The Tracksuit Factor

It is commonly known that dressing up has become more relaxed, more easy going, and less formal. This is the reason, terms like "casual smart" have been used a lot lately. Nevertheless, ladies, maybe it's not a bad idea to draw a line at some point. And this line I believe, should exclude tracksuits from our everyday clothes.
This matter is not as trivial as you may think, it is a matter of life and death! The death of our style and mood. As Ines de la Fressange said the tracksuit shows abandonment. There are too many reasons not to go out in it. It doesn't look good on anyone, and I mean anyone, except models ( but a garbage bag would look nice on them too). You can't tell if you put on some weight, in order to try to lose it. It doesn't do any justice to your posture. It reminds you that you haven't been in the gym for the past 132 months. You might meet the love of your life, the father of your children, the dream employer, a style icon, why be in a tracksuit? You are not a school student. (Unless you are so go ahead and wear it). You are not in the gym (if you are, you are also excused).
Sure, there are those that argue about the comfort they provide, but at what expense! Who wants to be just comfortable? if that's the case we could wear our pj's and slippers, and be even more comfortable! Even the ladies in the picture would make no to bad impression, if they weren't famous. Wouldn't you agree?
