The Juicy Couture tracksuit was the height of early 2000s fashion.
Paris Hilton was the ‘it’ girl of the time and wore her velour two pieces with pride.
Now in the year 2020, Y2K style is back in fashion, meaning it was only a matter of time before velour tracksuits made a reappearance.
In October, Kim Kardashian unveiled her version of the noughties classic for her brand SKIMS. Paris Hilton featured in the launch photos causing a social media meltdown with its witty nostalgia.
We never thought a velour tracksuit would claim ‘it’ piece status, but 2020 has offered us shocks on a silver platter. Plus, the timing is perfect, because comfort has been key all year. And the velour tracksuit puts all our other loungewear sets to shame.

A velour tracksuit would make being at home 24 hours a day a much more enjoyable experience. Eating breakfast, lunch and dinner in your home office would feel a lot more glamorous with a matching two-piece. While popping to the corner shop would be all the more exciting because who knows? You might just get papped walking out with a carton of milk and a box of Cornflakes in hand.
The possibilities of life are endless with a velour tracksuit and who doesn’t want to feel like Paris Hilton, even just for a day?
Thankfully, the retail world is blessing us with velour sets that would put the heiress to shame.
Here are three of our favourites.

Juicy Couture tracksuits are the original and the best. This two-piece from Urban Outfitters is the noughties in outfit form but if you want to do this trend the right way, you have to fully commit.

Get them at SKIMS.
Kim Kardashian’s brand SKIMS has become synonymous with comfort and loungewear. Her reiteration of the velour tracksuit kickstarted the trend once again and the extra soft texture of this set is one of the reasons it continues to sell out. Most definitely on our Christmas wishlist.
Lipsy velour tracksuit
Comfort is key (Picture: Next)
Get it at Next.
Looking for something a little more subdued? Then this charcoal velour set from Lipsy is perfect. Wear it all day at home or with a parka and trainers for a stylish lazy day outfit.
