I never thought I would see the day when the plus size velour tracksuit would be back in style, but now that it is, I don’t hate it! In fact, young Natalie who used to be obsessed with the Juicy Couture velour tracksuit is living for this moment!
I first became aware of velour’s rise to prominence when I saw Kim Kardashian’s velour Skims tracksuit. The new velour line features bralettes and velour robes, which look super luxe and—in my opinion—elevate the velour material.
Since the Skims velour line sold out so fast, I turned to Fashion Nova Curve—which already had a plus size velour tracksuit in so many different colors. Since I haven’t embraced the material much over the past decade, I decided to ease into it with an all black look. But as I get more comfortable with the velour trend and wearing this plus size velour tracksuit, I may try bolder colors. All-in-all, I absolutely love wearing this tracksuit. Whether I am working from home or running to the grocery store, this is currently my go-to set. I also love to slide on some crisscross fuzzy slippers when I am lounging around to get the full cozy and luxe feel. The crisscross style of fuzzy slippers has been so popular lately so I included a bunch of my favorite styles in the shop widget below!
I could get used to wearing plus size loungewear every day…oh wait, I already have! #thanksquarantine
And now, I am afraid to admit it, but wearing this velour tracksuit has made me want to start looking for the original Juicy Couture jumpsuit with the crystalized “Juicy” on the butt. I hope the brand jumps on the velour hype and starts to create more inclusive tracksuits!
SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 2X in this Fashion Nova Curve Velour Tracksuit, which is my usual size, and it fits perfectly!
