Bridal Tracksuits Are Now A Thing, And We’re Into It


Move over wedding jumpsuit

If you've just started getting on board the wedding jumpsuit train, get ready to disembark and switch tracks. The bridal tracksuit is here, and it's giving the bridal romper a run down the aisle.

A more casual take on the recently popular one-piece bridal trend, the two-piece sets, reminiscent of our beloved Juicy Couture tracksuits from the early aughts, popped up at last week's Bridal Fashion Week. For his punk-inspired collection, Naeem Khan showed a sequin-embroidered number (above) complete with a front-zipper hoodie.

Never one to shy away from the fashion-forward and avant-garde, Vivienne Westwood's co-designer, Andreas Kronthaler, designed a lace bomber jacket, to go over a semi-sheer skirt, and styled it with a cap, as part of the brand's most recent (and incredibly cool) bridal collection:

Justin Alexander, too, had a take on the trend with a sheer bomber-and-ballgown tulle skirt combo:

Even the Kate Middleton-beloved and ever-elegant Jenny Packham put out a sporty look that involved a crystal-embellished short-sleeve tee and matching pants. It's no tracksuit, but it is a departure for the English designer, otherwise known for her ethereal and unabashedly feminine gowns.

While we have yet to see more incarnations of the sporty set made bridal-appropriate, we're here for it—if only to never again see a royal wedding-inspired gown.

He announced the news today

On Monday, Bernie Sanders announced that he is running for president again, after he lost the primary in 2016 to Hillary Clinton. And although he was very popular during the 2016 election, his announcement is drawing mixed reactions online.

Many of his previous supporters, including celebrities like Mark Ruffalo, were excited about him joining the 2020 race, voicing their support of his announcement.

But others seem to want him to disappear, even pretending not to know who he is. And these reactions have turned out, in some cases, to be hilarious.

The lack of excitement for his announcement may be because of the recent allegations of sexual assault which apparently occurred within his 2016 campaign, and which he claims he didn't know about. It could also be due to his base, who supported him even after he lost the primary to the detriment of Clinton's campaign.

Some are also calling out the fact that Clinton has been effectively shunned following her loss, while Sanders seems to be being welcomed back with open arms.

The pieces will take your athleisure look to the next level

American Apparel just dropped its first activewear line since the brand's relaunch last year, and I can already tell that these looks are going to make up my entire summer wardrobe.

The new line, called FORWARD, offers a variety of styles in lightweight fabrics like flyweight satin, which is an imitation of boxing gear; lame tricot; and cotton Spandex. All of the fabrics feature a four-way stretch, making the clothes "suitable for training but also designed for life outside the gym."

With the collection, American Apparel also launched an inclusive campaign called How We Play, which shows a diverse range of models, including blind Paralympic runner David Brown and curvy yoga instructor Luisa Fonseca.

The collection's styles offer a wide range of looks which will fit with just about any aesthetic, whether you're going hard at the gym or looking for a casual off-day outfit. Personally, I'm excited about the iridescent looks and the rainbow patterned bra and bottoms, which I will definitely be rocking at Pride this year.

The entire line is also super-affordable, capping out at $48, with most products priced in the $20-to-$30 range. You can shop FORWARD collection online, now.
