Paris Hilton went back to her Y2K fashion roots while arriving at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport in Mumbai, India, today. The socialite styled a velour tracksuit making for a quintessential Hilton look, sneakers included.
The “Simple Life” star dipped into the Y2K archives and popped on a black velour tracksuit with metallic silver detailing. The outfit consisted of a hoodie and matching comfy flared sweatpants. Both the bottoms and sleeves of the top were emblazoned with heart and star patches.
Tracksuits, like the color pink and the phrase, “That’s Hot,” have become a part of Hilton’s fashion DNA. The comfortable loungewear was practically put on the map by the “Stars are Blind” songstress, Hilton having worn velour sets in a wide array of styles often in the early 2000s.
The set was paired up with black sneakers with pops of neon green and pink along with reflective chrome detailing that made the casual style stand out further. Chunky sneakers usually come equipped with thick rubber soles and an oversized silhouette that makes them much more casual.
Chunky sneakers style’s popularity slowed in the 2000s but reemerged as part of the divisive “ugly” shoe trend in the late-2010s.
The “Paris in Love” star’s shoe wardrobe is wide-ranging. Hilton has worn a variety of pumps and sneakers by the likes of Steve Madden, Jimmy Choo, and Giuseppe Zanotti over the years, frequently accented with maximalist crystals or mixed materials. Her footwear rotation also includes Alaïa boots, Rothy’s flats, and comfy K-Swiss sneakers.
