In My Tracksuit

Ok well maybe not change the whole world, but the difference I will make could possibly be done in a tracksuit… if I had my own way.
It’s a fact that image is important. No matter where we are or what we’re doing, in this day and age someone is always watching. However, what I also find important is comfort.
Living with sickle cell, one of the main symptoms I have to manage is pain (often on a daily basis) and this has a huge impact on what I wear. I love fancy clothes and stunning heels but unfortunately that’s not practical for me every day. My reality is clothes that are non restrictive and comfortable and a tracksuit gives me all this and more.
Thankfully, style and stigma has evolved over the years when it comes to tracksuits and I have come a long way from the classic hoody and baggy sweats combo.
Although it’s highly unlikely that I’d turn up to a conference or deliver a talk in a tracksuit, I can now rock a neat, stylish one for my regular day to day activities that has all the comfort qualities I need while still looking trendy and cute.
