    FL, these are the flash pants that several of us are talking about as 'active wear'. I don't count these as gym/workout pants as I'd never be comfortable wearing them in that situation.

    These are more an 'inbetween' of trackies and jeans IYKWIM. I wouldn't wear my trackies out, but sometimes can't be bothered putting jeans on either.

But I jogged past another woman wearing leggings with the contour stripes on them and a bright orange racer back singlet. So then I realised maybe that was 'gym clothes' and no, I wouldn't wear that to the shops. I wouldn't even wear it to the gym!
    No idea what the real definitions are, but in my world the other woman was wearing "gym/workout gear", while you were wearing "active wear". To me "active wear" is anything that's comfortable enough to move around/exercise/be active in, without specifically being designed for exercise only, IYKWIM. I spend most of my life in "active wear", but I only own one outfit of "gym/workout gear" which I would only wear on a day I was going for a proper run or to Zumba class or whatever (and yes, on a day like that I WOULD wear it to the shops or to get a coffee; it's a nicer and more expensive outfit than any of the clothes in my wardrobe! ).

    I wouldn't wear those out. Too close to trackies for me

    See these are what I call trackies... What are trackies, then?? Like the old school elasticated ankle things with the toggle drawstrings?

    Not sure if you're saying those LJ pants are trackies but yes to me they are trackies and I wouldn't wear them in public. Having said that I would wear them to the beach.

    I also wouldn't wear this, which is what I think of as a more traditional tracksuit (either part of it alone or together):

    I don't give a rats what others wear - I wouldn't do it - it's not me. I'm a jeans woman all the way. I have had a loathing of trackies / leisure wear most of my life.

    ETA I think I am elastic waist phobic.

    Ooh Sonja I love velour trackies like those. Would never be caught out of the house in them, but... I have a dark grey, diamante encrusted pair
    I agree the pair Pesca showed, I would call trackies. But I would wear them to the playground or to get milk bar, but not the ones you showed.

    But i think I must be getting old- the first thing I thought when i saw those pics was 'she'll get a cold tummy wearing that silly top'

    ETA the sort Pesca put up, I actually call my 'park pants' as in, they are the trackies I will happily wear for a walk in the park and a stop off at a cafe, or to the playground.

    The flash pants peska put up are far from trackies in my opinion. They aren't even the same material, they are more a light weight cotton and the fit is similar to cargo pants.

    Pesca I love the LJ flashdance pants. They are great for travelling too!

    My workout clothing is mostly very obviously workout stuff. Dry fit shirts, crop tops, 3/4 dryfight tights with reflective strips. I would wear them to-from gym but not generally around. A few of my yoga pants I would wear around the house as they are comfy!

    I am more dress up type of girl though
