Head to your boyfriend’s/brother’s closet, cause it’s time to steal his track jacket.

That’s right, I’ve given the men’s wardrobe staple a feminine makeover to show you that girls can easily wear track jackets too.

They’re just as chic on a female frame and the styling ideas below should offer up some inspiration on how to inject a little blokecore into your next fit with this athleisure jacket style.

Fit Idea #1 | Vintage Track Jacket + Dress Trousers + Polo Shirt

The spring Miu Miu fashion show was teeming with various iterations of tracksuit pieces and it provided inspiration for this outfit.

The neat thing about this look is that if you remove the sporty jacket you’ll be ready for a day at the office.

Give this trick a try by popping a track jacket on over a business look to instantly transform it from work mode to after dark dressing.

The casual athletic jacket creates a stronger juxtaposition with the dressy slacks and polo shirt (and is much more unexpected) than when paired with your typical jean jacket.

Next time you reflexively reach for your denim jacket, give a track jacket a try instead for a fresh take on high-low dressing.

Fit Idea #2 | Track Jacket + Running Shorts + Bike Shorts + Dressy Blouse

Why not make your own tracksuit by pairing matching athletic pieces?

Here I’ve paired preloved Adidas tracksuit shorts with a vintage Pony track jacket. It was a real thrifting miracle that the coloring of each item is so identical that they combine to make the perfect tracksuit.

To give your tracksuit an unexpected twist, use a dressy blouse to break up the sporty vibe.

Go for a floral version (in colors that mesh well with the tracksuit) to elevate your athletic street style fit.

Color-blocked trekking sandals from Teva worn with socks, bike shorts, and a ’90s style nylon purse earn this look a stamp of approval for fashion week.

Fit Idea #3 | Track Jacket + Floral Maxi Dress

Use a varsity track jacket to elicit schoolgirl vibes and pair it over the quintessential dress for summer: a floral maxi.

Aviator shades add a bit of borrowed-from-the-boys vibes and to embrace a revived trend of the ‘90s, style your maxi dress with bleach-white socks and penny loafers (here are my favorite styles).

So very Elaine Benes circa 1993.

Whereas this version is ready for your weekend activities, if you remove the jacket you have another work-appropriate look.
