I am the biggest advocate when it comes to activewear being worn as fashion. There’s nothing worse than those Monday mornings when the thought of putting together an outfit with jeans and heels makes you instantly uncomfortable. Luckily for us, athleisure has totally upped its game as of late and the dream of wearing leggings, an oversized sweatshirt and sneakers is no longer out of reach.
Here are some of the best ways you can rock athleisure this season:
Bike shorts are one of my favourite ‘ugly-pretty’ trends, and I’m sure you’ll have some mixed emotions about this one too. This trend came straight off the Paris Fashion Week runway and didn’t look back. If you don’t mind showing off your peachy booty, or sometimes just can’t be bothered with real pants, this trend is for you.
Side-stripe pants nod to the tracksuit trend but still have a city slicker appeal. They can be paired with heels for an office vibe, sneakers for a relaxed look and even a pair of slides for a effortlessly perfect. If you’re struggling to detach yourself from your favourite pair of tracksuit pants, it’s time to invest in some of these beauties!
Nothing says activewear like an amazing pair of shoes. Sneakers are the perfect way to keep your look low-key and comfortable, while still completely nailing activewear chic. Pair your sneakers with a stylish outfit for the ultimate ‘sporty on the top, business down the bottom’ outfit.
Leggings & Crops
My ultimate athleisure go-to would have to be a pair of leggings and a cropped top. Unfortunately, it isn’t totally acceptable to rock the two piece in every circumstance. Add a chic coat and handbag to elevate this look from comfort to chic instantly.
Embrace your activewear ladies, it’s cooler than ever! Xoxo
