Sporty elegant style? Who knows what this even is? I know! And I’m revealing this mystery to you too. Also, sharing how to bring a touch of elegance to your casual street style. And yes, we are slightly trying to pull off the hottest monochrome fashion trend of the moment too. So here it is, how to feel elegant while wearing white track pants with sneakers. And what the hell is sporty elegant style?
There is one thing we must discuss before we head on how to add a touch of elegance to your sporty outfit. Or should I rather say how to look casual in your princess double breasted coat? I guess we should rather stick to the second option after all. You know why. I mean I don’t want my French girl friends to roll with their eyes, merely by suggesting a girl could bring a touch of elegance to her gym outfit.
Not to say anything else, we all know sporty outfits are for the gym. And track pants with the sneakers on are not for the streets. Still, you know, sometimes you just want to wear your track pants with the sneakers. And not exactly for sweating.
What so ever, as said before, we need to discuss something else, before I share my tips on how to pull off the sneaker track pants trend, without being judged by French fashionistas.
WHAT DOES SPORTY ELEGANT STYLE EVEN MEAN
You wouldn’t believe how many people define their style as sporty elegant in Slovenia. No idea what I’m writing about? You better have none this time. If you don’t know what is sporty elegant style this can only mean one thing. And no, not that you missed a fashionable style 2 million people talk about. But that you are a fashion gal. Because you know what? There is no such thing as sporty elegant style. I repeat sporty elegant style doesn’t exist.
There are just these two outfits, the sort of sporty outfit and the something like an elegant outfit, that make you feel different than they should. You know what I mean? When you feel sophisticated even though wearing track pants with sneakers. Or on the opposite when you feel sporty while wearing something rather sophisticated. Although truth to be told, that sophisticated piece probably wasn’t enough to claim your outfit as an elegant outfit in the first place.
What so ever, there should be no sporty elegant confusion in the first place. As both of these outfits are just casual. Therefore we are talking merely about the casual style. And not sporty elegant style.
Now that we have finally cleared this sporty elegant confusion, once and for all I hope, let’s head on those sporty and elegant feelings.
HOW TO FEEL ELEGANT WHEN WEARING TRACK PANTS AND SNEAKERS
I must admit, I felt so uncomfortable wearing bomber jackets, sneakers and even more track pants as a teen. I always felt to be underdressed and looking anything but myself. Honestly, I couldn’t get rid of this feeling up until recently. Sure I might have changed my mind about everything once I entered in the 20s. You know, started to give a s* for everything that wasn’t worthy of a second thought. Yet I think it was the fashion itself that made me see the athleisure differently. And even feel different when wearing sporty pieces.
Blame it on the sandals. But when the track pants all the sudden became fashionable, as we started wearing them with sandals I changed my mind over the track pants. Remember how I wore my track pants for the first time over here?
ONCE YOU SWAP SANDALS FOR THE SNEAKERS
Surely, feeling elegant in track pants when wearing sandals or nice chic pumps (ps. transparent for spring summer 2018) is not a big deal at all. You know what I mean. Those track pants turn out to be just another pants. That is as long as they are not made of cotton or velour of course.
Still, everything changes when you swap your sandals or pumps for sneakers. That chic casual outfit instantly turns out to be a sporty outfit. And yes, even if you couldn’t actually run in it.
So how to bring back some chic glimpse to that sporty outfit and make you feel more sophisticated again? It’s actually quite simple. Just put on your double-breasted coat or long trench coat and voilà your sporty outfit will turn out into this chic casual outfit again while making you feel fierce and sophisticated in a way.
Not to say anything else, have a look on how I wear the track pants with the sneakers.

THE SOPHISTICATED PIECES
As said in the beginning this outfit is actually my first try at pulling off the white monochrome outfit. You know one out of three monochrome fashion trends every fashion girl will wear for spring summer 2018? By the way, have you checked my Spring Summer 18 Fashion Report already? You can read and download it over here.
Surely I have failed this all in white fashion trend, as this wool coat that I’m wearing is far from white. Plus I’m wearing a black silk blouse underneath the coat. Not mentioning the yellow bag. What so ever, those pieces were essential this time. Besides, it was too cold, and my white ruffled trench was out of the option as well.
Nevertheless, if you want to go for all in white fashion trend when wearing white track pants and white sneakers, make sure you style them with these pieces in the widget below. Ps. I will wear this outfit soon by myself too, so make sure you follow me on Instagram and Facebook to be the first one to see it.
As said before, the double-breasted coat or a long trench coat is essential piece when you want to upgrade your sporty outfit and make it chic casual. Plus feeling elegant while walking around dressed in track pants and sneakers. I’m wearing Weekend Max Mara pastel coat. You can shop Max Mara coat here. Looks almost the same.
BLACK SILK BLOUSE
You can see my black silk blouse peaking underneath the coat. I’m quite sure you already know this is my favourite black blouse as you have seen me wearing it so many times before. Last time over here. Oh yes, this black silk blouse is from Juicy Couture. By the way, Juicy Couture has some great blouses again. This one here is my favourite.
THE ATHLEISURE PIECES – WHITE TRACK PANTS WITH SNEAKERS
Finally, the sporty pieces. You already know these white track pants from the time I wore them with the sandals (open this link and read it later). Again, these white track pants are from Escada (you can shop Escada track pants here).
If you have been on my street quite often, then you must have spotted these white sneakers several times before too. Well, not so many times as the coat, as these sneakers are not the most comfortable sneakers I have. I still keep stumbling when wearing them. Still, apparently, it’s just me, as my friends love them. Ps. Let me know in the comments below if you too happen to have these white Diesel sneakers. Well, if you don’t have them yet and want to try your luck with these pair of white leather sneakers from Diesel, you can shop them here. À la fin, they are a lovely addition to every casual outfit. I mean, white sneakers are a staple.
Lastly, the yellow shoulder bag. Escada again. You can get this adorable bag over here. Believe me, you need this bag too. And no, not only because of the logo (you know it’s logomania time) but because this bag is in size you, are looking for. Roomy enough to put in everything you need to survive through the fashion week or Easter escape. By the way, check here to find out how to dress for Easter City break in Europe.
