Two things that define my middle school experience: my love for pink velour Juicy Couture tracksuits, and Disney movies. Needless to say, I wasn’t one of the popular kids. However, just like all trends, everything that was once perceived as stylish eventually comes back into fashion; and the beloved eighth grade tracksuit that you swore would never see the light of day again has become one of the must-have items of 2017.
On Monday, the tracksuit giant Juicy Couture announced that it would release a limited edition ‘Beauty & the Beast’-inspired collection—and its everything you could have ever dreamed it to be. The comfortable-looking loungewear collection is comprised of two jackets that sparkle with thousands of Swarovski crystals.
The first jacket is the “Stained Glass Rose” Robertson Jacket ($698 at Juicy Couture), that is a midnight navy color, and features a Swarovski crystal stained glass rose decal on the back. If you want to spend a couple months’ rent on a tracksuit jacket, some of the pain will be eased by the knowledge that it incorporates 5,300 crystals.
The second is a Belle-yellow “Beauty Within” Westwood Jacket ($598 at Juicy Couture), that has a gorgeous decal made with 3,300 Swarovski crystals, which reads the inspirational quote, “Beauty Found Within.”
While these pricetags aren’t meant for anyone short of a princess, you can’t help but swoon over these luxury loungewear pieces. The crystals might be extravagant for the movie theatre, but for the diehard fans of either the tracksuit brand, the live-action movie, or both, this could be the collection of your dreams.
