Everyone loves slouching around in tracksuits on a lazy Sunday, choosing comfort over style as we loll about in front of the TV.

It might come as a surprise, then, that tracksuit trousers are no longer the premise of chavs, Vicky Pollard or gym goers, but are actually gracing the catwalk.

Mary-Kate and Ashley’s Elizabeth and James line, found on Vogue’s Facebook page, shows us how slouchy trousers can be luxe as well as casual.

So the questions is not only, “would you wear this?” but also, “Would you wear this as a fashion statement?”

Right now, sportswear is having a fashion forward override. These tracksuits aren’t akin to how local lads dress when they make a regular trip to the local park, but have been brought forward to 2015 with a chic dress-up.

Elle Magazine put together the above look to try and convice us all to incorporate the sweatpant into our daily style. 

Fashion brands including Chloe, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Bottega Veneta and Celine have all jumped on the sportswear bandwagon and given it a high-fashion seal of approval.

Versace Cruise 2016 showed us all how it’s done with a sleek full tracksuit. We’re being advised to style them with bombers, chunky jewellery and dressed up or dressed down.

So the question is, will you don the Vicky Pollard look and own the couture image whilst rolling around in blissful comfort? 

Would you wear this? Let us know in the comments below!
