The velour tracksuit is back, baby, and it's better than ever. The Juicy Couture for Urban Outfitters collection was just announced, and it's the best news we've heard since the news that Juicy would shutter all of its U.S. stores in 2014.
While Juicy Couture is still around at Kohl's stores, its partnership with Urban Outfitters definitely earns back some of the 'cool points' it's sadly lost since everyone's middle school days (oh, the trends of yesterday). Plus, with Tinashe as the face of the line (photographed by Petra Collins), we know it's going to be good.
According to a press release, the 14-piece revamp includes a pullover hoodie with stirrup pants, velour jackets and track pants, a cropped zip hoodie with matching shorts, jumpsuits, rompers, tees, bandeaus, and a body suit. The collection drops online and in select stores on February 13, and items range from $39 to $199.
Admittedly, it makes me feel a little old to know that Juicy Couture is already getting the Urban Outfitters treatment alongside other oldie-but-goodie classics like Calvin Klein, Champion, and Tommy Jeans. But if velour tracksuits are the modern retro, so be it. I'm all for nostalgic fashion brand comebacks, especially when there are sweatpants involved.
I rocked many a Juicy tracksuit back in the day, and who knows if I can still pull 'em off, but this collection makes me willing to try. Here's everything that's in it.
An updated version of the classic zip-up jacket.
This pullover has 'Juicy Couture' printed on the arm, because what would a Juicy hoodie be without some throwback branding?
This sunny bodysuit was practically made for trendy denim shorts.
Bandeau tops are a new addition to the Juicy empire.
Layer this bandeau under a white mesh tank to subtly get the message across.
5. Crown Romper
Because Juicy was the official brand of every queen bee you knew.
To be clear, that's the back view of the romper. Oh, Juicy — cheeky as ever.
Because nothing says Juicy Couture like baby pink, in the best way.
This simple cropped crew neck is blank on the front and reads "Juicy" across the back.
Just like its long-sleeve counterpart, this tee is business in the front, party in the back.
These pants make a literal statement with "Juicy" across the butt, and a style statement, too.
This velour jumpsuit is basically a socially acceptable onesie. Yes, please. (It comes in black, too.)
12. Classic Velour Jacket And Track Pants
Because, of course. The track suit comes in pink and red as well.
