Do you recall when you first discovered the track suit? I think it was probably in college for me which was in the mid 70’s. Today we are stepping back in time and giving you some history and a timeline on this athletic warmup suit that has evolved into fashionable streetwear. Check out a new hip brand of tracksuits that we are loving.
1960’s & 70’s
Back in the 1960’s space-age technology in fabrics gave way for the tracksuit to make its way into sports worn before and after events. A little later in the
Then in the
1990’s & 2000’s
This period of time is when pop culture & hip hop adopted the tracksuit. Jay- Z and Diddy even created their own labels making it cool to wear the same thing every day. How about Juicy Couture? They took the style but changed the fabric to a soft velour. By the late 2000s, the tracksuit trend faded away for a while.

Pam & Gela ~ Brand Review
Just recently I was just looking around the internet for some track style outfits that would serve multi purpose and tripped across the brand Pam & Gela. I was all in on first look. I first bought the black set and I loved it so much that I went back to the site and found the red printed set.
They run fairly true to size. I did buy the medium but I could have worn the small. I don’t like tight fitting clothes anymore so I opted to bump up a size. It is all your preference. Also, this line is a little pricey but for me, if I can get a lot of wear out of it then I don’t mind spending the extra dollars. We have linked several styles at the end of the post and a couple of them are on sale.
Whether you like the tracksuit look for mainstream fashion or not, it is here to stay. The designers will just keep recreating it adding a new twist. If Pam & Gela is out of your budget then check out your favorite retailers because you will probably find some really cute sets for much less.
