Chainmail dresses, chokers, UGG boots—this year’s fashion trends were filled with #TBT moments. And, before the year ends, we’re adding one more to the list. Say hello again to the velour tracksuit!
Made popular by stars of the early 2000s—Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Kim Kardashian to name a few—the ultra-comfortable velour craze is once again making its way into the wardrobes of the rich and famous. That’s right, you can wear UGG boots (ICYMI: there’s a new heeled iteration) and a bubblegum pink Juicy Couture tracksuit, channel your inner Regina George (a nicer version, hopefully) and be completely on trend.
While the look gained a reputation as the soccer mom’s uniform, celebs today are giving the sweatsuit a modern twist, pairing them with high heels, retro sunglasses and glam beauty looks. Case in point: Katy Perry‘s Juicy Couture crop top and maxi skirt. The star revamps the casual look with red cat-eye shades, just before hitting the Museum of Ice Cream—because this outfit clearly needs an epic photo opp.
Check out how celebrities are giving the throwback trend a new look below!

Then again who doesn’t love wearing one color head-to-toe? According to this style star, you can’t have too much of a good thing. Hailey offers a nice twist with a pant suit with a similar fabric, then adds a bag and Gucci loafers in a matching hue.
Khloe just might be the kween of the bodysuit, launching her own Good American designs this fall. If you’d rather skip out on the track jacket, a bodysuit adds a sultry appeal to this causal style. With heeled boots, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star transforms her Juicy Couture sweats into a fashionable ensemble.

We clearly can’t get enough of this trend, as it comes back into the fold after more than a decade. Now, E! is releasing a new series that documents how Juicy Couture started with two women, Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor, that grew their $200 investment into a billion-dollar brand and fashion trend with longevity. Juicy Stories is coming soon!
