatile. I owned every sparkly tee, charmed ballet flats and glittery track jackets. Now that I’m older, I definitely appreciate their more classic, simple pieces for an elegantly comfortable look. I wore their relaxed top with a vintage pleated skirt in a lighter color. Its intricate pattern mixed with the deep royal blue couldn’t be any more elegant. And of course, what’s a Juicy girl without accessories? I accessorized with a printed scarf bow, chunky heels and a shimmery Juicy envelope bag. Their new Modern Track Collection definitely combines comfort and high fashion into staple pieces every Fashionista should own.”
Lauren, University of New Mexico: “I decided to stick with a sporty casual look for my track pants. I paired them with an oversized men’s burnt out shirt and some oxford shoes. I kept the look feminine by adding a bright lipstick. I never thought I would find myself wearing a piece of the Juicy tracksuit, but I fell in love with the Modern Track pants! They are extremely comfy and versatile.”
Chelsea, University of San Fransisco: “For me, Juicy Couture tracksuits have always been synonymous with Orange County moms with multiple velour sets in every color. I’ve never been a fan of wide legged sweat pants, mainly cause they don’t flatter my small frame and just make me look shorter. That being said, I was so excited to finally have a chance to style the crop velour Modern Track pant. They’re luxuriously soft and a regal, deep navy hue adorned with gold details. I styled them casually with a white knit tank top and cozy beige sweater with a pop of bright pink, and then added some dimension with a geometric necklace. They pair perfectly with ballet flats and can be dressed up enough to be worn outside your lazy Sundays. For ladies with shorter legs, the band is small enough to fold over for the perfect crop length.”
Alicia, University of Texas Pan-America: “I decided to use my relaxed navy top with some faded denim shorts and a cool pair of high-heeled sneaker. In order to incorporate my personal style, I added a faux snake cap and a long necklace as accessories. I really like this top because it’s fresh and sporty. Also, I find it very wearable and comfortable to use and mix with my casual clothing.”
Jennifer, Virginia Commonwealth University: “I’m not really a ‘dress chill, yoga pant, relaxed fit’ kind of Fashionista. When I first saw the Juicy Couture Modern Track slim crop pants, I thought it was going to be a challenge to style—but it wasn’t. I styled the pants just like I would anything else in my wardrobe. I paired it with a white button up. Then I added my favorite blazer and my best cheetah print wedge heel shoes; along with some gold accessories to accent. I was very impressed on how comfortable the pants were and glad to discover a new way to dress down my dress up clothes while still looking like myself.”
