The fashion world has been going nuts over the re- launch of a very popular at the start of the decade; I am talking about the matching velour Juicy Couture jumpsuit. Paris Hilton, Mariah Carey, Kim K, Brittany Spears, and many other celebs loved to model the Juicy Couture velour tracksuits back in the 2000s.
It was because of these celebs, that at every birthday and Christmas I would always ask my parents for one of these most coveted fashion items. Sadly, I was never the girl rocking the popular hot pink tracksuit with the dangling J on the zipper. In fact, I was not mad at my parents for not buying me a Juicy jump suit; I loved wearing my knockoff velour suits from places like Old Navy and The Children’s Place. I could get like 10 jumpsuits for the price of one Juicy Couture tracksuit. But sadly, since I wore the jumpsuits without the J charm, I was not considered “cool,” oh well. For $200, my parents would rather not spend it on a piece of fabric that was just a trend, and boy were they right because within a short time, the matchy match jumpsuit was no longer the buzz. In fact, in 2014 the creators of Juicy Couture closed all of their stores. The once coveted Juicy Couture was replaced with the arrival of new trends, like skinny jeans.
Now in 2016, everyone can’t get enough of the athlesuire trend. Athlesiure can be described as casual and comfy athletic clothes that look like you just went to the gym but are actually just super fashion forward. Think Lululemon leggings, nylon quarter zip ups, and classic Adidas sneakers.
But what’s the athleisure trend without a good track suit? So the time is right for Juicy Couture to rebrand and luckily Bloomingdales agrees. Juicy Couture and Bloomingdales re-launched the popular velour jumpsuit. At Bloomingdales you can find the ever so popular low-rise pants with matching slim fit jacket with the iconic J charm on the zipper. The limited designer collection is all about bringing back the tracksuit and the look of the 2000s. If you were a big fan of this look at the beginning of the new century you are going to love the #TRACKISBACK campaign. Head over to Bloomingdale’s to purchase the timeless hoodie and flared pant set in seven different colors for $108.
Remember in my 70’s post, seen here, I said trends like to repeat themselves, well the Juicy Track Suit is just another example of the repeating fashion cycle. Let me know in the comments below if you will be re-living the 2000s by sporting one of the revamped tracksuit or would you rather not wear head to toe velour.
