Acing Athleisure

Are you wondering how you can wear you gym clothes outside and still be considered fashionable even when you’re not headed to the gym? Welp, there is a fashion trend that can help you accomplish that goal and it is called Athleisure in which clothing designed for workouts and other athletic activities is worn in other settings, such as at the workplace, at school, or at other casual or social occasions. This means that you can transition effortlessly from your soul cycle class to a casual cocktail event without looking out of place (but please shower in between).

“Athleisure is a trend in fashion in which clothing designed for workouts and other athletic activities is worn in other settings, such as at the workplace, at school, or at other casual or social occasions.”

Brands like Ivy Park, Under Armour, LuLu Lemon, Nike, Supreme, Adidas and Fila to name a few have been instrumental in expanding definition and wearability of athletic wear. Now a days athletic wear is more tailored and fun to wear which makes it more pleasurable to incorporate into your wardrobe.

CREATING THE LOOK

I paired a shawl collar blazer with adidas track pants, adidas superstar sneakers, black and white graphic print socks and an patterned/textured t-shirt. I topped off the look with a baseball cap to give it that sporty spice. You could easily make this look more casual by rocking a track jacket or locker tee shirt under the blazer or ditching the blazer all together. You could also take a more dressed up approach by swapping the blazer for an overcoat or by wearing a dressier shoe such as a wing tipped boot.

Are you into the athleisure trend? Let me know below in the comments,

In Love, Peace and Style,
